Devotional - Friday, December 22, 2017 356/9

Today's Scripture: "Do not fret because of evildoers, nor be envious of the workers of iniquity." Ps 37:1

6031. How ironic that what scares us can wind up servicing us? JG

See it.


Live it.

When I turned on my bed-side lamp this morning, I saw the shadow of a giant claw. Then I realized it was a shadow cast from an extended back-scratcher overhanging my night stand. As is the case most of the time, I capture interesting images knowing they will eventually fit a particular narrative.

It didn't take long to find the right story to match my toothless-danger photo. As is also the case, my concern turned to comforting thoughts because I can use the scary object to reach and scratch what itches on my back. Oooh, ahh, oh yeah!

Pray it.

I can turn my anxiety to thanksgiving, God, knowing I am encapsulated by You.
