Are you caught in the Dog Pen?


I don't remember if I shared this already or not, but if I did...you will just get to hear it again. Last week when my husband went out to his car to leave for work he noticed that Shad, our dog, was wound up more than normal. He actually noticed him barking a lot since 5:30 that morning. Well when he got in his car and turned on his lights...you won't believe it. There was a cat in the Shad's pen! It was sitting up on top of his doghouse. Why in the world the cat would ever be possessed to get in there is beyond me. Hubby distracted the dog so the cat could jump out. But later this whole scenario got me to thinking. How many of us are like that cat? We don't see the devil and think ..."I could sneak in there just one time and I will never get caught." And then to our surprise Satan comes out from the Shadows and we are trapped. He has us cornered and there is nothing that we can do about it. We have to call upon the Lord to "distract" Satan so we can get away from his hold.

I praise the Lord today that he sent his Son to die for my sins so I don't have to be trapped by Satan in the pen. I was given a free and easy way out. Just something for you all to think about today. God's blessings.

Great post Melanie and oh so true. That is an OLD picture of the dog though. He is still a whelp there. =)
