Spunky is our Australian shepherd and Chow mix dog. She has bounds of energy and is so much fun. She has one very noticeable tendency. Anxiousness! Lightening and thunder throw her into a shaking tizzy. Loud noises and beeping, especially from a fire alarm that needs batteries will increase her anxiousness and result in her leaning into whoever is home.

Today was the day that she visited the groomer. Yes, this too creates havoc in our nervous Nelly.  I felt terrible leaving her, standing there, shaking, puppy eyes and all.

Maybe she doesn't remember that I always come back, or that nothing bad will happen to her. Has she forgotten how beautiful she will look after all that old fur has been removed?

I can be so much like Spunky. I often become afraid of the unknown, things can startle me. Unlike her, it isn't the loud sounds that create havoc for me. Instead it is the things that shake me to the core, divorces, sickness, tragedy, suffering.

My anxiousness occurs when I forget that Jesus is coming back. 
  • When I fail to remember His promise to always be with me. Matthew 28:20, Hebrews 13:5
  • When I have taken my eyes off of Him and have focused on the problems. Philippians 3:13

Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6

Father, Keep me in your peace.  Help me to remember that you will always be with me.  I can trust in you.
