Don't mess with me

You want a piece of me!?!

If dogs spoke English I believe that's what you'd hear that little weenie dog saying. What could that tiny dog be thinking? As my 9th grade P.E. teacher, Coach Richardson would say, "Boy, your mouth's writing checks that your body can't cash."

Maybe you're in a spot right now where it feels like life is the big dog and you are a little chihuahua or toy poodle. I read a verse of scripture last week that I thought about it when I saw this picture:

2 Timothy 1:7
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

I try to remember every morning before I leave the house that nothing will happen to me that God doesn't already know about. Not only does He already know about it, He's already working on it. That knowledge alone should allow me to live a powerful life. When we face troubles and hardships, (and we will from time to time) we should remember that God's Spirit lives inside us and His Spirit is powerful not timid. Whatever you're facing today, look it straight in the eye and say, "You want a piece of me?"

And it also seems the little dog has an advantage. He has put on the full armor of God. Or at least a finely knit doggie sweater.
