Bull shark faith

Bull sharkSome sharks will take a little nibble and decide you don’t taste good and spit you out. Bull sharks will have a bite and then come back for more. Some sharks will circle you and test the water and sniff around to see if you smell good. Bull sharks will go straight for their prey and eat it without stopping for a sniff. Some sharks will only eat fish. Bull sharks will eat license plates.

Do you see where I’m going with this?

If you’ve read my blog much, you know I usually bring things back around to the subject of faith. And Shark Week has me all stirred up.

I don’t want to settle for anything less than what God has provided for me in His Word and through Jesus Christ. I don’t want to be held back by the cares of this world and the attacks of the devil. That doesn’t mean that things aren’t going to happen, because I know they are. I also know how to deal with them when they do. And when there’s something out there I want, I learned a few things from the bull shark.

Grab on, and don’t let go. Don’t quit. Don’t throw away the blessings that are all around you. If you don’t get it done on the first pass, hit ’em again. And most importantly, stay in the game.

And if I can keep myself in the game, I know Almighty God is right there, backing me up.

    Right On, Juli! In life we have to swim with the sharks…all kinds of them! We also swim with God…if we stick with Him….The Holy Spirit will show us how to respond to each kind of shark!
