Today I saw a dead mouse on the floor of my garage:

My first thought was ‘I have to find the cat that did that and punish it.

I admit this is not a very christian thing to think.

 

 

After I took a closer look I saw the ‘mouse better’

I felt relieved but confused at the same time.  I wondered what God was telling me by the experience.

For one thing, my mind is not all it’s cracked up to be.  My perceptions are often wrong.  I need God and God is good.  This last idea came because I was glad not to have to dispose of a dead mouse.

‘Father, help me see things in truth.  Your goodness is more present than I ever knew.  Change my mind into Your mind.’

Ps 100:5 (KJ2000) ” 5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations. ”

Not just 3 generations or even a thousand generations but ALL.
