Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.

Who doesn’t love a great story about a boy and his dog! Today’s post is about that and more. It’s about friendship, faith and disappointments. Those are all a part of life and trusting God in the midst of them is a wise thing to do. Todays guest blogger is wise beyond his years and speaks from the heart. Kyle is an optimistic, strong, faithful young man who has one of those smiles that can light up a room. He is writing about his dog in this post but Kyle knows this lesson on a much deeper level. Kyle lost his mom after a courageous, inspiring, and grace filled battle with cancer when he was in the fourth grade. He has shown us all what it truly looks like to be a faithful disciple who seeks the love and peace of God when trials and disappointments come.
“You are looking for Jesus Of Nazareth… He is risen! He is not here.” MARK 16:6
I use to have two dogs. They were awesome! They would play with each other. They were great hunting dogs. They were a lot of things. People say all things come to an end. I don’t believe that. One of the dogs died and one ran away. Does that mean it was over? It doesn’t, because we got another dog and that one was even more awesome! Instead of having two dogs that were buddies; WE were buddies. Whenever I did something wrong and felt bad I went straight to my dog. My dog never judged me and was always by my side. My dog was always there for me.
What God is saying in this scripture verse is that if you lose something, something good will come. Even better than my dog, God will just always be there no matter what. If you do something wrong God will be there for you, if you feel bad, God will be there for you, if you need the best friend of all, God will be there for you.
My dog and I are close but I have to ask myself, what should I do in your life to grow closer to God. You have to relate his presence to real life situations. You have to always think about what you can do to be a stronger disciple.
A Seed To Plant: Read a Scripture verse each day, just one per day. Then all you have to do is try to relate. See what you can do to grow closer to God. Be the best disciple you can be.
Thank you Kyle, you are amazing!
Blessings on your day!
