What a dog and a king knew…


 I could not resist putting the photograph below in a blog… because I think it is true! I LOVE dogs, and I love cats is probably my honest confession, and honest confession is what this blog is about. I am remembering a dog I had called Snoopy. I am sure someone will tell me I am mistaken but he at least seemed to have a sense of guilt! If he did something wrong there really was an atmosphere about the house. It only lifted when you gave him the  opportunity to come into the joy of forgiveness. If you asked if he was sorry, he would come tearing out of wherever he was hiding and show demonstrably how happy he was to be reinstated.

This is a very short blog today. A dog can feel the difference when the air and atmosphere is clear. Could it be that you need to come into the joy of forgiveness today? Is there something concerning which you need to simply say,“Sorry,” to the Lord and if need be to others as well?  David speaks of the heaviness that can be upon us when the  spiritual air is  not clear between ourselves and the Lord and about the joy of being forgiven. Let’s be humble enough to learn from a dog  and  a king.

Read these words and think about them

Psalm 32King James Version (KJV)

32 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.

Blessed is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile.

When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long.

For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer.

I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin.
