Obstacles

I’m watching our shortest dog right now. His legs are 6 inches long all the way stretched at best. I called to him to give him some much needed love. I guess I never really payed attention to all the obstacles he faces every day in his regular routine. He has to walk around shoes and over what looks like an ocean of one blanket without being tangled up. Past my 6 year old who is attempting to get his attention but he actively ignores and dodge his older brother pepper that acts as though he’s pumped full of caffeine all the time. Sneak by his sister, Grace that swats him just to be ornery all to try and jump on the couch next to me but doesn’t quite make it all the way up! Poor little guy. His day is very challenging to say the least but that doesn’t stop him from prevailing. This reminds me of the devil. He waits around every corner throwing all kinds of obstacles in our path to trip us up. All the more reason to stay vigilant and alert keeping our eyes fixed on God. He will guide us and lead us toward victory.
