The Great Power Outage

Vern doesn’t feel well. He threw up his breakfast in several different piles and is now sitting very still. He doesn’t have the energy he usually does. Instead of playing with his sister Bee, he glares around the room with no power to move.

Have you ever felt the power to move forward has been zapped out of you? Instead of getting the important tasks on your to do list done, you sit frozen in front of a screen, with no energy to proceed.

Can you imagine a day without power? Not the electrical kind but the kind that we can possess to change and draw closer to our main source?

When Jesus was getting ready to die, he warned his disciples of three days when the power would be cut off. Days filled with hopelessness and impossibilities.

Matthew 26:31 “Then Jesus told them, “This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’”

And sure enough, Jesus was crucified and with unmet expectations and shattered dreams, his sheep fell away. And for three days, while Jesus lay in the tomb, the power was cut off. Darkness filled the hearts of the people. From all appearances, Satan had won and the world was his to reign.

But then on the third day, Jesus rose. And in that moment, the power came on. Power to raise men from the grave, power to change our impossibilities to incredible possibilities. Power to unite his sheep.

Vern did get up long enough to take a short walk before falling asleep on his blanket. Hopefully, with a little bit of time, he will be back to his normal self.

Hello. My name is Cora. I live in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and two French Bulldogs, Vern and Bee. For thirty-two years, I taught children with unique needs. When I was eligible for retirement, I decided it was time to explore life from a different perspective. So with pen and paper, I have taken up blogging about two of the most extraordinary pets I know. More important than my pooches, is my relationship with God. I love God! He has blessed me with the gift of writing and I want to share what he is teaching me as I look through the eyes of four legged friends. So if you would like to experience how God works in all his creatures, join us on our adventure! When I first started blogging, my Frenchie, Carl inspired me through his crazy antics. But as life has it, Carl had to leave this world at the tender age of four. After a period of mourning for my little guy, I brought Vern home where he has ruled the roost. Oh, did I mention Bee, the Frenchie with a girl attitude and enough spunk to keep Vern in line. Come along beside us as we dive into God’s word and learn morsels of the treasures that only the scriptures can teach us. Vern and Bee would love to get to know you as well, so please feel free to follow us and share your comments….
