Here is Puppy Lesson Number Three…
Sometimes after an especially drenching experience a few good shakes from head to toe aren’t quite enough. Joey enjoys a good rub down and cuddle from his owner. Sure he will air dry eventually, but it isn’t near as cozy as being wrapped up in a soft towel and being restored to his soft cuddly self.
Praise God! He doesn’t leave us to air dry! When life has drenched us, from our own doing or from someone else, He is waiting and ready to wrap us up in His mighty towel and hold us until we are restored back to our soft cuddly selves! God wraps us up when we pray…when we meditate on His Word…when we worship.
We can stand around shivering and air dry, but why when a good cuddle in a soft towel will restore us so much faster!
“But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress” Psalm 59:16 (NASB)
