Possum Promises

I love that my God has a sense of humor.

Possums are funny creatures, some say they are cute, some find them rather ugly. To me, they're a funny reminder from my God.

A few months ago I was complaining to someone that I had never seen a possum alive. It seemed that I saw dead possums in the middle of the road all the time, but never a live one. We happened to be at a small group bible study when this conversation took place. Jokingly we prayed that I would see a possum. Wouldn't you know that on the way home I saw not one, but two possums. Little blessings :)

Fast forward to last week. The Lord rewarded a rough week and a crummy day with a possum crossing the road. It was all I needed to remember that God cares about the little things as much as the big things, that my rough week was only that, and that it mattered to God.

All that to say: "Thank you Jesus for possums" :)

Possums are nasty when they are cornered. Believe me.

Why are you not studying John Ortberg instead of talking about nasty rat like marsupials?
