A Beautiful Pet Blessing

Our pets depend on us for all their needs, and when they become ill, it can become all-consuming. Thankfully we can turn to God for help.

Just last week I was asking God to heal my precious doggie. The vet didn’t know what was wrong with him. I continued to pray and trust God. Yesterday, I saw signs of improvement— praise the Lord!

Sometimes the help comes right away, other times we wait. There are also times healing happens across rainbows bridge. Either way, prayer is one of the most powerful tools we have to help us get through tough times. It’s our life line to God. For pet owners, prayer is a huge comfort because we know that God cares for our pets and understands how important they are to us.

Join with me in praying for our beloved pets. . .

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. — Psalm 5:3

Making lists can be very useful, but when anxious thoughts greet us with the sunrise, nag at us all day, and accompany us to bed, something is out of balance. Recently I became so overwhelmed with my “to do” list all I could do was cry. Yet while the storm was raging within, my dog lay calmly by my side without a care in the world.
