I turned around in the hall the other day after school and this is what I saw:first week of august 2010 0025

All I could do was scream and run back into my classroom!  I had to crop this picture to get this close…I took it safely  from my classroom door.

I don’t even like looking at this photograph, so I’m typing as fast as I can,so that I can move this picture up out of my view.

As I think about the fear I have of snakes, it makes me wonder what kinds of things should really send me running?

The Bible says to “flee from evil.”  Now, I personally think that snakes are evil, but in the end I don’t think a snake can keep me from Heaven.

But evil can.

So, my prayer today and every day is that I will have my radar up and be ready to run when conversations are not Christ-centered, when television shows are not wholesome, when movies do nothing to make me feel closer to God, and on and on and on……..

I don’t want to be a halfway Christian who picks and chooses the times I want to be holy.

I really do want to be sold out for Him. 

I think we live in a day and age when the line is going to be drawn in the sand over and over again, and we are going to have to choose Jesus or the world.

I’m praying that today as you face decisions in this world that you will see evil in the same way I saw this snake……


And I’m praying that you will run the other way.

Matt. 6:13

And lead us not into temptation,
   but deliver us from the evil.

I love you all so much.  Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Oh, and I haven’t forgotten the next lesson in Battlefield of the Mind!  I will do that tonight!!

Praying for all of you,
