Be On the Alert!

1 Peter 5:6-10 (English Standard Version)

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,  casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.  Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.  Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

I took these photos at the Dallas Zoo this past Friday. I was happy they were in an enclosed area. They look docile in these photos but we all know we would be their prey in the wilderness.

Hope your Tuesday is starting off well. As usual I’m trying to get my bearings re-established after being away…

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Yes, I’m not ‘lyin’, I understand that ‘getting your bearings’ part after my whirlwind trip to Phx. Enjoy your day! I would love to go for a walk–cool and sunny here.

  2. What a gorgeous creature….looks so cuddly…looks truly are deceiving. It is so necessary that we press in to know that we are embracing Truth at all times….no being deceived by what looks right, but knowing if Truth is the real foundation. Great post Ellen!

  3. What incredible photos. They are beautiful creatures, but you’re right – don’t want to get up close and personal with them. Beautiful scripture too. laurie
