My Bravery (& Faith) Came To A Breathtaking Stop

March 26, 2018

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength… all things except kill a rattlesnake.

However, if I’m honest, I probably could have killed that snake if I had really needed to. Or if I would have stopped long enough to pray about it and look to God for strength. But I didn’t.

Let’s go back to the beginning…

Here’s What Happened

Friday morning, I went out back to sit at my picnic table to read my Bible. It was a little colder than I normally would have liked for reading outside, but we had gotten a notice that our power would be out for a few hours, so they could do some work on the lines. Thus, I decided to head out anyways.

I set my Bible on the picnic table and turned around to go back in the house for my cup of coffee.

And that’s when I saw it…

A baby rattlesnake.

It was curled up on the bricks right outside my back door, and I had walked right past it.

Worse yet, it was blocking my way back into the house.

Thus, I did what any sane person would do… I jumped onto the picnic table.
