Ants, Slugs, and Spiders! Oh my! Part III, The Spider!

Ooh, the spider!  *goose bumps*

Science Fiction and Hollywood CANNOT top the the spider’s menacing creepy-crawliness.  Although, they’ve tried their hearts out in movies like Alien and Predator:

They’re pretty creepy, alright, but how does this make you feel?

or this?

Oh, sure, there’s always a joker in the crowd:

But, overall, spiders are VEWY SCARWY *tears, whimper, shiver* to most of us.

And, for many, an encounter like this:

might lead to this real quick:

BUT, do you know what’s REALLY scary?

Living without knowing God.

I can’t imagine how much MORE frightening scary times would be without Him.

This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches,  but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord. ~~ Jeremiah 9:23-24

Stop, Drop, and Pray!

Let’s pray:

Oh, Father, how nice it is that You “delight in kindness, justice and righteousness in the earth”.

I am SO glad I know you.  Oh, may I boast in that to everyone in my corner of the world.  I love you, even if you did make spiders, and ants and slugs and such.

May I love you even more and more each day and understand you better and better.

In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Do YOU know Him? Click the “Stop, Drop, and Pray!” picture above to be introduced.  Go on!  It’s not scary at all. 🙂

  1. Good post. The spiders actually looked kind of cute to me. They had huge eyes and innocent stares. But the tarantula face picture was SCARY!
    Anyway, yeah, I agree with le poste. I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist.

    • Well, thanks for stopping by. I agree (kinda). The spiders do look (a little) cute, in a creepy-crawly way. I’m glad you agree with le poste. 🙂
