Prevailing in Place

Snoopy as the Red Baron with a face mask on.
Original drawing by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Snoopy never gave up the fight

Though the enemy came on strong

Attacking all that was good and right

Snoopy never gave up the fight

He fearlessly fought with all his might

Against the things he knew were wrong

Snoopy never gave up the fight

Though the enemy came on strong

I drew this picture for my daughter who has been a #Snoopy fan since she was a little girl.

She saw a picture yesterday of just Snoopy’s doghouse, no Snoopy on top of it as he was “Sheltering in Place”.

It made us both feel so sad, 😥 that I told her I would draw him as the Red Baron with a mask on, signifying he was staying strong and not giving up.

Encourage Yourself

Never Give Up painting

Some days when you just can’t win

Fight that feelin’ of just givin’ up

Don’t lose hope before you begin

Some days when you just can’t win

Keep tryin’ and make yourself grin

Pray for God’s strength to stand up

Some days when you just can’t win

Fight that feelin’ of just givin’ up

Unclad

Unworn Armor

We smiled, chittering and chattering

As daylight filled with bright sunshine

Spilled upon us walking sprightly.

In the distance a lion roared

But the sound did not reach

Our quiescent ears

Dulled by sleep.

Our guard down,

The lion

Strikes!

Caught

Off guard

We scramble

To stand and fight

The enemy attack.

Unprepared for battle,

Head and heart vulnerable

To fleshly fear and worldly anger,

We attempt to vanquish our beastly foe

Unprotected. We cry out for God to help us!

Reverse Etheree and Etheree

Based on 1Peter 5:8 and Ephesians 6:10-18

Job’s Question

FEAR

Afraid?

What is “the thing”?

What is the “that” in you

Which is so big it causes such

Great Fear?

Wonder if someday it suddenly

Becomes real and comes?

What will you do?

Panic?

Or Pray?

What will you do?

Will you fight or just freeze?

Will you crumble in trepidation?

I know

What i would do because it’s come.

And I am trusting God

To remove it

From me.

Job 3:25–“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”
