Kitty under the blanket

One recent afternoon, I heard our little kitty meowing. I spent a good five minutes looking for him.

a kitty getting out from under a blanketFinally, I discovered he was under a blanket in a bedroom.

He’s strong enough to get out from under that lightweight blanket, but he just couldn’t find his way.

So I gladly and quickly lifted the corner of the blanket and restored him to freedom.

That’s just like what God does for us sometimes. We may be under the weight of a situation we can’t handle. We’re crying out, desperately wanting out. And God lifts the corner of our blanket and lets us out.
