For anyone who has been reading this blog for a while, you might remember a post I did last September about my neighbor's dog. If you haven't read it or don't remember it, you can read it here.....Love Your Neighbor's Dog. Back then, I thought I had a problem. I wish this one was that simple.
Well, here is an update about the house next door. Those people moved out of the house but didn't sell it. They are renting the house to a young couple with two young children. The new people living there have now gotten some dogs and to me they look like pit bulls. I have heard too many stories of pit bulls attacking people or other animals, so I am not happy about this. I know that I shouldn't be living in fear, though I also believe that fear is not all bad. We need a certain amount of fear to keep us safe from harm, but I think my fear of vicious dogs goes beyond that. I am praying a lot about this situation. There are also other things I see going on at this house next door that have me concerned. I'm really having to trust God to help me with all this. I've noticed that when someone else is going through a difficult situation, it's so much easier for me to tell them to trust in God than it is for me to actually trust God when I'm going through a difficult situation.
Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You. Psalm 56:3
