Bears in Your Life

Between a Rock and a . . .
Two hunters came across a bear so big that
they dropped their rifls and ran for cover.
One climbed a tree while the other hid in a
nearby cave.
The bear was in no hurry to eat, so he
sat down between the tree and the cave to
reflct on his good fortune. Suddenly, and
for no apparent reason, the hunter in the
cave came rushing out, almost ran into the
waiting bear, hesitated, and then dashed
back in again. The same thing happened a
second time.
When he emerged the third time, his
companion in the tree frantically called out,
“Woody, are you crazy? Stay in the cave until
he leaves!”
“Can’t,” panted Woody, “There’s another
bear in there.”
Do you ever feel like you are caught between a rock and a hard place? Problems,
struggles, and diffilties can come one after
another and leave us feeling overwhelmed.
At such times, remember the encouraging
messages God has given His people:
There hath no temptation taken you but such
as is common to man: but God is faithful,
who will not suffr you to be tempted above
that ye are able; but will with the temptation
also make a way to escape, that ye may be
able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13).
Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to
you (James 4:8).
Seek ye fist the kingdom of God, and his
righteousness; and all these things shall be
added unto you (Matthew 6:33).
Next time you are between two bears, remember these messages from God.
