20,000 Frogs!!

by on August 11, 2013

A farmer came into town and asked the owner of a restaurant if his restaurant could use 20,000 frog legs.

The restaurant owner was so shocked and asked the farmer where he would get so many frog legs. The farmer replied, “there is a pond near my house that’s full of frogs–thousands of them. They croak ALL NIGHT AND ARE ABOUT TO DRIVE ME CRAZY!!!!”

So they both made an agreement that the farmer would deliver 500 frogs to the restaurant per week.

The first week came around and the farmer showed up with two scrawny little frogs. The restaurant owner said to him, “well, where are all the frogs??” The farmer replied, “I was wrong. There were only two frogs in the pond. But they sure were making a lot of noise!!”

Next time you hear someone criticizing or making fun of you, remember it’s probably just a couple of noisy frogs!

Also, remember that problems always seem bigger in the dark. Have you ever stayed up at night worrying about things that are so overwhelming? It’s so frustrating, almost like a thousand frogs!

But don’t let people’s words of slander cause you to lose sleep. People will talk and will say whatever they want. It isn’t right but it is what it is.

Don’t allow hurtful words get into your spirit…instead allow the words of your Heavenly Father get inside of you and begin to believe them with all of your heart!

And His words to you are that HE LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY.

He loves you SO MUCH that He has literally TATTOOED YOUR NAME on the palm of His hand!!!!

Tattoo??? (I know what you’re thinking)

God doesn’t have any tattoos!! And the bible is totally against tattoos!!! Now before you shut me out, please listen. Here’s what God says in Isaiah:

“See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.” Isaiah 49:16

Now “technically” it doesn’t say “tattoo”, you’re right. However, consider this…would you think for a second that God would write YOUR NAME on His hand with something that could or that would be “erased”??

I hope not! I believe that if God the Father says, “hey, I’ve written your name on the palm of my hand!” then it’s THERE TO STAY!! (Hence the tattoo relation)

So tattoo or permanent marker (that’s really not the point) the bottom line is simple:

GOD SAYS HE HAS YOUR NAME ON HIS HAND, AND THAT HE LOVES YOU WITH AN UNCONDITIONAL, “NO STRINGS ATTACHED” KIND OF LOVE.

So why would you care about what the frogs say? 🙂

Have a blessed week!!!

Expect a Miracle,
