The Great Cat & Mouse Game

Have you ever watched a cat play with a mouse.  They bat it around with their paws.  They let it run just far enough that it thinks it has made a way of escape – only to find itself being pulled by the tail back to its captor.  They carry it around – drop it – pick it back up again.  They pretend to ignore it – then pounce just as it tries to make a run for it.

It’s a pretty entertaining show….for everyone but the mouse.

Sometimes the walk of faith feels like this to me.  I’m knocked around – toyed with – oblivious to the size and true power of that which holds me – and dangerously safe unless the cat gets carried away.

Good thing I trust the cat.

I've been in student ministry nearly 30 years…which generally just confirms how much I still don't know. Some days I'm the pizza-eating, over-responding, teaching-on-the-fly, desperate-for-volunteers, frustrated-with-co-workers youth leader that we all are. And sometimes…I knock it out of the park. I'm everywhere on social media that you are!
