Traveling season has begun.
As we head off to vacations, dinners and the rest let us call to mind our Lord.
O Almighty and merciful God, who hast commissioned Thy angels to guide and protect us, command them to be our assiduous companions from our setting out until our return; to clothe us with their invisible protection; to keep from us all danger of collision, of fire, of explosion, of fall and bruises, and finally, having preserved us from all evil, and especially from sin, to guide us to our heavenly home.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

This week a popular cartoon, "Family Guy" killed off a beloved pet named Brian in a sobering moment on an otherwise over the top tv show.
One pastor has taken this moment to explain the death of a pet. Here is what he had to say:
I must admit I cannot recount the number of times when, as a pastor of more than two decades and as a public and media personality since, I have been approached by an adult or child — eyes filled with questions — who wanted to ask me very sincerely if I believed their pets would go to Heaven. I often noted the apprehension on their faces, as if they feared this man who typically speaks out on "more important issues" like social or world events would find their questions trivial, especially in light of increasing human challenges facing people around the world.
Of course, most of these dear people were unaware of how often this question has come up for me and other Bible expositors. In fact, it seems to be one of the biggest secrets in Christianity: that our Western mindset has made it difficult to discuss what people in other countries as well as theologians down through time believed to be an important and theological question.
Most are also usually unaware that the Bible itself has some important things to say about the issue, and that many celebrated theologians and philosophers — past and present — concluded a long time ago based on these Scriptures that our pets most likely will be in Heaven.

The object of these positive thinking exercises is to ensure that you train the most powerful muscle in your body: your brain.
Here is your affirmation for today which can help keep your day in alignment with your desire to accept fear as only a feeling, understanding that it cannot hold you back.

If I asked, "Whom do you trust the most?" most people would think of some other human being they know. Few would automatically respond, "God. I trust Him the most."
Psalm To Recognize A Friend
The problem we have is that when faced with situations we fear, most turn to other people for help.
I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
You and I are living in the flesh in this earth age, and we have all the troubles and fears that go along with the flesh age. However, even though we are living in these flesh bodies, Father has given us the power over those things that would bother you. He has placed an angel of God over you, watching you to protect you from those things that would come against you. God will deliver you from all your fears when you place your trust in Him.
