Twin Mules, Nell 'n Pearl

Daddy used ta' live in a house that had a railroad track in front of tha' house and a track in tha' back of tha' house. Aunt Beat said they never knew what a good nite sleep was. They had twin mules, Nell 'n Pearl. They were good mules n' didn't mind hard work. But if they got spooked, watch out! They'd take off runnin'!

One day Daddy was walkin' between Nell 'n Pearl plowin' tha' field. A storm came up 'n a clap of thunder spooked 'em. Nell 'n Pearl took off runnin' with Daddy hangin' on best he could. When they got ta' tha' ditch, Nell 'n Pearl came to a dead stop throwin' Daddy inta' a mud hole.

We don't know what kind of 'dead stops' life'll bring us. But we do know who's in control 'n who can help us get out of tha' mud hole.

James 4:14 Whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 

What kind of 'mud hole' are ya' in?
Do ya' fully trust in God?
Are ya' lettin' God be in control?

Lord, give us your wisdom ta' face whatever troubles we have. Give us strength ta' let you be in control. In tha' name of Jesus, amen.

  1. Wonderful story illustration! I'm stuck in a few right now. Waiting on God to direct me. In two of them, I have already received my marching orders and I'm beginning to see the light coming out of that mud hole.
