A True Story from my book Rescue the Stories Book One
My Cousin had a mean streak!
While job and house hunting in the 1940’s, my aunt and
uncle, along with their two children moved in with us for a few weeks.
My girl cousin was full of energy accompanied by a mean
streak! She would run, take a flying leap and jump on my brother’s back with
her legs locked around his waist.Then,
with fists flailing, she pounded on his back until he would cry for help.
Our aunt did not reprimand or punish her.In fact, my aunt thought it was funny!Because my brother had been taught not to hit
girls, he was defenseless against her!Finally, in desperation, I took him aside and reasoned with him.We agreed that, in this case, he had a
perfect right to defend himself.
The next time she pulled this stunt, my brother unexpectedly
sat down, rolled over backwards, flipped upright, and held her down until she
cried for help.She never tried that
again, at least not in our household.
Do you ever feel like life is jumping on YOUR back and
giving you a good thrashing?
Let me tell you that you have a right to defend
yourself.The Bible tells us in the book
of James, (first step) to draw near to God and He will draw near to us.
The second step is to resist the devil (and his problems
that seem to throw themselves at you) and he will flee from you.
Drawing near to God is a preventative measure!You can actually avoid the thrashing that
will roll off your back as you resist.
Then, it may just be time to stand still and allow God to
fight for you.Let Him send the devil
