Beware Of The Dog...


Living from Glory to Glory Blog


Alpha Dog
There is one in every pack!
In the hen house we call it the pecking order!

Aggression in animal or human causes distress!
I have never enjoyed bringing a new dog on the scene
 when they are larger in size!

I find myself feeling like I am not safe or comfortable.
There is an instinct that just reacts!

Just for the record, I am not a Dog Whisper...

I have noticed that even people need to be handled with caution.
So many people in the public arena seem like they are just maxed out!
Life for many of them are feeling more burdens than
 God ever intended
for them to carry!

I am so grateful to have a safe haven where I can lay my burdens down!
I heard my pastor say that these are perilous days...

Yet, we cannot be afraid or allow ourselves to be captives
 in our homes or cities!
We must pray for protection and use wisdom,
And still be about Our Father's business.
We must walk in holiness and His righteousness.
Walk in integrity and sincerity

I have noticed if I just walk in humility and love, I can feel
The atmosphere change so people do not feel challenged!

I have the desire to see the aggression dismantled,
Are we to allow this alpha spirit or attitude to control or ruin,
Our homes and church assemblies?

I do not want to be the Alpha,
To be in control over others with either my words or body language.
For I shall walk in Christ's authority in
Love and meekness...


May we look to Christ and His Word to help us to be humble,
But wise...


Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

I don't know that I've ever read a post on this topic, but oh my, you are so right. Thank you for tackling such a sensitive subject so well.

I really try to be kind to all, wear a smile even when I don't feel it and look for the pain in others. Lately I have been attacked by others, falsely accused and misunderstood. At these time, I find myself at the foot of the cross. It's a daily surrender. Thanks for sharing.

Those who are aggressive to others are "bullies".
Making our homes a safe haven is so important! Then we can venture out, putting on the full armor of God.

"Yet, we cannot be afraid or allow ourselves to be captives
in our homes or cities!
We must pray for protection and use wisdom,
And still be about Our Father's business.
We must walk in holiness and His righteousness.
Walk in integrity and sincerity"

This is what we need right now!

As owners of two Dobermans males I know all about alpha dogs!! Both dogs want to be top dog, only one can!!

We need to walk in the world as God would and know that He will protect us. I have been watching "Dispatches from the Front" about Christian missionaries going into places that do not want Christianity - brave men and women spreading God's word one person at a time. We have no idea how bad it really is - as we do live in tolerant nations - but some places in Africa will kill you if you admit you are Christian. We need to pray for their safety.

Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord! (Psalm 27:14)

I think we all know a few humans that need a little taming. Hopefully love and kindness does the trick. We all need to stop and notice the tone of voice we use and how we respond to and treat others!
hugs,
Jann
