Encouraging Bible Verses to Help Us To FROG – Fully Rely On God

 

The Little Frog - Fully Rely On GodAs a Sandwich Generation Granny Nanny of girls and BOYSMy younger grandkids loved the Adventure children BibleI fully expect to have a frog handed to me any day. When it happens, I am pretty sure I know what my reaction will be.

SCREAM AND RUN! 🙂  

In spite of that, though, I really do love those little frog critters. Particularly the Webkinz spotted frog stuffed animals, of which we have a few floating around! Why? Because they remind me to:

FULLY RELY ON GOD!

An encouraging Bible verse to remind us to FROG - Fully Rely On God

Isn't that a cute little critter? God made its eyes so awesome. And being the grandmother of boys, including twins, I will sic all the boys on it to get it if it ever jumps into my house so they can run it out into the grass where it belongs. BUT I will keep enjoying them in pictures and and as a cute Webkinz Tree Frog Plush Toy, and keep letting them remind me that, no matter where the Sandwich Generation journey of caring for elderly parents and grandchildren may lead me…

You are my strength, I sing praise to You; 

You, God, are my fortress, my God on Whom I can rely. 

Psalm 59:17 TNIV

  1. Butterflies and Frogs! Messages from HIM are everywhere eh?
    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used and recalled f.r.o.g. from my kiddos preschool days. Something so simple can sustain!

    Blessings to you! What a wonderful post! I’m blessed!
    peace,
    lori


  2. LOL – Thanks Bobbi, I have to admit, I really had a lot of fun with this particular post. Kept laughing away as I typed it. 🙂 Have a blessed Word-Filled Wednesday! 🙂


  3. Hi Lori, Thank you! And thank you for being such a great hostess for today’s Word-Filled Wednesday. It’s been such a blessing of encouragement already this morning! 🙂


  4. I absolutely love it! Being the mom of three boys, I understand the attraction between all kinds of creatures and boys. I also understand FROG, and rejoice with you that He is our strength and we can rely on Him.


  5. 🙂 🙂 🙂 After 3 daughters, when my first grandson came along it was like – I’m excited, but will it be different with boys? OH YES it’s definitely different – and exhilarating – and joy-filled – and wonderful. Just like my grandgirls only different. 🙂 Come to think of it, my girls and grandgirls have tried to give me some “interesting” goodies as well – like icky BUGS! But that’s a topic for another Word-Filled Wednesday 🙂 🙂 🙂 Have a blessed day!


  6. Ha! Love that you used a frog in that pic… ha!

  8. Hi Ginger, Thanks 🙂 I had a lot of fun with this one! 🙂


  9. Hi Heidi, Thanks for visiting back. 🙂 Have a blessed day!


  10. Love how you brought the froggie into all this…my 3 boys had a pet frog once…after mom ended up having to feed him all the time….we set him free….


  11. HA! That kind of FROG I can handle! 🙂 Great verse and pic. Thanks for sharing today. Blessings!


  12. Thanks, Amydeanne 🙂 He’s still putting a smile on my face! 🙂 🙂 🙂


  13. Very cute ~ I used to collect frogs, as I had a little one on the porch that I would pet with at leaf!


  14. My kids did that to me with the school’s pet hamster for vacation break! I was VERY glad to send the little darlin’ back home at the end of the break. 🙂 I do much better with kitty cats, in spite of being VERY allergic to them. 🙂


  15. Hi Mary, Thank you 🙂 I’m soooo with you! And isn’t he sooo cute!!! As long as I don’t have to touch him 🙂 🙂 🙂


  16. How cute, Cathy! 🙂 I had three adorable metal ones I bought from Sam’s Club. They were all sitting on two park benches. I used to decorate them for the different holidays. Then God took us on an “Abraham” trip to other states and they were pretty heavy so I gave them to a friend. They don’t get to dress up for the holidays anymore but I still get to enjoy seeing them during visits and, since they are quite heavy, I appreciate not having to pack and tote them. 🙂


  17. Hi Theresa, I definitely know how that goes! I’ve actually been able to be very active with this and the Boomers and Seniors:News You Can Use Blog Carnival but I have two other projects I’ve had to keep setting aside due to other things popping up. 🙂 Thanks so much for popping by. I really enjoyed visiting at your site. 🙂


  18. Hey Kay,

    This was just adorable. I know all about frogs and boys!!

    Hope your day was blessed~


  19. i’m not really fond of frogs but those pink eyes sure look nice. thank God we can rely on Him 100%. He is our strength indeed. ☺


  20. Very cute! I love the concept of Frog! And yes, God created its eyes so awesome.


  21. Thanks for stopping by to comment at The Homeschool Desk. Enjoy gardening with your grandkids!

    My son would love this, he LOVES frogs! When we lived in Arkansas, we got those little green frogs in our house all the time! The girls would scream, and my son and I would have to run around trying to capture them to set them free outside! lol


  22. WOW JODI! I’m so impressed that you would help him! 🙂 Although, in my defense, we used to have these adorable (if I didn’t have to touch them 🙂 ) frogs about the size of a quarter. Sometimes they would get in the house and I would be fairly good – not screeching too much, and use a shovel or something to gently lift them and carry them outside. 🙂 🙂 🙂


  23. I’ve never heard that particular acronymn before – I love it!
    My kiddos haven’t gotten into the frog stage yet, thankfully! Bugs yes, frogs no. (seems that the two may contradict each other?). And I have a boy and a girl, but I won’t discount the girl getting into all that stereotypically boys stuff!
    Thanks so much for the uplifting words. I’ll definitely be browsing your site to see what other great nuggets you have on here!
