My Dead Pet Turtle

When I was 6 years old, I had a little pet turtle in my fish tank. I liked watching it. One day, it got out of the fish tank, and it died.

But for years, though, I kept that turtle in my pocket. I kept the turtle on my desk at school, and sometimes I took it on trips. People had pens in their shirt pockets, but I had an turtle

So I carried this turtle around for a long time until one day it hit me, and I said, “What am I doing carrying around a turtle?” So I threw it away.

Well, Jesus rose from the dead. When he arose, He put off the linens, the spices, and the wrappings of death. So, the power of the resurrection is also that you have the power to put away dead things.

Paul did that; he had to take off the wrappings of his old life so he could be free. You have the same power because Jesus removed His burial wrappings so you could remove yours. Or, to say it in another way, it’s time to put away that turtle

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20

What dead things are you still carrying in your life, what old wrapping – take it off!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
