Thrilling Guest Thursday: Jeanie Kelley


Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn’t a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in.
(Matthew 7:7-8 The Message)

 
Please welcome my journaling and writing friend, Jeanie Kelley. Jeanie has a blog where she shares insights from life and the Bible studies that she enjoys online with Melissa Taylor and her Online Bible Studies.
 
Here’s a recent post from Jeanie, where she shares about her cats and perservering prayer in Cats Alive and Begging:
 
Who does not love an animal especially a cat? In our marriage, we have had a total of four cats and they can do all the craziest things to make a person stop and think. What brings to my mind is how a cat can beg so sympathetically and eat the crumbs off the floor just like a dog. In a way, our cats are like dogs. They have quirks that make them act like a dog. Take for instance, when we have sat down to a meal. We see that the cats have came to call looking for that proverbial morsel on the floor. They lick them up and are waiting enthusiastically for more. It is kind of like Oliver Twist by Dickens where he says to the cook,”Please sir,I want some more.” That is what seems is happening with our fine feline friends. They keep saying I want some more.

  1. Jeanie, thank you so much for sharing. Admittedly, I hve not had much luck w/ cats, and didnt' know where you were going w/ your very powerful point. And frankly, I do the same thing w/ our dog…..I always end up feeding him when he sits (silently begging) at my feet. But I love your analogy. Jesus rewards our persistence with answered prayer. That is a good thing for which to beg–mercy and grace from our FAther. Bless you for sharing.Lynn

  2. Jeannie …I loved your analogy too and was so encouraged when you reminded me of the story of the persistent mom and answered prayer. That is what I see for me and my prodigals.Hugs,Kelly
