With the 4th of July just around the corner in America, we will celebrate the founding of our nation. It usually involves a fireworks show. Lately commercials for Thundershirts have been on television.
These pressure shirts are perfect for dogs that have anxiety or phobias including separation anxiety, thunderstorm nervousness, or any other loud noises. It works in the same way that you would wrap a baby in a blanket. When you wrap a crying baby with a blanket it will help them calm down. Pressure wraps work to keep your dog calm in an inexpensive and invasive way.
So do I have great news for you too! When you feel anxiety over the storms going on in your life, you can put on your very own Thundershirt, God!
“He alone is my safe place; his wraparound presence always protects me. For he is my champion defender; there is no risk of failure with God. So why would I let worry paralyze me, even though troubles multiply around me?” (Ps. 62:2 [TPT])
“God’s glory is all around me! His wraparound presence is all I need, for the Lord is my Savior, my hero, and my life giving strength.” (Ps. 62:7 [TPT])
“God, your wraparound presence is my protection and my defense. You bring victory to all who reach out to you.” (Ps. 7:10 [TPT])
“God, your wraparound presence is our defense. In your kindness look upon the faces of your anointed ones. For just one day of intimacy with you is like a thousand days of joy rolled into one!” (Ps. 84:10a [TPT])
“For the Lord God is brighter that the brilliance of a sunrise! Wrapping himself around me like a shield, he is so generous with his gifts of grace and glory. Those who walk along his paths with integrity will never lack one thing they need, for he provides it all! O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, what euphoria fills those who forever trust in you!” (Ps. 84:11-12 [TPT])
It is raining here today, and thundering, so I am going to wrap myself in God, the best Thundershirt, ever! I will snuggle into His Word and Presence, for then I will remain calm no matter what might be going on around me.
