Every time I open an old ironing board in a hotel room, I hear the same sound and shudder. This animal was so big, the earth shook when it walked. And those teeth!
Only one thing could have made this monster more scary…
T-Rex had massive legs, a humongous head, and a gigantic tail. What was with the itty bitty arms? They say it could run fast; big deal! It couldn’t grab anything without laying on it.
So assume Mr. Rex chased a saber-toothed tiger, did a belly flop on it and grabbed it with its little arms.
The arms were too short and the head too big to get the toothy morsel in it’s mouth. Did T-Rex have to ask other prehistoric animals to hold his prey while he ate it? No wonder it’s extinct.
Many times I have found myself in a predicament where I felt,”this is the worst thing that could happen to me.” But, if I take the time get beyond my feelings and think, I soon realize it could be worse. More than that, for many people it is worse. We live in a world where the smallest inconvenience flings us into a fit of self pity, desperation and even rage.
Look for the blessing, my friends. If you feel scared and discouraged because you are being chased by a T-Rex, remember it could be worse.
It could have arms.
Question: When in a rough situation, have you ever focused on that fact that it could be worse? If so, how has that impacted your attitude? You can leave a comment by clicking here.
