Bunny Slippers and Blankies – Getting Victory Through Disappointment

There are days when I just want to put on my bunny slippers and snuggle with my blankie. The world is too big and ominous, my schedule too overwhelming, and my weaknesses larger than life.

But I have a God who is bigger than life and stronger in my weakness. So why do I take my disappointments to my bunny slippers instead of the Almighty God who created me?

I’m human. I sometimes forget God’s amazing power and miraculous work in my life.

Are you struggling with bunny slipper syndrome?

Time for a change of focus. Turn your eyes away from the problems, the overwhelming schedule, and your weakness. Turn your eyes to our Almighty God. He is very much alive and working in our hearts.

Isaiah 40:29-31 (NLT)

He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.

What do you do to help you shake off the bunny slipper syndrome?

  1. I start with A and find a word that describes God, then I move to B and go through the alphabet and usually by the time I get to Z (He is zealous for us) I feel better.
