Animal Tales

"We are like a whale; when you are near the top and ready to blow, that's when you get harpooned." Rick Warren

Patty Vogan highlights animals that reflect our energy state and emotional wake:

Shark Heart
You're a shark if you have a high level of energy but it’s coming out in a negative form. Simply put, you look and act like a shark! You're biting everyone’s head off no matter what they say to you. Your outlook is ugly and negative for the current state of affairs in your relationships, work and family. No one can do anything right today! Sound familiar?

Dolphin Heart
You're a dolphin if you have a high level of energy and it’s coming out in positive ways. Dolphin people are inspiring and not controlling. People want to be around you because you give encouragement and are full of enthusiasm. You create a fun atmosphere in your relationships--everyone wants to play on your wave!

Gray Whale Heart
You're a whale if you have a low level of energy and it’s coming out positive. Just like the whale, you have no teeth, so you won’t bite anyone’s head off, but you're so slow you just aren't getting much done. In fact, if you were any slower, you might be a beached whale! But at least you're happy and serene and have an overall good attitude as you cruise along the coast of life.

Jellyfish Heart
You're a jellyfish if you have a low level of energy and it’s coming out negative. You're so slow, the only thing moving you forward is the current. And you have such a negative attitude that you'll sting anything in your way. You're not productive and you are mad at everyone. Sometimes your sting is invisible and it catches people off guard and really hurts. No one wants to be around you.

Take a few minutes and ask God to reveal your heart today.

Galatians 5:16
Live freely, animated and motivated by God's Spirit. Then you won't feed the compulsions of selfishness. For there is a root of sinful self-interest in us that is at odds with a free spirit, just as the free spirit is incompatible with selfishness.
