The Dawghowse is a place inside the head of husband, father and Pastor Darrell Garrett. It's the place where the real me lurks.
Be forewarned: It's probably not what you expect. Sometimes it's a serious place... sometimes it's not. Sometimes my thoughts are deep... and sometimes they are just plain weird.
Welcome to my world!

Established in the Word
The following is from Jerry Savelle's daily devoiton:
“He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies” (Psalm 112:7-8).
Psalm 112 is the description of those who have their heart established in God’s Word. They are not afraid of evil tidings; they are not afraid of bad news; they are not moved by contradictory evidence; they are not moved by the woes and cares and pressures of this world. Their heart is fixed and settled trusting in the Lord.
You must realize one very important fact: the believer can live today in the midst of all the turmoil and the pressures in the world without being shaken by them. You can live with your heart established, trusting in the Lord, and not be afraid of anything.
The established heart knows that in every situation, God is more than enough, and He will meet every need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I am convinced that this is the intention of the Father God to every believer.
Paul was established in the Word, and it made him able to stand victoriously, more than a conqueror! You, too, can stand in the midst of Satan, demons, sickness, disease, and even death itself and say, “I am persuaded that nothing can separate me from the love of Christ. I am more than a conqueror in all these things!”
Confession: Father, I choose to fix my heart trusting in You. I refuse to be afraid. I refuse to fear evil tidings or bad news, but believe that You will turn every situation for my good and for Your glory.
