Horseshoes and Handgrenades

A horse is a magnificent and beautiful animal. While they are a powerful machine, they are quite sensitive and have feelings.

My daughter does English Horseback riding. Our pony Alice is an experienced jumper and loves it like a kid on a playground. She is a true Champion in some events.

Riding isn’t easy. It takes hours of consistent practice and repetition for the horse to become disciplined and respond to rider commands.

We too are a lot like wild, untrained horses. I want to do what I want to, when I want to. Our culture encourages independence…you don’t need anyone…it’s all about you.

God desires to be our trainer. He wants to strengthen and develop us to survive, perform, serve, and live life abundantly. We are Sheep in need of a Shepherd and a Horse in need of a Trainer. The journey is worth the effort.
