Forward Always In Trusting Him
Today the act of faith was lived out before my very eyes. And it was such a random and awesome way! I was out at the Never Say Never Therapeutic Riding Center with my friend Emilia and we were working some of their horses. Mia asked me to ride her horse Max! Now let me tell you about Max. He is a big, beautiful Grey (there are no true white horses) Kentucky Mountain Horse and he is just plain grand! He honestly reminds you of Maximus from the movie tangled (that's how he got his name) He will sniff out where he is at and when he listens he cocks his head (which is by the way adorable!) But the best thing about Max is that He is completely blind! As I worked with him I noticed that he needed confidence and security. He needed guidance over obstacles and directed around the arena. At one point he didn't want to follow my direction but the other horses in the arena. I was talking to him and all of a sudden I was like "Max, you need to have faith in me, it's Forward Always In Trusting Him." And just like that all of the spiritual analogies of what Faith looks like and trusting God. To walk by Faith and not by sight. As I was traveling home, I was pouring my heart out to my Heavenly Father about the desires of my heart. And I am realizing even now about how much I don't trust Him, and not walk by faith. My new prayer is that I would walk by the faith in Jesus Christ who has everything planned out for my life!
