Lesson From a Horse

This morning I went out to let the horses out of the corral. One of them had somehow gotten into the small fenced off area where we keep our riding lawn mower, 4-wheeler, etc., etc.

I just sort of stood there looking at Honey and thinking…are you daft? What is in here that you could possibly want? Then I realized it – grass, albeit a tiny amount of grass. So, this morning Tracey learned that it is true…horses DO think the grass is greener on the other side.

What did Honey learn? That striving, straining, reaching and even clamoring over a fence to get to a little “somethin, somethin” that looks good can give you a taste of it, but then it’s gone and your left stuck trying to figure out how to get out of the mess you’ve gotten yourself into.

OK, here’s where it gets deep…

Thankfully, her “master” came along, opened the gate and set her free.

What little “something, somethin” that looks good have you gotten a taste of and now you find yourself in a mess?

If you feel stuck, go to your Master and He will open the gate and set you free.

“You who sit down in the High God’s presence, spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow, Say this: “God, you’re my refuge. I trust in you and I’m safe!” That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps, shields you from deadly hazards. His huge outstretched arms protect you— under them you’re perfectly safe; his arms fend off all harm. Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night, not flying arrows in the day, Not disease that prowls through the darkness, not disaster that erupts at high noon.” Psalm 91:1-6 The Message Bible
