Hope For Your Challenges

“My horse would be further along with another rider” is a sentiment I hear all too often from clients and friends.  This thought tends to coexist with the belief that their horse would have a better life with a better rider.  This grieves me because the truth is, horses don’t care if they’re at training level or FEI so long as their needs are being met and they’re stewarded with love and respect.  Through the Lord’s divine providence, He brought you and your horse together to learn, grow and enjoy each other richly.  Please know that the Lord who created you both and knows you best, deeply desires to be invited into your relationship.  There are no challenges that He does not have a solution for.  The Lord never intrudes where He’s not invited, so I encourage you to speak with Him daily and make your concerns known.  If this is new territory for you, feel free to contact me and I would be honored to help.  The Lord’s answer to prayer can come in many forms.  A new idea may drop into your thinking, a new resource may become available or someone you had not thought of, comes alongside to help.  I find it encouraging to keep a prayer journal where I write down my challenges and leave space for recording the Lord’s solutions.  I go back to my journals when I feel discouraged so I can be reminded of His faithfulness.  Whether for a season of time or a lifelong partnership, your horse is exactly where he belongs.  Be blessed my friends and enjoy your journey!  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.  Proverbs 3:5-6
