Oh boy do I understand the horse who must be controlled by a bit and bridle...we (DAD) have one (Misun which is Little Brother in Lakota Sioux) right now that he insists on "breaking" to be able to be ridden. The only problem is I dislike the horse because it is mean because it enjoys being mean. It would rather FIGHT against you than submit and enjoy the rewards.
How many times are we like that. We fight against what we know is actually good for us because we think we know better and that our way will ensure that positive outcome. Only it never happens the way we saw it happening. That is because God saw that "car coming out of no where" that "wrecked" our plans.
I love that I can hide in God's arms and rest from troubles. Some people may think or even say aloud that I am being weak and running away but if it keeps me safe, then it is better for me.
I pray that your day finds you delivered from troubles and strife that are clouding your judgement. I pray you find God's counsel and submit to His plans.
Love you all!
