My Teacher! The Master's Touch!
When I was in high school my English teacher invited the senior class over to her house to ride horses! I was excited! I loved to ride horses, had my own horse but this was special. When we got there we all got to ride. Then my teacher went out in the paddock and got this beautiful horse and gave us a demonstration of great horsemanship. She tacked up the horse, mounted the horse and then rode the horse flawlessly. The horse walked, trotted, performed at various gaits, and turned on cue. It was confident! It recognized the Masters touch.
Do you recognize the Masters touch? When Jesus cues you up do you hear Him? Are you obedient to His touch? Does He have to convince you that you have worth? He created you and He wants to use you no matter what you think your worth. Just do what He asks.
Oh by the way, my teacher got that beautiful horse absolutely free. She had taken one of her other horses to the vet and saw the horse at the clinic. She asked the vet what he was going to do with the horse and vet said it was there to be destroyed - put down. The reason? The horse was completely blind. What one person saw as useless and wanted to destroy, my teacher recognized potential and worth. Christ see's that in you!
The horse in the picture? That is a wild mustang that was adopted and trained by the young lady trick rider. Christ can use you regardless of your circumstances and background. Give Him all of your life today.
