Scripture: “just as he chose us in Him before the foundation of the world…”
Ephesians 1:4 NKJV
Introduction to my first horse
Lady, my first horse, was a beautiful part Quarter horse Strawberry Roan foaled probably on a farm in Michigan. Her Sire (father) and Dam (mother) was both unknown. She had no impressive pedigree. Not much was known about her early years and her upbringing but two things really stood out about her. She was a beautiful horse and very gentle and laid back with children. However, when an adult or experienced rider climbed on her back, she knew. She was ready for action. Now Lady didn’t have much choice about her pedigree or her looks. Those were hers whether she liked it or not. Her gentle and laid back attitude with children and her change of attitude with adults she chose.
I too did not have any choice on my “pedigree” but as I look over my life I have had the choice about my attitude and spirit as I face the challenges of each day. Each day as I start it with my devotions I pray that the day will belong to my Savior and that I will be His instrument through it.
Prayer Thought: Lord help me to choose the attitudes and spirit that you want me to use this day. Keep me focused where you want me to go each day of this new year.
