How is your future looking?
Scripture: “For surely there is a hereafter, and your hope will not be cut off.” Proverbs 23:18
I am not sure what the future for Amos the horse I ride is. I know that he has to be cared for as long as he is alive and that includes many more trail rides. His health is good even as he is starting to approach his senior years. However, someday he is going to die and be buried without much fanfare. Oh I will miss him and think of the good times we had, but basically, unless God has some other plan for animals, Amos’ usefulness is over. In fact, if I am still riding horses when that day comes I will just get another horse.
Not so for you and I. God’s ultimate plan for us is still somewhat of a mystery. This time on earth is short compared to our time in eternity. I do hope that horses are part of the eternity picture but if not I know that my Savior has great plans for us. One thing is certain; we shall “worship the King of Kings.” I am excited about God’s plan for us and I am planning to be there. How about you? Maybe we can even go on a trail ride together. See you later.
Prayer Thought: I am thankful for your Word, which promises a future with you Lord.
