I met Jesus when I was 12 years old and living in Botswana. My parents had bought me my heart's desire for Christmas, a horse. Black Jack filled all my little girl dreams and had no need for Jesus. Until my horse contracted a fatal disease.
Now I had a need.
My parents organized a prayer meeting with friends, and those adults prayed for me and for Black Jack. I raced out the barn the next day and found him healed and eating hay. I knew in that moment that God is real - as in relevant. God is good. God is powerful. These three truths are the only thing I need to know in each moment. These truths frame my every moment.
See you in the round pen!
Today I love to share the Abundant Life of Jesus through words. I write and speak and constantly chew on His amazing words of love for me and for you. I am often blown away by His quiet whisper as I am with my horse. "Katy, you know the way you love that little red horse? That's just a tiny taste of the way I love you." That's it. I'm blown away.
I hope you will walk with me awhile. You can sign up for my newsletter, or check out Beautiful Brokenness and The Center for Equine Assisted Discipleship, a nonprofit dedicated to sharing the living metaphor He provides through our rescued, redeemed and reconciled horses.
