I met Jesus when I was 12 years old and living in Botswana. My parents 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. 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, my nonprofit dedicated to sharing the living metaphor He provides through our rescued, redeemed and reconciled horses. www.TheCenterEAD.org
