This is me….being bucked off the horse ride of life. Multiple times in the last 2 weeks I’ve been tossed. Have you ever felt this way? Like you get on the thing, riding it just like you always do, and out of no where…BAM you’re on the ground! Face first, wondering, where in the world, where in THE WORLD did that come from?
I’ll spare you the details because I really don’t think they matter much to anyone but me. It really is the ho-hums of an individuals life that belong to the individual. You may be able to empathize but you really don’t need to care about the details because they aren’t your details, they are mine. So, instead of pulling you down to the ground with me, to see what life looks like after being bucked off my horse, think about what life looks like and feels like when you are bucked off your own.
OUCH, I know, it really isn’t fun. Most often it is painful, more often then most often, it comes out of no where and catches you off guard. If we could control the bucking we would but we have no control over this thing called ‘life comin’ at ya’, nor do we have control over the people in that life that assist in the ‘life bucking’!
So, what is a daughter of the Most High King to do? 2 choices.
#1 Lay down, don’t move, forget the darn horse and by all means don’t get back on.
#2 Get up, allow the great physician to bandage your wounds, take a deep breath, take another deeper breath, grab the reigns and get back on.
I’ve tried #1 and there is not Glory there. So, I currently default to #2. Now I warn you, this #2 business can tire you out. Especially when there are multiple bucks during the week or even the DAY! BUT!!!! I love but’s (especially when I’m the one saying it and not my child) BUT, it is worth getting back onto this horse I call Life. Especially if I’m riding with my Prince!
Back on the Horse,
Jesus and Tracy
ps….sometime you do get kicked while your down, don’t let that worry you, it happens. It may be discouraging but don’t let it stop you. Prince All-in-All is waiting to help you up!
I’m sorry to say that I didn’t. they are pretty much sold out. We should do some better planning next year, don’t you think?
I think there has been MANY times I wanted to make choice #1…but I never could. I had some pretty darn good parents that instilled in me this…keep on keeping on attitude. 😉
I love you Mom! Did you find me a room in Arizona?
Tracy – I’m not sure I have ever seen you make the #1 choice. At least I don’t remember it if you did. #2 is always the best choice in life and your grandfather was a perfect example of that, wasn’t he. 🙂 Maybe not the easiest choice, but I’m sure happy you’ve never stayed on the ground. I know you have had a tough week or two, and I’m sure you will have many more in your life. Never forget that you can do “all things through Christ” who strengthens you”. I love you mostest!! Mom
