"Horses Dream Of Being Trained The Way A Donkey Demands To Be Trained" Melody Johnson

Staying Focused On What Matters – Trust GOD for everything


Seems our world spins too fast and well it is easy to lose sight of what is the most important, specifically what’s the most important to each of us humans.   GOD made each of us unique with gifts and talents custom-made to fit into the part of the world we are living in. GOD does not make any mistakes.

I have learned to stay focused on what matters and trust GOD for everything as GOD is the great I am, the beginning and end, GOD knows the end of the story.  GOD knows what we will do under pressure, how we will act, what we need, what we don’t need.  The bible says GOD will never, never, never leave or forsake his children never.  GOD loves each of his children so very much enough to do whatsoever we choose to (free will) but what we do with free will has consequences.

When you get your picture taken do you smile a real smile or a camera smile?

Hmm, perhaps you are wondering what in the world I am talking about?   When my husband rides his motorcycle he has a real smile on it’s a deep smile one that I enjoy watching and this feeling of joy stays with him for a good couple of days.  Before the accident when I would ride my horse and our Mammoth donkey my face would hurt from smiling as well this was a real smile a smile that released wonderful endorphins into my brain, body and soul.

Perhaps you have not done the special thing that makes you smile a real smile in a really long time.  I challenge you to work on this as only you can make yourself smile the real smile as guess what you are the person living inside the body, soul and mind.  Step out and do your best to enjoy your life as each day is indeed a gift from GOD.

The photo above is me riding my horse Miss Lily in our newly created arena a dream I had since I was a young girl.  The photo was taken shortly before the semi truck accident almost three years now since I have been able to ride my horse.  I continue to pray GOD will heal my body and I will ride again and one day that GOD will put that smile back on my face.  In the meantime I live my life grateful for every blessing GOD has given me and my family.  I live my life in deep gratitude to GOD as GOD is the one who created the miracle to let me live, let me keep my legs and brain.  GOD is amazing!

Prayer For Depression:

I WAITED patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry.  He drew me up out of a horrible pit (a pit of tumult and destruction), out of the miry clay froth and slime, and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings. And He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our GOD. PSLAM 40:1-3  The Secret Power Of Speaking GOD’s Word book by Joyce Meyer.

Renewing our mind, select We must forgive our enemies (those who betray us, hurt us) we must let GOD work in all areas of our lives to be free to create and enjoy this fragile thing called life.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
