Lungeing horse. Life lessons.

Sharing some Life lessons Learned from Horses with this week with a group of camp staff and teens.

I asked -What re you revolving around? What gives you identity, security, significance?

I’ve lunged what seems like a million horses. Just when you think you’re the master lunger, one’ll throw you a curve ball. Leaving its orbit to take off with you hanging on for dear life, your own strides getting longer and longer…. A 120 lb girl is not a reliable anchor for a 1000lb horse.

What are you revolving around? What consumes most of your time and thoughts?

The next weekend. ..The next video game level.

 Gaining followers… Gaining trophies.

Turning heads… Turning a profit.

What are you revolving around?  It better be something that’ll anchor you in the hurts of life. Something that we’ll never lose when we lose a job, lose a loved one or lose a reputation.

He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.
Jim Elliot

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. The Bible
