Look The Horse Square In The Eye.

Were on the trail again

My God Dog Benji
My God Dog Benji

Speak Truth

The tranquil blue sky was endless and there was not a cloud in sight. The glistening leaves of reds, golds, yellow's and orange's seemed to dance ever so slightly in the soft warm breeze. I could feel the warmth of the sun on my shoulders and neck. I felt tranquil inside and I sang, Glory to God.

Other then Rocco my daughter's one year old dog and my 'ole' guy Benji we were the only ones on the trail. Rocco usually ran yards ahead of me only to stop like a faithful friend to see if I was coming his direction. Then yards behind me Benji was smelling then marking his territory. Benji could barely hear when I called but caught up once he noticed we were way ahead of him. They were in there element. No leash and on an adventure. I suppose we all were. I had yet to experience the treat I was in for.

I felt as if I were in bliss on this Sunday morning. The weather was perfect and I had a sense of belonging and well being in knowing who I was. Most of my life I struggled inside to become who I was going to be and never quite found that little girl. It was only when I invited Christ inside to live in my heart did I start to discover me. I just had a birthday. Lets just say I am in my 50's. There is a part of me that is still fleshly and chooses not to reveal the number. I am so vain. I laugh at myself, grateful I am not all serious.

My precious daughters cooked me my favorite meal of crab legs and steak. Along with my new grand son they had a special party for me. We then watched a funny movie and I laughed so hard. The girls did not think it to be that funny. I guess I related on another level at the 'cocky young man' trying to be all it in the movie. I can relate to trying to be all it. He did not quite pass the test. In fact I had not laughed that hard in a long time. Here I am this age and I have less money then I have ever had but more joy then I ever imagined.

In God's World I rest assured on HIS promises. In days past this would really frighten me. In this day this could really frighten me but I know to face it head on with Jesus. I stand on the Rock of Jesus Christ and HIS promises or I would be off the deep end. There is no medical insurance, no guaranteed income, lost wages a husband detached until November. The situation has been like this for months and months and GOD is true in His promises. 'My God shall supply all your needs according to the riches and Glory of Christ Jesus'

I see the horse pasture up ahead. Oh what a sight it is. The ranch home in the background with lush fall foliage all around and a pumpkin patch growing in the background is breathtaking. The trees coming up to the pasture are a brilliant, fiery red glow and I think of the Blood of Jesus who went to the cross for you, for me. How could one not believe when the beauty all around is evident it came from seed just as we did. Oh my, the enemy does have HIS hands on those. May they be rescued, sweet Jesus.

I see Rocco sit by the pasture rather then in the pasture. Most days we walk up here he will go play with the horses like they are toys. Today he has this bone that is long and skinny. He is a happy boy and so content to sit on the lush green grass and munch his prize he discovered along the way. I want to take it away but I am a bit apprehensive to touch and he will not be happy to part with this trophy. He finds the oddest things. I chuckle. Along comes the little Benji. Wagging his old tail. Happy and content in most situations. My GOD dog, I call Benji. God spelled backwards. He has been by my side though the thick and thin. The trials and tribs and the rainbows and calm. I prayed for a dog GOD wanted me to have and who did I find at the shelter that day so many years ago? The Benji.

I lean on the fence and thank GOD. I am so thankful. I recall the very words I wrote not long ago. 'After the storm is always a calm. God will pull us to our feet. On every path there is a Blessing. It is necessary and beautiful to go through trials. When emotions seem out of control and thoughts run ramped I can halt and like 'looking a horse square in the eye' rebuke the devour. I can step up and turn off the switch to how I feel and live in the solution of GODS promises or I can turn up the switch and let the enemy play havoc or run ramped trying to go figure'. I only hope that during the next storm I will stand on GODS word and not waiver. It avails little to the human emotion and psyche to let the flesh determine who I am.

Children of GOD we belong to the King of Kings. He is coming back. It is closer to HIS return, it is not farther. It is written. If you are not hearing this in your church please hear it. We are commissioned to share the good news of salvation and eternal life. I am so wimpy in my own flesh but with Christ I am strengthened. The Holy Spirit will tell us what to say and lead us on our path. As I get older and closer to heavens gates I long to seek more and be more for HIM that gives life. TO speak boldly scripture. " I am a child of GOD, no weapon formed against me shall prosper'

I read a hub the other day on why Christians were despised. The main point I got was "Christians shoveled how to live, but did not walk the talk" I am here to say, if a person claims to be a believer and leaves you with this effect then perhaps you are being decieved. The enemy known as Satan does not want you to love Jesus because God loves HIS creation. The Devil is working it to pull you away from love. God wants no one to perish. This person is not a true Christian because if we love Christ we long to be more like him. It is no wonder you run the other way. Do not be foolded because Jesus is the way truth and life. If you look outside it is evedent there is no other way. The times we live in are perilous and ever changing in HIGHER places, meaning government and CHURCH. The government does not know if they are coming or going. The lies are so thick they do not know which one they should quote this time. They are getting tongue twitsted and tongue tied. Our own people are against each other. DIvision in government and division in the church. Is this from GOD? No this is from the enemy that wants you to not believe in GOD.

To love Jesus is a choice. He gave us free will. Many will twist the truth of scripture for gain. As a believer it is my respnsibility to Christ to use discernment and share the message of salvation and abundant life. I am hands and feet of the true savior Jesus Christ. It is my part to speak truth even if one might be offended. This for me is seed planting. We have a Helper 'The Holy Spirit' to help us with our words. One day but for the Grace of GOD you may recall what a 'Christian' shared with you. Many in the world may throw stones at the believer but a true Christian will be persecuted for the name of JESUS Christ. You will know them by thier fruits. If someone is pounding on you the message to give and give more or in your church not opening the BIBLE then just maybe you should walk.

Life is short, when we are called out of here the Spirit will part the body and go to the light or the dark. Just say you do not beleive and I am right. Which would you rather do? Deny the truth or believe and take a risk that Jesus could change your blissful life or wonder if you die where do you go for sure?? Many will choose to keep on the blinders on and I am so sorry for them. Not that I am some super power or super woman. I am a Child of GOD. That means I have an inheretence. I get Paradise and eternal life with Jesus in Heaven because He loved me first, I love and beliveve in HIM. I am forever thankful because this sinner does make errors and will make errors. I am not perfect, there is only one perfect.

I am forgiven. I was told about Jesus of Nazaruth who died and rose for me, for you so I could grow up and grow in love for HIM. This is the desire of my heart for those that do not believe. I am a Christian. I will look anyone in the eye and say,' I Believe.' This does not mean I pound you. I will just pray for those that are lost and choose to stay that way. I was once lost then found.

So on the walk. I thought about this hub. I stand my ground for Jesus. I have tears now because I am so grateful. He will never leave nor forsake His children. This is so huge. He has Blessings for us that only come in knowing Christ. Why would someone not want this? It makes me feel sad. I know many.

I pet the horse that is always here but his buddy is not. There are two that live here. This horse just stays by me. SO I talk to him and ask him where his friend is. He lets me hug him. I am not a big horse person. Not that I would not be. A little pet here and a few carrots, is my horse knowledge. I spend an hour with the horse, Benji is sleeping on the grass and Rocco loving the bone that is only 8 inches long by now. I just pet and talk. I am grateful no one is watching that I know of (other then GOD) I get my camera phone. I ask the horse to take a photo with me. It is hard to get a lopsided, right side up picture. The horse is so patient. I had to take several pictures. He let me look him, 'square in the eye'.

SO the essence of the story is Trust In GOD with all your heart, soul and mind. DO not toss away what you could have today. Tommorrow may not come. If you do not know him, make the choice for the Light. A light on your path. Jesus Christ.

In closing I am headed for a walk. I have apples. I hope his buddy is with him. My Love to you in HIS name, Jesus Christ. Glory to GOD. For Reference John 3:16.

Take five and enjoy the video I left for you. 'Holding Your Hand'.( Take HIS Hand it is FREE)

Love You, Skye

Hi skye2day. Perfect word pictures of your doggies, since I know them personally. The Lord gave me a dream three times. Each dream being the same...at least 50 beautiful horses were running in a rich green pature, as I sailed in the sky viewing the horses from the earh above, they were running gracefully, swiftly, and poetically from above the earth. The message for me at the time; I was to rely on Gods Strength, (as I am weak but the spirit is srong)! Your post brought back sweet memories and I could actually sense the presense of the Holy Spirit. Your message was perfect timing (as always) and I so appreciate your diligence to persevere. I can tell you have some awesome friends. Beautifully written my friend. Love always, Raine

I always enjoy reading your hubs. You are one of the most sincere and true Christians I know. You are busy with God, praising Him for all to see... Just ‘looking’ at you inspires one to become like you – filled wit the joy and peace of God. Keep on writing, my friend – it is obvious that God is using you to touch the hearts of many. Take care of yourself, for you are precious!

The best things in life are truly free. The love of God. A quiet walk. Love of family and friends. I've thought about this alot. If I were to lose everything except for what I just mentioned, I would still have all I need. Your testimony is more powerful than that of someone who is blessed with worldly wealth. It shouts out for the masses "HE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH!" I pray that our God shall supply all your needs. Both for you and judicastro!


tinamarie9884 5 years ago

Skye, I was very moved by your personal thoughts and sharing them with us. the video, Holding your hand was beautiful just like you, by the time it was over I had to wipe my eyes. The song really touched my Heart for many reasons. You, are so very blessed and yes, it is about GOD. My prayers will continue to go out to you and all of your family.

Skye your write just so beautifully, you know we are much the same as Rocco and Benji.

Jesus walks ahead of us and He is looking all the time to see if we are following Him, then as we are following we seem to get side tract and He is calling to us this way, and we hurry up to be beside Him once more.

God Loves you

What a wonderful hub. I couldn't sleep, fell asleep early in the evening and woke suddenly so I came in to catch up on some reading. I'm glad I chose yours to read first. We are pretty much in the same boat financially speaking and I have found myself trying to figure out how we are going to take care of all that needs to be met the first of the month-just the bare necessities now-but still the struggle. Thank you for the sweet reminder that He truly does supply ALL our needs. We so need each other to hold each others arms up when one of us grows weary. Thanks for being here for me and I pray to be there for you when you need a friend to lean on.

love and hugs dear girl

Jbird 5 years ago

This reminds me of something I remember you saying about your mother, my grandmother... That you can find something to be grateful about every minute of every day. And one of the many things to be grateful for this time of year, is the unmistakable evidence of God all around us. Or, as you have put it, the beauty all around is evidence. I too am often brought to tears while taking God's awesome creations all around us.

    Voted up and shared!
