As most of you know I had a horse back accident, on one of our brokest horses. Let me rephrase, I had a freak horse wreck with one of our nicest horses. Long story short I broke my femur.
He caught a lot of back lash from the whole ordeal. Even a new nick name “Femur”.
It didn’t really bother me at first. It’s been 3 months since our mishap and the name still comes up.
This morning I was loving him and I thought what if we named all our horses by what they have done wrong. Oh we call him “Run off ” sometimes even “Bite ya” on a bad day “Flip over”.
I kept soaking it in. Cracking myself up with the things I had came up with. Then I got to thinking about how often we call people by their mistakes. Oh that’s ol “Gossip” she’s dating “Liar” which is a upgrade from “Cheater”.
My spirit convicted me because how often do we look at some one and our mind immediately calls them by their sins and mistakes.
It kinda made my heart stop. How awful are we for doing that?! I have made plenty of mistakes, publicly. I’m so glad 9 times out of 10 I’m the only person that remembers.
But I’m thankful that God knows all my sins, all my mistakes, all my short comings and every time I have a not so Christian like break down. In all my mess he still calls me by my name.
Loved. Chosen. Beautiful. Child of the one true King.
remember to whom you belong and what he calls you.
