The Horse in Me

Ok, most of you will think this is totally odd or you will think that now I have totally lost my mind... but please allow me to explain myself.

Do you know those games when you have to say what kind of animal you would be? Well... think about it?

A few days ago I took a walk out the back of my house to where the horses are. There's a horse farm with about 30 beautiful horses. I just stood there, watched them and thought to myself if I were an animal it surely would be a horse. The reasons herefore are things like the fact that horses live in groups, move in groups and need groups. Just like me. I need to be with people... I am a total people person. And even though they need people horses still represent freedom. And I am a kind of person who needs freedom and liberty.
And then there are other charakter traits like strength and a strong will, resilience, they use their back legs to give you a kick when you're too much .
There are cold-blooded-horses who are seen to be more laid back and "lazy", while thoroughbred horses sometimes seem to be crazy! Ha... that is just hilarious! Actually if they are cold-blooded or thoroughbred horses is estimated by their temperament...

The more I am thinking about it the more I think it is true. I am not talking about me being a horse but just looking at horses and seeing some parallels in charakter...

So if you still think I'm crazy you might actually be right, but that's ok! Maybe I am

The Glory of a heart fully alive

Today I'm not talking about my life or those things, but I'm going to share something from a book I'm reading right now "Awaking the dead" by John Eldredge and this extract I'm going to share with you just struck me.

"The heart is the connecting point, the meeting place between any tow persons. The kind of deep soul intimacy we crave with God and with others can be experienced only from the heart. We don’t want to be someone’s project; we want to be the desire of their heart. May lamented, “By worshiping efficiency, the human race has achieved the highest level of efficiency in history, but how much have we grown in love?”
We’ve done the same to our relationship with God. Christians have spent their whole lives mastering all sorts of principles, done their duty, carried on the programs of their church… and never known God intimately, heart to heart. (…)The point is not the activity – the point is intimacy with God. Attend a class and take in information; then use that information to change the way you live. None of that will bring you into intimacy with God, just as taking a course on anatomy won’t help you love your spouse. “You will find me”, God says, “when you seek me with all your heart” (Jer. 29.14).
What more can be said, what greater case could be made than this: to find God, you must look with all your heart. To remain present to God, you must remain present to your heart. To hear his voice, you must listen with your heart. To love him, you must love with all your heart. You cannot be the person God meant you to be, and you cannot live the life he meant you to live, unless you live from the heart.”

So I'm asking you, do you live with your heart, do you love with your heart? Do you desire to be in close intimacy with God?

Beyond Anything

I just cannot get the phrase "Let's challenge the status quo" out of my mind.
Let's do something that has never been done before. Let's make a difference everywhere we go. Let's leave people with an impact on their life!

As I am growing in the Lord, making steps forward I really don't want to keep standing where I am. I want to dream bigger and far beyond what I have ever dreamt of.
When I am thinking about my future and what God may have in store of me I try to not put God in a box but think outside of it.
To be honest that can be intimidating and to be even more honest I have been quite intimidated lately. Not exactly by thinking about the future, more about things that concern the present.
But I don't want to be afraid of other people, situations or the way I am. God created us the way He wanted it and He has a purpose, a plan for our lives that only we can fulfill. Nobody else can take our place in the world. God needs us here on earth as His vessels. Therefore let's be all His. Let's give our all, our everything to Him. Let's not look on situations and problems and issues. Let's look on chances, opportunities and solutions!

We are children of the living God. We belong to Him. We are sons and daughters of the King. We are princes and princesses. Therefore let us also live like the ones we are! Let's live in victory!

God is great and He has a great plan for our lives. Let's not continue standing where we are. Let's start walking! Let us be the difference and let us make the difference. Let us do things that are beyond anything that has ever done before. Let us do it for the purpose of God.

Let us challenge the status quo!
