In one exciting night, Mr. Lew Sterrett trained an unbroken, 2 year old mare and finally rode her. It was the first time she had been ridden, having come from a winter of roaming free in a pasture.
As he worked with the horse- at first just trying to get her to turn her head and face him with both eyes, he talked about our relationship with the Lord and how people- like the mare- are untrained and too busy "doing" to hear God's still small voice.
We are called "human beings" not "human doings" after all! Good point.
Sometimes we get so busy we forget to just "be" for a moment.
She kept deciding to do her own thing and run away (as far as she could in the confines of the pen) from Mr. Sterrett.
He put the rope over her eyes to see if she would trust him. After this he had her walk around and follow him by listening to his voice. Then after he took the rope off she started following him around all by herself. The way we should hunger for God so much that we can not afford to let Him out of our sight.
