The other day I was out with my horse and it was really windy. On top of that, there were trucks going up the road; a random dog take himself for a walk and a bunch of other things too. Maverick was unsure about it all but as I worked with him he began to focus on me and what I was asking rather than his surroundings. But when something else 'scary' came along he started worrying again.
And so he swayed between complete trust and fear. I noticed just how much my feelings changed with his too. When he trusted me I rejoiced and when he didn't I wanted to help him overcome his fear, and return to peace.

As I thought about it the reality stabbed me- how often I've been doing that to God. Trusting some times but when I'm unsure and even frightened I waste my energy worrying. The verse that comes to mind is James 1:6 ...'For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.'

I know God used Maverick to remind me of the peace and joy that comes from complete trust in Him.

My First Post

For my first post I asked my sister to write up some questions for me to answer. So here we go!

What made you start a blog?
Well, it is something I’ve thought I’d like to do for a while and my friend encouraged me to as well. I also feel it is a way God can use me to encourage others.

What do you want people to take away from a visit to Me, My God and Maverick?
God is real. Look for Him in the small everyday things.

Is there a Bible passage or quote that sums up your blog’s purpose?
Not really that I can think of. But here is one of my favorite verses.

Psalms 73:25-26 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

I think these verses could relate to my blog though, now that I think about it. They point out God as the giver of strength and I want my blog to do that too.

How did you come up with the name?
I came up with the name by a lot of thinking and praying too. When I thought of Me, My God and Maverick I knew it was right. I put the verse ‘a threefold cord is not quickly broken’ (Ecclesiastes 4:12) with it because I want to have a threefold relationship between me, my God and my horse.

Thanks for the questions Jessica. And thank you for reading!
