The hope began in the heart of a grace filled and loving God who had a plan for a rebellious girl. Although the girl lived most of her life apart from God, He continued to pursue her with His supernatural love and never gave up. God wanted the girl to know Him and to know the hope found in a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. He wanted to save her life. And He did.
God gave this girl a small, gentle horse with a very short tail. The girl and the horse became very close friends. Unknown to the girl, God was engineering His purpose for her life and knitting together all the people, skills, education, horse knowledge and children experiences that He had given her. Today, this girl continues to live a thousand years each day with the Lord because of His overflowing grace and truth. To this day, God’s unconditional love, faithfulness and sovereignty “leads the girl beside quiet waters and restores her soul”. (Psalm 23: 2-3)
