As we were travelling through the Alberta countryside, we happened upon a herd of cattle. Now, those who know Bob well will know that he has a mean cow-moo. He couldn't resist....and the following shots are what ensued.
As I reviewed them, a saw a lesson in it about me, the crowd, and my God......
There are times when I feel fenced in....somehow locked into a life that is not very much different than the rest of the crowd or herd.
Then I hear a voice calling to me to come closer, to follow...
others start to run away...fearful, untrusting
But most are afraid to step out and away from the others....they run together
to hide, to stay within their comfort zone
to move closer to you even when the others don't.
Give me courage to stand alone, trusting in you.
I pray that I will listen when you call, and then obey.
I pray that my life would have purpose larger than me, that my deeds would have meaning deeper than the work, and that my light would so shine for you.
Be a beacon for Him today; be a blessing, my friends.
