On the countryside, there were two horses in a field. At first, when looked from a distance, they look like any ordinary horse.
But if you go closer and look at one of the horse, it is quite interesting to know that one of the horse is Blind…
As an owner, the first thing can be done to him is to put him down. But his owner has chosen not to and also has made him a safe and comfortable barn to live in.
This alone is a pretty astonishing and inspiring story.
But if one visits the barn and stands nearby, he will hear the sound of a bell. It comes from a small, copper-colored bell attached to the horse’s halter of a smaller horse in the barn.
It helps the blind horse who has become his friend to know where the other horse is, so he can stay near and close.
As one notices these two friends. It is quite amusing that the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse and that the blind horse listens for the bell and then slowly walk to where the other horse is, trusting he will not be led awry.
Every evening, before going back to the shelter, the horse with the bell occasionally stops and wait for the blind horse to hear the bell and follow him to the shelter. They are best friends now.
Moral of the story:
Through these short Inspirational horse stories, we want to convey the message. Is God with me?
Similar to the owners of these two horses, God does not just throw us away when we are not perfect. Or when we have problems or challenges.
He guards us, takes care of us and even brings people into our lives to support us when we are in need.
Can we challenge ourselves to be that helper horse, this week? The one who comes along side one who is broken, offering hope. I know there are days when we feel like we want to be helped for a change. Why do I always have to be the one to offer encouragement? I have found that when I take the opportunity to come along side someone, even if it is just for a few moments, it not only blesses them, but blesses me.
