Notes

“When you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.”
Oswald Chambers
“BLUE BOY”
Sometimes saying goodbyes are happy and sometimes saying goodbye brings fear into our lives. A few years back I had a pretty dapple-gray horse, but pretty was the only good thing you could say about that horse. The horse, “Blue boy”, would run full-tilt backwards out of a trailer, he was a magnet to barb wire, rearing up was a common occurrence, and the list could go on for days! Truly it was an adventure every time you threw a leg over ol’ Blue.
Sometimes saying goodbyes are happy and sometimes it brings fear into our lives. A few years back I had a pretty dapple-gray horse, but pretty was the only good thing you could say about that horse. The horse, “Blue boy”, would run full-tilt backwards out of a trailer, he was a magnet to barb wire, rearing up was a common occurrence, and the list could go on for days! Truly it was an adventure every time you threw a leg over ol’ Blue.
One very fine day a man and his wife offered me 10 round bales of costal hay for the horse. Before the couple could change their mind ol’ Blue was in their trailer and on his way to a new home. Getting rid of Blue Boy was a joyous occasion and a happy goodbye, but some goodbyes are not that easy.
I wonder how Mary, the mother of Jesus felt, when she saw Jesus walk out their door for the final time to fulfill God’s plan. Did she fear the loss of her son? Did she rejoice in his service to God? As the crucifixion became imminent did Mary fear for her son’s life or did she fear the soon to be void in her heart? I really don’t know how she felt nor does anyone else for that matter. But one thing is for sure the fear of loss, the pain and anguish of the permanent goodbye is real and can only be comforted by our Heavenly Father.
Everyone one has the emotion of fear built-in, so the question is not whether you will fear but rather who or what will you fear? As for this hard headed old cowboy I will fear the Lord our God.
“The fear of the LORD is where wisdom begins, and knowing holiness demonstrates understanding.”
