How much do YOU trust God?

So yesterday I rode Prince bare back. Now to full understand how amazing that is you have to know why.

Before I bought Prince the people who owned him would get on Prince bareback when they were totally drunk and try and ride Prince. Try being the key word, Prince would buck them off and keep doing that as long as they tried riding him bareback. One time this happened the guy broke his arm and leg because of the fall. So about two years ago I started sitting above Prince on the fence or the gate, not having ANY intention of getting on him but Prince would start kicking, pinning his ears etc.

So ever since then I have been playing lots of friendly game and showing Prince that he can trust me. Now I have ridden Prince bareback but when I was up there I didn't really ask him to do a lot because I wanted him to see that I wasn't going to get up there and start telling him what to do. So yesterday Prince let me get on him, he didn't pin his ears or anything and we rode around and did almost every thing that we would do if I had a saddle on him. IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!

So the reason I wrote all that was because when I woke up this morning I was thinking about it and this is what came to me.

Prince trusts me to ride him with a saddle and when we are playing on the ground, he can trust me in all those areas but not totally when it comes to me riding him bareback.

So my question to myself and all you who will read this is, how much am I/you trusting God??? are there any areas that I haven't given over to God totally and completely?

Matthew 6:25-34 says:

"“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."



  1. Lovely verse! That's a hard thing for everyone to except (to trust God completely). But if He can make the universe, He can definitly take care of our small problems!
    Congrats on riding bareback too! What a great accomplishment.

  2. Yes, it is such a great verse!!! I think I should memorize it!!! :)

    Thanks!! Prince has come so far!!
