Let the wind of the Spirit
Blow upon you,
Set your spirit
Free to fly.
A longing in my heart began to stir. I longed go to the ocean to feel the cool sea breeze upon my face, to watch the waves crash against the rocks of the northern coast of California, and to take photos of the lighthouses near Fort Bragg. I love taking my shoes off and allowing the gentle waves wash over my feet as I walk along the shore. I wanted to paint a prophetic picture while looking at the Pacific Ocean. I decided to go, with Jesus.
All things are possible with God.

Where my hand is held
And my voice is heard
My heart is seen
And it is good.
Come, Lord Jesus

When another stallion passed by a little too close for comfort, the buckskin positioned himself in a stance that stated he would not back down. With his feet firmly planted in a wave of glory and his muscles flexed and ready for action, he stood ready to strike the first blow, if necessary. I colored his face mostly red to indicate his bold courage and placed a lightning bolt on his side to show that his power comes from his spirit. He is a peaceful guy, so green is his most dominant color. Look for hearts in his body. They indicate that love is his motivation. His mares and foals feel safe and secure with a leader they know they can depend on, not only to lead them, but to protect and defend them against intruders.
I have photographed many bands of wild horses throughout the past year. I usually like to watch the stallion in a band of wild horses as I move closer and closer to get good shots. He usually spots me first and keeps me in sight. Occasionally I’ve seen a band move behind the stallion and watch me safely from behind him. I get the best shots of free horses when several stop and look at me. Often a group of horses will feed casually and not pay any attention to me. At times I have come very close and a few have let me touch them, even pet them. When they run, I sometimes follow them. They usually do not run too far. Only once did I feel challenged, and then he gave me time to back away (see the previous blog). I consider them the perfect pet… they can take care of themselves; yet because of who they are, I receive so much pleasure just being around them. And I learn so much about Jesus.
I see Jesus in this bold stallion. He resembles a lion. I see myself too.
Jesus stood strong on my behalf when he courageously submitted to our heavenly Father before His crucifixion, “Not my will, but Thy will be done.” These powerful words have life in them. He did not back down, but obeyed the Father’s will and went to the cross. Now, because I believe Him, I have confidence that my ultimate destiny is eternal life with Him. He will protect me and bring me into glory. I believe in my loving and courageous Jesus. I am at peace because I can depend upon Him to stand.
I stand too, in faith believing and obeying my Savior. I will stand behind Him as He leads.
