I got a great laugh and a lot of wisdom from these verses from Psalms 32 that I read last night…
8 The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life.
I will advise you and watch over you.
9 Do not be like a senseless horse or mule
that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control.”
Psalms 32: 8-9
Why does life just suck sometimes? Why do we feel “out of control” or like we are be dragged “kicking and screaming” from one situation to the next? In God’s own humorous way he says that it may be because we are not following his guidance…not listening to his advice…not taking the “best pathways” that he has planned for us.
There are many times in life that we are going to face difficult situations even when we are following God’s guidance. This scripture suggests though, that there are other times that we make life hard on ourselves by simply not listening and having to be “put under control” like a horse…or a mule…or in my case…A horses ass. :-) YMMV
