|Kiah wearing her Gentle Leader|
I started praying, "God, please be my Gentle Leader! I want you to control my head so that you are in control of ALL of me." See I started to realize that this whole thing called life... A lot of it is a head game... If Satan can get into your head and make you worry, doubt, or fear... If you give just an INCH of your brain to worry, doubt, or fear... It is over! The worry, doubt and fear control you. However, if you give God control over every inch of your brain, peace flows in... the peace that passes all understanding.
Now according to my cousin (and she hasn't been wrong so far), after a while Kiah will get so used to the Gentle Leader not allowing her to pull that she will forget to pull without the Gentle Leader and eventually she will even walk by my side without a leash. We'll see about that.
But, I think that happens with God too.... I think initially we might pull and tug at our Gentle Leader... I think initially we have to surrender to Him over and over and over again.... but after awhile, we get used to it... we stop even trying to pull away towards worry, doubt and fear. We stop even trying to leave His side when the going gets tough. We just surrender and the peace floods in.
