Hi, I'm Joni. And back when I was a teenager, I had this big thoroughbred that I named St. Augustine (I used to call him Augie for short) and this horse loved to jump fences no matter how high they were or how complicated the course of hurdles. You know, for us humans, the path of life set before us often seems like a confusing maze of difficult fences we are expected to hurdle. And when we come across those obstacles, we sometimes doubt God’s control over our lives. But First Peter chapter 4 says, "Those who suffer according to God's will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good." Friend, don't worry about the height of those hurdles God expects you to overcome, just continue to do good. The One who is riding out your destiny is holding the reins .... Let him guide you through the course set before you, no matter how complicated life gets.
