16 Aug

While on a morning run, I captured a picture of a bull standing in front of the sunrise. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Unfortunately, he wasn't pleased. He was crying and bellowing to the cattle on the opposite side of the fence. 

Why did God stop me here? 

What's the significance? 

What you're trying to show me?  

As I continued my run, I kept thinking of this bull and what was the significance?

 It hit me, the bull was yearning to join the herd on the other side of the road. Seeing bulls call for heifers isn't new to me, so what made me stop today?

Like bulls, we long to be with others and be a part of something bigger than ourselves. I think for me I long to be closer to God, I long to be with people who to are striving to deepen their relationship with God.  I long to bring others closer to God.   

The bull wanted to be on the other side but could not because of a fence.

What is God showing me about myself?

I have a yearning to deepen my relationship with God but what is the fence I am putting up in front of me?  

What is blocking me?

While it may not be a physical fence. 

There are mental fences that I put up that prevent me from fulling experience all God has to offer.   

So maybe as you consider this, are there fences that you are putting up that prevent you from an enrich your life with Jesus Christ.

James 4:8 says “Come near to God and He will come near to you,"

Psalm 63:1 You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you,  my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land  where there is no water.Side Note 

(I know the Bull was on One Side and the heifers on the other, so maybe his yearning is different than mine )
