The Boy Who Loved a Horse

A good reminder heard this a.m. via the Zig Ziglar vault (which dove-tails nicely w/a sermon from The Point Church I downloaded this past weekend regarding “making room” in your life for God’s prophetic purpose, also! click HERE for a good listen):

Do what you can with what you have –

The story was about a boy who loved and wished and prayed for a particular horse.

His dad began taking him out for work projects – every weekend, paying a little bit of cash for this tool, or that tool, a little mixing cement, etc.

As they began to build, weekend after weekend, neighbors would come by and offer help in the form of borrowed tools, or time and sweat in the project.

Eventually, a small barn by now completed, the boy came home to meet the very horse he’d loved and wished and prayed for.

Patience, perseverance, one step at a time – you can’t do it all at once, but do what you can with what you have, prayerfully keeping your end goal in sight, and God often sends things along your way to multiply your efforts!

Be blessed!


About Grace2Grow

Leah holds a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy, and considers herself a forever-student at heart, especially of the Word of God. The last few years have included a 160+ lbs weightloss, and a complete re-working of her "inner man" as she has had to journey from merely what she "knew" to putting that into "ACTION" .. a transformation that so rocked her core, she believes God's calling in her life includes a sense of "urgency," as the body of Christ is fully - knowingly or unknowingly - entrenched in These Last Days, just as Jesus prophesied. She has worked in various forms of professional Customer Service for nearly 20 years, from Mortgages and Banking to Automotive Plastics, and values most the opportunity to mediate and problem-solve. Leah has served over the years in varying roles, from Women's Bible Study Leader to Choir Director to Worship Leading to teaching Sunday School to working faithfully in the Nursery. She loves being a Wife and Aunt and Sister and Daughter and Friend, and loves to read just about anything she can put her hands on. She is always re-learning putting feet and muscle to these things, but she has learned there is incalculable value in "working the plan," and "being faithful with LITTLE so as to be entrusted with MUCH." And she is trusting her beloved God and Savior for the "much" yet to come. You can find more of her musings on her blogs at and, or follow her on Twitter at
