God’s control shown in emergency

Recently, I visited my daughter and had the privilege of helping her as she went about her daily work taking care of horses on a large property. I was very grateful to be able to be with my daughter and to assist her with chores, such as opening gates and filling buckets. 

We began this particular day by listening to the weekly Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly. Then, one of the jobs that needed to be completed was loading horses into a large stock trailer so they could be brought to a central location to have their hooves trimmed. The horses were easily caught and brought to the trailer. The first three loaded beautifully. Loading horses into a stock trailer is a little different than loading them into a regular horse trailer, because it requires the handler to be in the trailer to correctly load and position the horses. I was helping by shutting the back door so the horses couldn’t back out. 

Just as the fourth horse was loaded, he was startled. He panicked, pulled back, reared, and fell down. He plunged into my daughter and knocked her to the ground. At first I was stunned, but then a strong feeling of Love, God, surrounding us all just embraced me. I knew that God is “a very present help in trouble” (Psalms 46:1) and that He was, and always will be, in control.
