Anticipation—Can I Trust?
September is here, and the anticipation is mounting! As you know, I’m Harvey, the imaginary guide for this adventure in obtaining a guide dog from Guide Dogs for the Blind for Kathy. Knowing that it’s only about six weeks away for her training to begin, really intensifies the anticipation.
Guide Dogs for the Blind is an outstanding organization that has been around for over 75 years in helping those who are blind and visually impaired. They know exactly what to do to match a highly trained dog with the needs of the recipient. They purposely don’t tell the client ahead of time what breed the dog will be, whether it’s male or female or even what color its fur may be.
What about me?
I think I’m the chosen one!
You know I’m the cutest one!
So Guide Dogs for the Blind tells Kathy, “Trust us. We’ll make wise decisions about the dog and the training to benefit you and your situation.”
Trust Your Guide
One important piece of advice they give is, “Trust your guide. Let it take the lead for you, warning you of obstacles in your path or dangers that may be ahead.”
Trust THE Guide
Good words for all of us! Psalm 48:14 says it well: “For this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.” And in Isaiah 58:11: “The Lord will guide you always…”
So trust is important, especially when the path is dark or unknown, letting our Guide lead the way. Psalm 52:8…”I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.” “…in God I trust; I will not be afraid.” from Psalm 56:4.
Anticipate More Lessons to Come
As these weeks move closer to the send-off date in October, anticipate many more lessons to learn…in life, in training to receive a guide, in relationship to THE Guide of eternity.
See you next week!
