Miracle of the Horse-God Give Strength
Taken from the book,"The Voices Within Us" by Jim Stewart

May 2000

One late afternoon I was feeling pretty down and out and defeated to the max. It seemed no matter what I prayed for, God wasn't listening to me. I asked God how much longer must I endure this suffering that I was going through. The angels told me to read in the bible, Psalms 13, Psalms 28, and the Book of James.

I said, "God, please give me the strength or a sign telling me how to get through this mess." I closed my eyes and my hand started drawing a picture on a piece of paper. I could not control my hand. All this time I kept my eyes closed. I just let my hand  and pen draw. When I opened my eyes, I had certainly drawn something; but I could not tell what it was.

A friend of mine, Brother Roy, came by to see me, right after I had scribbled this picture. We were just sitting there chewing the fat when I glimpsed at the picture. I cried out, "It's a horse! It's a horse!It's a horse!It's a picture of a horses head." Brother Roy loked at me like I was crazy and said, "What's a horse?" This picture, this picture here.isa picture of a horse. I drew it with myeyes closed. Take a look at it, Roy."I gave the picture to him and he agreed that it was a picture of a horse. I sat down and started crying. Brother Roy asked,"What's wrong Jimbo?" I told him that I had asked God to give me a sign of strength or to give me the strength I needed to get through these hard times. "God gave me that sign. God gave me that sign, Brother Roy." I told Roy how a horse was the symbol of strength. This was God's way of saying he would give me the strength that I needed.

Unbelievable peace came to me that night.

The picture above is the actual picture I drew.

God does give us strength when we need it. He did this his unusual way, that is how he works in our lives somehow. Ask and you will receive. I actually believe he does just that when you ask. A sign from God for you to go on, you have strength to do it now.
