He gives us stories /// back to something I loved

brought back

I’ve been riding horses for nearly two years. I started when I was 9 years old and I fell in love with it. I had caught the riding bug! About a year later everything in my life fell apart and I had to move back to America. I had to stop my riding lessons and I was afraid I was going to have to leave horse riding forever. I tried for months to get lessons, but everywhere was too expensive. After a long, long process my family finally made it back to Scotland and a couple of weeks later I made it back to my horses. Even my new best friend from school has started coming to lessons.

God brought me back to something I loved, and He can do that for you, too.


The Lord may have scattered you to the farthest countries on earth,
but he will bring you back...
— Deuteronomy 30:3–4 (CEV)
