Experience this compelling and uplifting story of a real horse in desperate need of rescue. Co-written by Shiner and the one who found him.
Nine year-old Appaloosa brothers Shiner and Ace were out of hope and out of time. Then God stepped in by asking the woman who attended their births to find and bring them home.
How much does God really care about you? Have you felt hopeless, with circumstances too bleak to ever improve? No matter how reasonable your fears, there is no bottomless pit. There is a bottom, and there is hope. Always. How does the author know? She’s been to the pit.
What do the experience of an unwanted horse and the promise of a mansion in heaven have in common? Both prove that hope rests on a firm foundation, even when you can’t see it. We’ve all failed someone in our lives, just as others failed us. But forgiveness and redemption are real.
God sent the author to find two horses – by name – nine years after they were sold as youngsters. With the downturn in the economy the last thing she needed was more horses, and she had no idea where to find these two. No matter what God asks you to do, He provides the means to get it done. His hand orchestrated every step of the journey.
Shiner was never lost to God and neither are you
With time was running out. Shiner and Ace must have felt the same way Black Beauty did, waiting for the end to come. Sometimes death seems preferable to life when each day is too painful and you’ve run out of options. In ways only the supernatural hand of God can arrange, Shiner and Ace were found, but without hope or spirit. Black Beauty was rescued and came home, never to be sold again. So were Shiner and Ace.
Black Beauty is a fictional horse while Shiner and Ace are brothers; real horses born seven days apart and never separated. Shiner and Ace are the last sons of Lynn’s champion stallion readers met in Amazing Grays, Amazing Grace. When you’re family, you’re family.
Would you like to hear Shiner’s side of the story? Let him tell you how it feels when deliverance comes because God knows your name. If you’ve ever doubted God’s promises, Shiner testifies that His promises are true.
Do miracles still happen? Yes, they do.
