Welcome to Llama Treks — “Let me touch you.”

Moon Pie (Beam)

If your llamas are anything like ours, you will quickly come to find that they don’t like to be touched. After all, they are animals — not our children.  But once you get hold of them, they calm right down.  That reminded me of this verse from Genesis: Ch 32:26 Then the man said, “Let me go, for the dawn is breaking.” “I will not let you go,” Jacob replied, “unless you bless me.”

The way I see it, none of likes to be ‘touched’ by God. We like to do our own thing all the while giving the appearance of doing it for God. God can touch us, or nudge us in one direction or another, but it makes us uncomfortable.  Now, when God finally gets hold of us, we know it and give up fighting and, consequently, we are generally blessed by it. Our llamas are smart enough to know when they are caught and give up the fight. How much better it would be if they would only let us touch them to put on the halter or lead rope.

Love your llamas, but let them be what God created them to be.  After all, you wouldn’t want to grow up like some of the kids we see around us.  We are not llamas, so don’t wait until God grabs hold of you to follow Him. Yield to His gentle touch.
