Don't worry, He will catch you!

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Deut. 33:27 The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them.

Yesterday, as I was getting my daughter Elianna (5 years old) ready for school, our increasingly spunky son Obi decided to climb the ladder on the bunk bed in their room. When he climbed the ladder in the past he usually went up only one level, but yesterday he decided to try and climb all the way to the top! As I was carefully watching him, he began to climb down…and his foot missed one of the steps, and he somersaulted down right into my arms. (Just so you know, we've taken down the ladder since this incident!)

I'm not certain, but I'm pretty sure Obi became more daring because he saw that I was watching him. Anyway, he had absolutely no fear of falling, and just pressed forward toward the top. Then, even when he did fall, I quickly caught him. I think we can learn a deep lesson from Obi. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could have that kind of total trust and faith in our Heavenly Father? Instead of being apprehensive and fearful, or dwelling too much on the past, we could just exercise courage and trust about taking the next step into something incredible, maybe something higher than we've ever known before – remember, we have a God with whom nothing is impossible!

Climb to new heights today – and don't worry about falling, for truly His Everlasting arms are opened wide ready to catch you should you slip! With so much work to be done, do not allow the fear of failure to hold you back!
