Early in the history of our country a traveler came to the Mississippi River at midwinter. Not finding a bridge and the night falling fast, he had no choice but to make his way across the ice. He was afraid though, because he had no idea if the ice was thick enough to support his weight. He decided to crawl, so he could distribute his weight as much as possible.
Slowly, tearfully, on his hands and knees, he was about half way over when he heard singing behind him. He carefully turned around and saw a man driving a horse-drawn load of coal over the ice, singing merrily as he went. The heavy wagon and horses soon whisked by where the man crawled.
Sorry to say, this could describe my walk with the Lord. For I have been less than confident the Lord had me on solid footing. How about you; have you been there, or are you there now, not sure of your next step. We could stand on the solid rock of God’s promises. Unfortunately we too often fearfully creep along, fearful to trust Jesus with the weight of our entire lives. He is a God that you can stand on!
"The foundation of God standeth sure;..." 2 Timothy 2:19
On our journey through life with the Lord Jesus, let's you and I determine to not be tentatively crawling along, but with confidence sing merrily as He leads.
May the Lord bless you and yours real good today, and remember God loves you and I love you.
