and what if the bridge is slick?


it is snowing again, nothing new about that…but after yesterday’s walk, i thought of this scene as i was traveling east on the trail. the surrounding rise stood clear of snow, but the bridge remained slick.

it is that way often in life- we are journeying forward, only to find a crossing so slick, we can’t imagine crossing it without getting hurt.

what is the slick crossing you have in front of you?

is it too great a crossing to trust an all powerful God?

i cannot trust what i see…there is too much at stake, too much in the spirit world i cannot see. i must trust the all-knowing, all-powerful God. The Presence is the only one who can  give me the wisdom to cross or not to cross. i know, i may be crossing it soon.

    Great analogy, Daithi! My bridge is pretty icy right now so I really identify with this.

    I can’t trust my eyes I have to rely upon the Lord to show me because what I see and what He sees are two different things
