Go jump off a cliff

Holocaust survivor Corrie Ten Boom wrote, “there is no pit so deep that the love of God is not deeper still. Despair zaps our energy and motivation. It can make us feel immovable, stuck in a pit. “Hope can seem so unrealistic and fragile with despair pressing down on us.

When even the daily routines of life seem like pointless optimism, God invites us out of the pit and onto a cliff called hope. There we can fall into the lightness and lift of His vision and truth.

Sometimes God supplies us with wings and uplift to give us flight; and sometimes He just picks us up and flies us out under His own wings. If you’ve seen Lord of the Rings,  imagine the scene near the end when the eagles come and carry Frodo and Sam away from the lava flow on Mt. Doom. When we feel helpless, hopeless, and completely spent, this is a great picture of God’s rescue. He always has us and nothing we face is too hard.

Thank you giving me wings to fly and for taking me securely under Yours.
