story tells about a mountain climber, who wanted to climb the
highest mountain. He begun his adventure after many years of
preparation, but since he
wanted the glory just for himself, he
decided to climb the mountain alone.
He started to climb but it begun to get very late, and instead of preparing his tent to camp, he kept climbing until it got very dark.
The night felt heavy in the heights of the mountain, and the man could not see anything. All was black. Zero visibility, and the moon and the stars were covered by the clouds.
As he was climbing, only a few feet away from the top of the mountain, he slipped and fell into the air, falling at a great speed. The climber could only see black spots as he went down, and the terrible sensation of being sucked by gravity. He kept falling… and in those moments of great fear, it came to his mind all the good and bad episodes of his life.
He was thinking now about how close death was getting, when all of a sudden he felt the rope tied to his waist pull him very hard.
body was hanging in the air.. Only the rope was holding him, and in
that moment of stillness he had no other choice but to scream: Help
All of a sudden, a deep voice coming from the sky answered: "What do you want me to do?"
Save me God!! - the man replied.
Of course I believe You can - the man replied.
"Then cut the rope tied to your waist..."
was a moment of silence; and the man decided to hold on to the
rope with all his strength.
And you? How attached are you to your rope? Will you let go?
Don’t ever doubt the things from God. You never should say that He has forgotten or abandoned you. Don’t ever think that He does not take care of you. Remember that He is always holding you with His right hand.
"For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you" - Isaiah 41:13.
