THE LEDGE 2

Even though it was scary, I decided to take the ledge with Jesus.   With  a deep breath relaxing my body, a prayer for His protection, a call to Holy Spirit to guide my thoughts, I step out. It’s wide enough at the beginning for me to walk natural and keep my focus on the trail ahead, not on the drop off. Rounding the first bend the trail continues but I can see it narrows at the next curve. My focus is on Jesus and our first climbs and how He led me with His light. OK. Deep breath. Walk. Focus. Turning sideways I take smaller steps and lean into the rock as I round the curve. I see it goes on quite a ways.

O Jesus, what are You teaching me here? “Mary, I never said it would be easy. Trust Me.” Jesus, I trust You. When I got tired on the climb, You told me I could do it. If You sent me on this trail, You knew I could do it and You will enable me to finish the course. I trust You. Around the next turn the ledge widens again and there’s even a place to sit and rest. Jesus is there, “In your journey I provide rest when you need it. Trust Me. Drink and be refreshed.”

John 6:35 (AMP)
Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more (at any time).

Somehow, I believe it was not the water bottle He was talking about. From this space I could see the ledge continuing with no end in sight. I cannot stay here, I must either go on or go back. Night was not too far away. What do I do?

Do you come to places where You must either trust God and go on, or give up and return to safer territory?
