Mountains Teach

Excitedly we began our first visit to the mountains by climbing an 8 foot high rock wall and enjoying the exhilaration of following some pathways and some just climbing. We discovered a ledge in front of a shallow cave with an awesome view~ a perfect place for lunch! What a blessing!

After a while we embarked on more exploring. In the mountains the sun goes to bed early, so we decided it was time to find a way back to our car. Not wanting to climb down that rock wall, we began following the rushing river (due to the Spring runoff). We came to a campsite someone had built out of rocks. It was a circle with a safe fireplace. (God is our Provider!)

Meanwhile night was descending quickly. My husband grabbed a stick, tied his undershirt to it, and began waving it at the cars passing on the road above the other side of the waters. I started gathering wood for a fire. A policeman stopped on the road, indicated he would try to reach us. So we settled in by the fire. However, the man was unsuccessful.

OK, I thought, a night on the mountain couldn’t be too bad. We had fire, heavy coats and water. I’d gathered pine branches to lay on. And we had God’s beautiful starry sky above.

1Peter 5:7 Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

Before too long red and blue flashing lights arrived on the road. A very large truck with huge spot lights had come to rescue us. The rushing river, trees,  and our campsite were well lit. First rescuer was a man they sent over the river in a small boat. Well it upended and he got tossed into the rushing current. I said “No. Just leave us. I don’t want anyone to be killed for us.” (He made it safely to the other side.)

But our rescue team persisted and threw a rope over to my husband to tie securely around a tree. Then from their end they sent over a man in a litter. He helped me first then my husband get pulled to the other side, where I thanked them and told them how I didn’t want them harmed rescuing us.

That’s when they informed us that their lights revealed a big mountain lion sitting up in a nearby tree watching us. Oh.

Going through life we can get stuck on the wrong side of a decision; we can think we are wise enough and strong enough to get ourselves out of it; but without God’s help we can be in a dangerous predicament, because that old devil lion is watching.     



1 Peter 5:8 (NIV) Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around
like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Keeping close to God is the best way to stay safe in all situations. Continually spending time with Him on a daily basis builds that close relationship. When was the last time you found yourself in a "tight" position or situation? Did God help you out of it?
