On the Side of the Cliff

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9

Living through Christ...

Oh, how I wish that choosing Christ made things simpler. When we finally say, "Okay. Use me however You choose," our lives are opened to new and exciting opportunities that seem to stretch us further than we ever dreamed. And once we have been stretched, we need Christ all the more!

Lord, I feel like I have been climbing up the face of a mighty cliff. I haven't yet reached the top, but I am closer than ever before. Yet now I am frightened. The biggest challenges are still before me - greater responsibility at work, graduate classes, continued commitments that drain my energy.

I really need to understand what it is to live through You. There is no responsibility so great that You don't know the answers. Give me insight, clarity, and courage. I am anxious about moving. Will I fall? Will I succeed? I can't stay here - on the side of the cliff. Will You climb with me today?
