Trusting God and Letting Go
Once a man was chased by a tiger. He was running as hard as he could. At last he reached at the edge of a cliff and tiger was still behind him.
Now the man was at the end of cliff with tiger in front of him. When he saw down the cliff he found that there was a branch growing out of that side of cliff just few feet down.
He jumped off cliff and grabbed that branch. Just than a mouse came out of space near that branch and began to chew on that branch.
Now man was scared to see that that was a thousand drop and he would sure be dead if he fell from that height.
Frightened man looked at sky and yelled, Dear God, please help me. Please save me. I will do any thing you ask me to do.
Suddenly a voice came booming from sky and questioned, You will do anything i ask
Man was shocked to hear reply and replied back, I will do anything but please save me.
Voice from sky replied, There is only one way to save you but it will take courage and faith. Can you do what i ask Do you have faith
Man was too scared to see that branch was getting loosen and tiger was still growling at him from top of that cliff.
So, He replied, Please God, Tell me God what to do I do What ever you say, Your Will is My Will.
Voice from heaven said, All right then, Let go off that branch.
After long silence.
Man looked down again at thousand feet fall and certain death and then looked up again and yelled, Is anyone else up there
(It’s a joke but with important lesson)
Trust God with Whole heart. Without God we lack eternal perspective. Our view is dim and our insight is confined by our narrow range of experience.
It’s about Trusting God even when we can’t see what’s ahead for us. We must be willing to let go of Life we have planned so as to have Life that is Waiting for Us.
