This past spring, my youngest daughter, Brooke, and I trained to be facilitators at Camp Metigoshe’s high ropes course. The 32-hour, three-day training required us to spend a lot of time on top of a 35-foot pole.
Over the course of this training I couldn’t help but compare God’s love for us to the staples and foot holds on each pole. They were there, and they were solid. I knew they wouldn’t fail.
Moving at God’s pace and following God’s direction with firm foundations allowed me to get closer and closer to the top. Having faith in that foundation gave me comfort, and the harness that surrounded my body felt like Gods arms holding on.
I sensed the presence of God, humbled and holy.
