CROSSING OVER

Sometimes there is a long bridge ahead in life.  The bridge is crossing over open deep gorges of things unknown that are lost in a dark mist.  The bridge is so long you cannot see the land on the other side, and yet you have no choice but to move forward and cross the bridge.  You are paralyzed in fear before you even begin with the first step.

How would you cross over?   Easy answer for me who does not like to drive. If it were a driving situation I typically hit a bridge and go fast fast fast....I figure if I go slow the anguish and fear have longer to take hold of me... so it is easier to take a deep cleansing breath and increase my speed to cross knowing full well God is right beside me in the process.

But what if the bridge is soooo long that you cannot do that? Whether by foot or by the use of transportation...it is a 5 mile bridge. 

In life there are always times and occurrences that loom before us like the unending bridge.  We have no insight as to what is on the other side of the bridge and the alternative route of climbing through the rocks below and wading through dark foreboding streams is not acceptable.  God has made it clear to us that our path is only on this bridge and it is only one way and there is no other choice left open to us.  Things are out of our control, yet GOD is not out of our grasp. He is right there.

He will walk you across that bridge. He will carry you across that bridge. The importance is your acceptance to give up control and have total faith in the upcoming journey. He wants you to view it as something with possibilities and keep your mind open while you listen for His directions in your life. Don't assume anything. Be still and know that He is God. He is your protector, your strength and your guide as you make this crossing over.

"He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
   I will be exalted among the nations,
   I will be exalted in the earth.”  Psalm 46:10
