Trusting When the Ground Shakes


This is Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge in County Antrim, Ireland.   It stands 20 meters long and sways 30 meters above the rocks below.  The current bridge, built in 2008, can hold 8 people at a time, and gives a dizzying thrill of a walk to visitors crossing over to the tiny island of Carrickarede.  There are some visitors that had to leave the tiny island by boat, due to fear of walking back across the bridge again.  But most people do just fine, trusting that the makers of the bridge knew what they were doing.

We all go through things in our lives that feel like that bridge, shaky, dizzying, uncertain, high above the ground.  Who made you, who made this whole world and the things in it that sometimes feel so shaky?  The Lord God, Maker of the Universe, is the best builder, and in Him all things are held together.  And we can cross to and fro, to and fro, trusting the Builder to know what He’s doing.  Even if we’re freaking out and whining and screaming, He’s calm and in control.  Giving us the trust we need to take that step right onto the bridge.

Holding on tightly today, Lisa
