On That Cliff's Edge

No fear, dear one? Not anymore? And yet, nothing has changed - you are still on that cliff's edge, just as near to falling as you were before; and still there lies a precipice below and nothing but thin air in front. So good to see you figured it out.

It took awhile, but somewhere between the shudderings and leaf-like quakings and startled-eyed glances over the rim and down . . . somewhere in the middle of it all you lifted up your head. And He who made you, made that cliff, and made your path lead to its edge, was waiting for that moment all along.

This is how rays of hope come!

    Why do we ever take our eyes off Him?

    When will we learn that all good comes from beholding Him?

    Even loving, Christian service is a lesser attainment: "Martha, Martha, only one thing is necessary... Mary has chosen the better part, and it shall not be taken from her."
