A true story by Josh and Karen Zarandona
I love GOD.
Brenda was a young woman who was invited to go rock climbing. Although she
was scared to death, she went with her group to a tremendous granite cliff.
In spite of her fear, she put on the gear, took a hold on the rope, and
started up the face of that rock. Well, she got to a ledge where she could take
a breather. As she was hanging on there, the safety rope snapped against
Brenda's eye and knocked out her contact lens. Well, here she is on a rock ledge, with
hundreds of feet below her and hundreds of feet above her. Of course, she looked
and looked and looked, hoping it had landed on the ledge, but it just
wasn't there. Here she was, far from home, her sight now blurry. She was desperate and
began to get upset, so she prayed to the Lord to help her to find it.
When she got to the top, a friend examined her eye and her clothing for
the lens, but there was no contact lens to be found. She sat down,
despondent, with the rest of the party, waiting for the rest of them to
make it up the face of the cliff. She looked out across range after range
of mountains, thinking of that Bible verse that says, "The eyes of the Lord
run to and fro throughout the whole earth." She thought, "Lord, You can see
all these mountains. You know every stone and leaf, and You know exactly
where my contact lens is. Please help me." Finally, they walked down
the trail to the bottom. At the bottom there was a new party of! climbers
just starting up the face of the cliff. One of them shouted out, "Hey, you
guys! Anybody lose a contact lens?" Well, that would be startling enough, but
you know why the climber saw it? An ant was moving slowly across the face of
the rock, carrying it.
Brenda told me that her father is a cartoonist. When she told him the
incredible story of the ant, the prayer, and the contact lens, he drew a
picture of an ant lugging that contact lens with the words, "Lord, I don't
know why You want me to carry this thing. I can't eat it, and it's awfully
heavy. But if this is what You want me to do, I'll carry it for You."
I think it would probably do some of us good to occasionally say, "God, I
don't know why you want me to carry this load. I can see no good in it and
it's awfully heavy. But, if you want me to carry it, I will."
God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
He is my source of existence and my Savior.
He keeps me functioning each and every day.
Without Him, I am nothing,
but with Him I can do all things
through Christ who strengthens me.
This is a simple test.
If you love GOD and are not ashamed of
all the marvelous things He has done for you,
pass this on to your friends!
