The Musings of a Stubborn Believer

Lean Harder

“Lean harder…”

The ground dropped away before them, a steep rocky slope covered by an unstable mat of pine needles.

“My footing will be better with both your weight and mine.”

I watched their feet; the two strong ones on the outside and the weaker in the midst.

Suddenly there was a solidity of step, as the weight on the shuffling feet was trusted to stronger ones downhill.

. . . . . . 

Hours later I thought:

God is like that.

He needs all of my weight for optimum footing in my life. 
I can insist on using my lame feet when the slope is particularly scary, 

but I put myself at risk for a fall…

Jesus, help me remember.


  1. Amen…may I be more willing to place my hand in His…and trust everything to His care. Thanks Sean for the reminder.

  2. Thank you so much. So often I try to do things in my own strength when I really should be leaning completely on Jesus.

  3. Wow. What an object lesson. It touched my heart. Thank you for sharing, Seán.
