Dan posted this image of the Walk of Faith and it reminded me of the glass floor in the CN Tower in Toronto. That was one of the touristy stops we hit when Unfriendly, his younger sis and I visited in 2000.
I didn’t think I’d have a problem stepping out onto that glass floor. I don’t have a problem with heights. Parasailing? No problem. Roller coasters? Love ‘em.
I could not. I kept trying and I simply could not.
I knew it was a floor. It was like something deep within my brain was not letting me because of the fact that I could see the fall.
The road to holiness may not be easy, it sure is impossible if not because of Jesus walking with us, but in the end it will all be worth it. As I analyze myself and let God search my heart in the process, I’ve been reminded of a lot of things, learned a couple more and been transformed slowly, little by little. It’s like I’m taking small dosage of medicine called grace every single moment , but no matter how small the dosage of this grace God has been giving me it seems almost unbearable, overwhelming to say the least. Me, a sinner being showered with grace, sanctified and wrapped in the Holy Spirit every day? Now who could fathom such thought?
True prayer is looking to God—standing before God. It is letting go of my standards and my thoughts and letting God completely take over. It is a time of putting down my weaknesses and holding on to God’s power. Prayer is focusing on God. It is because we are lacking and weak that we need God’s strength.
As we live our lives, it is so easy for us to become occupied with trivial matters and get carried away by them. I’m sure that we see ourselves only looking to God and praying when we feel the need to because I know I do quite a lot. What we have to realize is the difference between praying within our lives and living within prayer. Praying should not be a part of our lives. We should live inside of prayer and continuously seek God’s strength within our lives.
