Safe on Your Knees

Our Words for the Week are from Turning Point Daily Devotional, (9/15/06).

As a group of amateur climbers scaled part of the Matterhorn near Zermatt, Switzerland, a vicious gust of wind came along at a narrow ledge. The guide quickly shouted, “Get down on your knees! You are safe only on your knees!”

That’s good advice for all of us. The ledges of life are narrow, and the winds are strong. Only on our knees, seeking God relentlessly in our prayers, can we find safety and security.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. — Dalai Lama

  1. From embarrassment I could have died,
    for I thought the Prince of Dharma
    was really, as his name implied,
    well, you see, a llama.
    But there is something more than that,
    for I thought that the Good Shepherd
    had a thing for big ol’ cats;
    He was always healing leopards.
    And now, in all humility,
    I must present the facts;
    I saw apostles down a tree
    in the Book of Ax.
    and Heaven’s soil hath what it takes
    for God doth grow amazing grapes.
