Do you ever feel like you are amidst a crisis of impossibility?
Imagine you are standing on one side of a canyon. Your toes are curling over the edge as your muscles tighten to hold yourself steady. You look down and around to see a gaping gorge staring back at you. Fear shocks your heart forcefully. You look across the other side of the canyon, the place you desire to be. But how do you get there. Getting across the canyon seems impossible!
Sometimes this is how I feel when I see others doing what I really want to be doing. And the anxiety and worry burden me when I believe I’ll never get to where they are because of all the other things I have to do first. This kind of comparison is tough on the heart. It stirs up jealousy and all kinds of frustration.
Today’s devotional is going to take a look at two women in the Bible and how they dealt with a similar situation.
Sometimes we are confronted with what feels like a crisis of impossibility, when in reality, we have a choice that will free us and help us get to where we need to go.
