End of the Rope

I remember back in high school a poster hung on the wall in my college prep. class. It said, "When you are at the end of your rope, tie a knot in it!" I often feel like I come to the end of the rope and do my best to tie a knot in it. Yet after awhile, I begin to feel weak. "Oh, Lord, You've got to help me; I am going to fall!!" I cry out. Some times He comes and wraps His strong arms around me and holds me secure. Other times He tells me to just fall and He will catch me. That is the more difficult times. Yet He always, always catches me safe in His arms. I will admit, falling is a scary and lonely feeling. Yet being caught and carried in the arms of God is just too amazing for words.
