Canadians proudly show Toronto’s CN tower to every visitor. I do confess though that I have not and do not expect to do the edge walk. You might have seen it on TV. People are tied by (what looks to me) a flimsy cord and they lean themselves over the top edge.
Nor will I stagger to the top in the stair climb of 144 flights of stairs totalling 1,776 steps. What if I got hit by lightning while I was climbing or leaning? It gets hit by lightning about 75 times a year. That’s about every four days! Yikes!
So now you know I am afraid of falling, of heights and of lightning. What do you fear? We can avoid some of our fears, but Jesus will help us face them if they do show up! ( I pray he never has to help me conquer the CN tower!)
And you shall be secure and feel confident because there is hope; yes, you shall search about you, and you shall take your rest in safety. You shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid. (Job 11: 18-19b, AMP)
Prayer- Lord, thank you for being our safety and enabler through fear, whether it be heights, falling or yes, even lightning. Amen.
