The Uncertainty of Life

Many years ago, I was skiing above Denver on the Continental Divide. I went to the top of the mountain and sat in the snow. I was at 15,000 ft. above sea level. It was one of the highest peaks in the lower 48 states. I could see for miles in both directions. The snow was beautiful, sparkling in the sunlight. I felt small and insignificant compared to the mountain. While skiing down the mountain, a snow storm came through. All I could do is the stand still until it passed. It was totally black inside the cloud. I knew that I wasn’t in control at that point. I was at the mercy of the mountain. It was unsettling that I couldn’t control my circumstances. It was the beginning of a learning curve. A curve that I had to learn to survive. As much as, I say how much I am in charge of my life, I am not. I can’t stop accidents. I can’t stop diseases. I can’t say when I will die. I can’t say much about my life except no. Your life is affected by your circumstances, your health, your education, your wealth and by so many other things that you can’t control in life. I don’t fear these things anymore. I understand and have accepted that I need help with my life. I need a power that is greater than myself. I only found one source of power to change my circumstances. And His name is Jesus. I am no longer afraid and my needs are met. So now I can live the life that God has planned for me. And all you have to do is ask.
