There is a story told a mountain climber, desperate to conquer the Aconcagua, initiated his climb after years of preparation. But he wanted to spotlight all to himself, therefore, he went up alone. He started climbing and it was becoming late, and later. He did not prepare for camping but decided to keep on going. Soon it got dark. Night fell with heaviness at such high altitude and there was zero visibility.
Everything was black, no moon, and the stars were covered by clouds. As he was climbing at a ridge at about 100 meters from the top, he slipped and fell…falling rapidly and could only see blotches of darkness that passed in the same darkness and a terrible sensation of being suctioned by gravity.
He kept falling and in those anguishing moments good and bad memories passed trough his mind. He thought he would die. Nevertheless, he felt a jolt that almost tore him in half… Yes! Like any good mountain climber he had staked himself with a long rope tied to his waist. In those moments of stillness, suspended in the air he had no other choice but to shout, “Help me, God!, HELP ME!”
All of sudden he heard a deep voice from heaven… “What do you want me to do?” Save me!” the mountain climber cried. “Do you really think that I can save you?” Of course you can, You are God.” “Then cut the rope that is holding you up.”
There was another moment of silence and stillness. The man held tighter to the rope. The rescue team says that the next day they found a frozen mountain climber hanging strongly to a rope. Only two foot off the ground.
How about you? How trusting are you with that rope? Why don’t you let it go? God has great and marvelous thing s for you. Cut your rope today! Simply trust in Him!.
