We just enjoyed a great weekend of fellowship with our church youth group at one of the local lakes. The kids loved the water, even though it felt about 35 degrees, and did some rock climbing and jumping off said rocks into that frigid water! My hubby loves to do this and is game to take anyone along who is up to the challenge with him. I can say that would not be me. The highest they jumped this weekend was from about 40-50 feet...too high, if you ask me.

We could do this thing called life on our own and probably do a fairly good job at it...until a crisis comes along that causes us to panic. What would we do then? We'd have nowhere to turn, but to our own devices...scary! But if we live our life with Jesus by our side, when those times of trouble come along, we can just let go and let him keep us afloat. We don't have to doggie paddle in the frigid lake. We can just float along and wait on Him to work it out for us.
This summer, whenever you put on a life jacket, remember that Jesus is your flotation device! He's one that you never want to take off.
