My son kept falling so I told him to lean on me. Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries.
Our family was snow skiing and ended up on a slope that was way bigger than we expected. My son Andrew, who was 8, kept falling and getting hurt. So, I decide to “ski him down.” I told him to stand in front of me with his skis in between mine and wrap his arms around my elbows. It was crazy and I was terrified, but I wanted to get him down safely.
Well, we finally got to the bottom of the mountain – alive. When I told Andrew I was proud of him for staying focused and keeping his skis straight, he said, “Mom, you did all the work. I just had to lean on you.”
It made me think about how many times I try to do all the work instead of leaning on God and staying dependent on HIM by leaning on His strength and letting Him guide me each day.
