Learning to Lean on God



How many times do we try to do all the work instead of leaning on God and staying dependent on Him?

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 for 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.
