"Wait," he said, "I'll be right back," and off he dashed. When he returned, he had a man with him. Then the boy said t the head botanist, "I'll go over the cliff now and get the flower for you, but his man must hold on to the rope. He's my Dad!"
What a beautiful illustration of faith! The boy knew that Dad would not let harm come to him. The boy had confidence because he knew the strength and the heart of the one who held the rope.
When we go through the struggles of life, when the problems seem to engulf us, do we have confidence in the one who is holding the rope? Those who take the time to nurture their spirit seem to be able to better weather those storms.
