At times I am a complete mess. I can’t tell good from bad, bad from good, guilt and shame from blessing and joy. I need discernment. And it comes—for God is faithful. Then I usually begin to see that both good and bad have occurred, and I am somewhat able to separate them. But as I do I begin to become more and more aware of just how thin the rope I am walking. So thin it’s not even visible. So thin that for all practical purposes it’s not even there—it doesn’t exist. So after discernment comes a call, a begging, for more faith, more trust, more humility, more courage, more hope. For walking in thin air is not something I can ever get into this thick head.
