Have faith in God!

A mountaineer was climbing a high mountain. It was his 3rd day of mountain climbing. It was chilly winter night. The night was dark and gloomy. He was alone without any guide or team. Clouds have covered the moon and the starts so he could see nothing up or down. But he knew that he was just a few feet away from the peak. Something unbelievable happened. He slipped. He slipped and fell in to the air, falling at great speed. He could only see black spots as he went down, and the terrible sensation of being sucked by gravity.
He kept falling, and in the moments of great terror, it came to his mind all the good and bad happenings of his life. He was thinking that how close death was getting; when all of a sudden he felt the rope tied to his waist pull him very hard. His body was hanging in the air.
Only the rope was holding him and in that moment of stillness he had no other choice other to scream: “Help me God.”
All of a sudden a deep voice coming from the sky answered, “What do you want me to do?”
“Save me God.”
“Do you really think I can save you?”
“Of course I believe You can.”
“Then cut the rope tied to your waist.”
There was a moment of silence. The man was double minded. He could not decide what to do. Life is very precious. Being young he wanted to live long to enjoy life to the fullest. Hence he decided to hold on to the rope with all his strength.
The next day it was in newspaper with his photo saying,”The rescue team found a dead and frozen, body of a mountaineer hanging from a rope. His hands tightly held the rope. Poor man was just one foot away from the ground.
Moral of the story: Don’t ever doubt about the words of God. We should never say that He has forgotten us or neglected us.
