A MountainWings Moment
Wings Over The Mountains of Life
-------------------------------------------------

The Child's Ant
================

God had been trying to get my attention for some months, but I
was too deep in debt to hear Him. However, it took just one
divinely orchestrated incident to put everything in
perspective.

I had woken up early to prepare my two little daughters for
school. As I tried to put the older one in the bathtub, she saw
an ant right there. You would have thought she saw a viper.

All my entreaties to her to put down her feet were ignored: her
greatest problem at that point was an ant. To her, an ant was a
big deal, but it wasn't to me. I could easily take care of an
ant any day. Then I got impatient with her for fearing an ant.

At that point, I had a MountainWings Moment! It was as if I
heard an audible voice: "Is that not what you have been doing
to me all these past months?"

What? You mean all the debts I thought were big enough to crush
me were like that ant to God? I had to apologize for having a
low impression of God.

Today, a few months later, all the debts are gone.
