Reading: 2 Corinthians 12: 9-10
I've had the opportunity to go whitewater rafting down the Youghigheny River in Western Pennsylvania. At one point in our trip, we came upon a very large rock near a rapid. Our guides told us that despite our instincts, we should learn into the rock when approached it. If we leaned away, we would tip our boat and be caught in the dangerous under-toe of the river.
Sometimes we may face circumstances where we want to run away from the obstacle. But we need to go full force and lean into them. God uses weakness to perfect us. Just as we had to do on the river, you need to keep paddling, even when you feel down. Lean on the rock of Christ and you will not be carried under the water! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
