After the nighttime storm, the rising sun over the mountain reflected on the placid lake, heating the water’s surface, and causing a swirling white mist to rise. The first thing he noticed was the beauty of the view. The second thing he saw, or rather missed, because it was not moored where it had been the previous evening, was the yellow 6 x 6 float with the folding aluminum ladder. It took a moment for him to believe it was gone. Using his binoculars, he scanned the shoreline, far and near, and saw nothing yellow. Knowing the current ran south on the six-mile lake, he climbed into his canoe and began to paddle. A friendly neighbor, on hearing about the lost float, offered to reconnoiter the lake on his jet ski. The neighbor found the float four miles down the lake near the opposite shore. The neighbor towed the float back to its proper place where it was reattached to the chain.
What caused the float to break away? A carabiner clip on the mooring chain had failed during the storm. The weak link caused the float to be lost.
Most of us have at least one weak link in our character make-up, a particular flaw that leads us astray, that causes us to lose our mooring and to drift into danger. Whatever it is, it is the one thing that tends to let go when life gets rough.
Let’s Pray: Dear God, be our strength when we are weak. Turn our weakness into strength. Amen.
Here’s a Thought: God is the strength of your heart.
