Ladder Of Life
© 2014

by

Stephen A. Peterson


My steps have held to Your paths; my feet have not stumbled.

Psalms 17:5 (NIV)


As one moves through life whether it be up or down, we will encounter rugged ladders giving us splinters that nag us, hurt and attempt to discourage us from moving upward. So long as one ascends with the points, but looks out if one starts to slip, the ladder will be their triumph not their fall.

What few seem to understand is the great law of life—ascension—not standing still or waiting for something to happen or looking for the worse without trying is the formula for achievement and success. In case of one slip, stop momentarily, pick out the splinter or splinters and continue to climb. Despite what some have been led to believe, there has never been a person at the top who arrived without the scars of splinters. Those who are complacent, fearful and timid, it may seem worthless to climb two hours and pick out splinters five hours. However, to alternate one’s efforts in such proportions will never see that person at the bottom of the ladder of life. He/she will get there to witness the fruits of their efforts knowing that more ladders are available for them as life is not static.


Prayer: Almighty God and Father, grant me the heart, mind, soul and energy to climb upward fearlessly. And when I slip, to stop and call on You to help me climb again. These things I pray. Amen.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
