In the fall of 2021, eight of our KFUMC staff members participated in two days of training on the low ropes course at Light on the Hill. A low ropes course is a ground-based obstacle course designed to encourage team building and personal development. The #1 benefit to participation in low ropes elements is outcomes such as trust building. Other common outcomes are self confidence, team cooperation, decision making, communication skills, positive risk-taking, leadership skills, and goal setting, to name a few. Our group had fun, worked hard, laughed harder and grew to recognize and depend on each other’s strengths. We leaned on each other and trusted in each other to complete the tasks at hand. Participating in the activities took me out of my comfort zone and if I hadn’t been able to lean on (literally) and trust my group, I absolutely would not have been able to problem solve and successfully navigate the course.
This reminds me of how we have to lean on and trust in God to make it through each day and navigate life. Our natural preference is to plan everything out but God wants us to depend on Him constantly, trusting Him to guide us and support us as we go. As the problems of the world seem heavier every day, it is so good to be able to lean on God and trust Him to give us strength as we need it.
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all of your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. Proverbs 3:5 AMP
