        Reach for the Rock

        Posted on by Jason Bonnicksen.

        2 Samuel 22:1–7
        “…my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge” (2 Sa 22:3).

        “I must be crazy,” cycled through my mind as I climbed onto the ledge. I thought, I don’t know if I want to do this! However, moments later—after mustering a smidgen of courage with a heaping dose of insanity—I leapt from the rock into the frigid waters below.

        Earlier that day my friend Corey asked, “Who’s up for the 2012 Spring Plunge?”  It was an annual tradition—leaping from “the Rock” into the torrent of the North Fork’s frosty flow. Call me nuts; but I thought “Why not?

        Ten feet and midair above the river’s surface, I realized it was too late to turn back. There was no going back—no Wiley-Coyote moments of running midair towards the ledge. My only thought on the way down was “Oh God…”

         

        My body plunged into the 40° torrent. I rose to the surface, quickly being swept into dangerous waters. I reached for the rock and grasped its granite with all my strength. As I climbed atop its foundation, I thanked God for his refuge.

        The experience was exhilarating, frightening, and an awakening. I was reminded that sometimes we need to take “the plunge.” My jump was synonymous with the opportunities life presents to take a leap of faith, not always knowing what awaits. The waters may be dangerous; however, God is nearby and beckons us to reach for him.

        When the time arises, will you take that leap knowing you can reach for the rock that safely calls your name?

        Lord God, help us muster the courage to risk it all for you—knowing that you are the rock to reach for and to grab a hold.
