This story might strengthen our faith! May God! They tell the story of a

mountain climber, desperate to conquer the Aconcagua, initiated his

climb after years of preparation. But he wanted the glory to himself;

therefore, he went up alone. He started climbing and it was becoming

later and later. He did not prepare for camping but decided to keep on

going. Soon it got dark . . . Night fell with heaviness at such high

altitude and there was zero visibility. Everything was black, no moon,

and the stars covered by clouds. As he was climbing a ridge at about

100 meters from the top, he slipped and fell. Falling rapidly he could

only see blotches of darkness that passed in the same darkness and

a terrible sensation of being suctioned by gravity. He kept falling and

in those anguishing moments’ good and bad memories passed

through his mind. He thought he would die. Nevertheless, he felt a jolt

that almost tore him in half. Like any good mountain climber he had

staked himself with a long rope tied to his waist. In those moments of

stillness, suspended in the air he had no other choice but to shout,

“HELP ME GOD”, “HELP ME!” All of a sudden he heard a deep voice

from heaven. “What do you want me to do?” “SAVE ME” “Do you

REALLY think that I can save you?” “OF COURSE, MY GOD” “Then

cut the rope that is holding you up.” There was another moment of

silence and stillness. The man held tighter to the rope. The rescue

team says that the next day they found, a frozen mountain climber

hanging strongly to a rope TWO FEET off the ground . . .

What about you? How trusting are you in that rope? Why don’t you let

it go? I tell you, God has great and marvellous things for you.
