‘Resting, Not Worrying’ Author: Hannah Whitall Smith
AMONG the peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains not far from the busy whirl of San Francisco, lies Lake Tahoe. It is twenty-three miles long, ten miles wide, and so deep that a line dropped nineteen hundred feet does not touch bottom; and it lies five thousand feet about the neighboring ocean. Storms come and go in waters that are lower down the mountains, but down the mountains, but this lake is so still and clear that the eye can penetrate, it is said a hundred feet into its depths. Around its mild verdant sides are the mountains, ever crowned with snow . The sky above is as calm as the motionless water. Nature loses scarcely anything of its clear outline as it is reflected there. Here the soul may learn something of what rest is, as day after day one opens one’s heart to let the sweet influence of nature’s sabbath enter and reign. This is but a faint type of what we may find in Christ. In the pressure of the greatest responsibilities, in the worry of the smallest cares, in the perplexities of life’s moments of crisis we may have the Lake Tahoe rest in the security of God’s will. Learn to live in this rest.
