While walking among the mountains, John suddenly lost his balance and fell down a slope but he could catch a small tree that appeared in his way. Then, he looked around and around but found no way to walk in; at top, there was a hill which he could not climb and under it, there was a very deep slope.
Thus, he began shouting, “Help! Help!”
However, no one could hear his voice to help and save him. Therefore, he continued shouting very loudly asking for help.
Finally, he heard a very kind voice asking him, ”John, John, can you see me?”
“No, who are you?”
“I’m the one who saved your whole life.”
“I need help please.”
“Don’t be afraid. I see you.”
“Where are you?”
“Are you God?”
“Yes I’m. I want to save you. Just leave this small tree that I have sent you and throw yourself in My hands, as I’ll carry you.”
“But I can’t see Your hands. I need a rope or human hands, anything that I can see to carry me.”
John stopped talking with God for a while and he shouted again, “Help! Help!”
That time, he found no response.
How stupid I am!
Even when I hear Your voice,
I do not respond.
I trust the human hands not the heavenly ones.
Oh God, please help me to come back to Your bosom.
Long I've Sinned, Forgive me
