Cherokee Legend

Cherokee Legend

Do you  know the legend of the Cherokee Indian youth's rite of  Passage?

His father takes him into  the forest, blindfolds him and leaves him alone.  He is  required to sit on a stump the whole night and not remove the  blindfold until the rays of the morning sun shine through it.  He cannot  cry out for help to anyone. 

Once he survives the night, he is a MAN.

He cannot tell the other boys of this experience, because each lad must come into manhood on his  own.

The boy is naturally terrified. He can hear all kinds of  noises. Wild beasts must surely be all around him . Maybe even some human might do him
harm. The wind blew the grass and earth, and shook his stump, but he sat stoically, never removing the  blindfold. It would be the only way he could  become a man!
Finally,  after a horrific night the sun appeared and he removed his  blindfold.

It was then that he  discovered his father sitting on the stump next to him.   
He had been at watch the  entire night, protecting his son from harm.

We, too, are never alone.   
Even when we don't  know it, God is watching over  us, Sitting on the stump  beside us. 
When trouble comes, all  we have to do is reach out to Him.

Moral of the  story:
Just because you  can't see God,
Doesn't mean He is not there.
"For we walk by  faith, not by  sight."
