Lord, I feel you pulling me as I stand on the edge. But I am afraid to move. Things were great the way they were. Steady after the storm. And now I feel you here, calling me out. Out of safety and into the unsure again. Pulling me off the edge. But I am afraid.

What if I fall?

Oh, but Daughter, what if you fly?

I learned that the only way that an Eagle learns that it can fly is when it is pushed off the edge. It is in that moment, as they are falling, that they learn to spread their wings. Realizing that they have capability to soar.

And what if that is what I am facing now? Haven’t I learned, when God is calling me out, that the space inbetween though it is filled with this uncertainty, and valid fear, ultimately it is the space where God is asking me to trust him more.

The space where he wants to show me that I can fly.

And moments ago, I felt the words of Hillsong sink into my heart.

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders

Let me walk upon the waters wherever you would call me

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander

And my faith will be made stronger

In the presence of my savior…
