HERE I am.
It has been a long journey here, but a wild and wonderful one…..full of runs on turning trails, walks on meandering paths, falls on unexpected objects, and quiet moments of jaw-dropping wonder.
I often could see in the distance this precipice on which I now stand, knowing I wanted to maybe be there (here) and maybe….take that leap. Several people told me of it: “You need to…”; “You should..”; “How about starting…”.
Starting. That IS often the hard part about things on this journey of life.
But, I was once told by a friend not to think of “starting” anything as if it were some big leap into an unknown abyss, but to think of each thing as a step in an unfolding path. So now I try to see each place of growth, each treasure I take in along the way, each person who joins me…..and sometimes leaves, as those very steps in an unfolding dance.
The dance is life.
My partner is the One Who has won and is winning my heart.
I am learning to let Him lead by resting, leaning on Whom I am learning Him to be – and that is my ALL.
My eyes are on gazing into His……..if I do not, I lose footing.
“I will instruct you and teach you in the way that you should go. I will guide you with my eye” – He promises.
So here I stand with Him. “Starting” a space on the web, jumping off the edge of this precipice……a new dance.
I do not know how far below the “end” is.
Could I hit the bottom at 1 foot or thousands?
I do not know…..But I do know that
He is my wind, my feathers, my compass.
He is just leading me to move and tells me to spread my wings.
So here I go: toes on the edge, eyes waiting on Him, arms open wide, and…….
(Are you coming with me?)
“They that wait upon the Lord…shall mount up with wings as eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”
