He slowly drew a line in the sand
He looked at me
I looked back…my expression making it clear I needed an explanation
He asked me to step over the line
Leave what I know?
Leave the “places” and “ways” I have met with Him, my Savior, for years?
With thanks for my visual relationship with Him, I “looked” at where we have met these last years
– the still pool of water where I have found stones of wisdom,
– the open green grass where I have seen my family, the sisters I serve, and myself dance and play
– all that I knew of my relationship with Him
How could I step over?
How could I give up what I KNOW for what I DON’T?
“Do you TRUST Me?” He asked.
“YES!” I replied
However, I still could not move
Could not or Would not?
Hoping for a distraction…something to give me time to think over my options
He just waited
Thinking back to how He has guided me and telling my heart what my head knew (He knows best and has a plan for me)…I gave in
With COURAGE from Him and FAITH and TRUST in Him I stepped over the line
This was not a confidant leap
This was a small, timid step
I remember forcing myself not to look back but to look in His eyes
Although physically small, this was a huge step of faith
I was filled with excitement and anxiety
I told my husband and a few friends…
“I stepped over the line! But…I have no idea where I am going!”
Joy and fear resided in my voice and heart
I was TRUSTING in Him big time
This occurred weeks ago…
