In Him-We Can Take Risks

As I sat watching my son this past weekend, playing with 1 year old Desaray - it was so heartwarming to see the total trust she has in him, in his arms she was safe as she could be.

So she took risks and leaned out, falling backwards with shrieks of glee, trusting that her Daddy's arms would catch her, so she was completely free!

This is the same love that flows from our Father above, His arms wrapped around us, His hands holding us secure, so that we can take risks, grow and stretch when we're in Him, trusting that He will keep us from harm.

And I learned that trust when Jesus came into my heart, the kind of safety that allows you to risk new things and to grow, for as I grew in God's word, He also was preparing me for the greatest love I would ever know.

He'd swept my heart clean, got rid of the dust and debris I had carried in my heart, and now it was time to fill it back up, to begin again with a fresh new start.

Every step of the way I would go to Him and ask, "is this really true?" - and I'd feel that God was looking down with a smile, answering, "yes, this is the one I picked for you."

So, trusting in Him, I fell completely in love, sure that this was what God had meant it to be, and every time I look at you my heart overflows with such joy at this gift of love that's been given to you and me.

There is such freedom to know that I'm safe, that this love is so big that we both can grow, and taking risks is ok, dreams really do come true, and I know it because I have you!!
