Change is the ultimate trust fall

Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds. Matt 6:26 (Message)

Change can feel like all the ground has come out from underneath because there is no predictable future to step into. Because God is so big and cares so much about each one of us, we really can be careless in his care. “What’s next” is where it’s always been: in God’s hands. We don’t know where change will take us, things might not go we envision them, we might hit storms, we might make unplanned stops, but God really does have us, we just have to spread our wings and fly.

Lord, when I can’t feel the ground underneath me, help me to fly.
