There was a game my friends always played on the playground when I was a little kid. They would see if they could fall completely backwards and trust another person to catch them. If they stepped in a wrong direction or stood up, they lost. But if they trusted the person behind them enough, they would fall completely backwards and were caught. We called it a “trust fall.”
I was always terrified of this game because I never really believed whoever was behind me would catch me. After weeks of my friends challenging me to do it, I decided to give it a try. However, it took me so long to finally fall, that by the time I did, my friends had already moved on to another activity. The result ended in me hitting the ground.
Sometimes, I think we view God that way. We aren’t sure that we can completely trust Him. We don’t really believe that He has it all under control. But this cannot be farther from the truth. While other people and our own selves will fail us, we serve a God that never will.
I called this sight “Trust Falls” because one of the hardest things for me to do throughout my life has been to completely fall in surrender to God’s plan for my life. However, time and time again He has proved Himself to be faithful and has been right behind me to catch me when I fall, and lead me to what He has next.
It is not always easy to completely trust God, but every time I have been willing to fall, I have been amazed at everything He had to show me. I like to write out what I am learning as I trust Him more in the form of devotionals. This sight is filled with the devotionals I have written to myself as reminders of what God showing me. I pray that one may encourage you as well. That you will know that you are not alone, and that you are loved beyond anything you could ever imagine by your Creator. I am praying for you today, that you will experience the freedom that comes from trusting God with everything.
