Just Fly

The question was posed,

“ What would you do if you weren’t afraid?”


I know this answer sounds so Christianese,

but it is what truly came in my heart,

because I knew if I did the following

then I would never be afraid to do anything.

My answer~

Total abandonment to God!

To trust Him fully with me, myself and I and everyone else.

I love how the following words describe this~

"To abandon ourselves to God means that we must leave ourselves alone.

We must take our hands off of ourselves,

and fall unconditionally into His hands." (Depra)

Even though I believe I have done this,

it was time to do it again

because I was still holding onto

too much of myself.

So I picked up an empty

Mussel Shell

that was still hinged together,

and stood at the water's edge.

As I prayed, I began to detach the shell,

as one side representing me

and the other side representing everything else that I am attached to.

And then it happened...

Right before the break

the shell

looked like a


Free to fly


because it was

no longer

a struggling caterpillar

crawling along the ground

dreaming about the day

it would have wings

that would set it free.

Today is the day

To open your wings


Total Abandonment

to the


who has given

you and I wings



right now


no matter what you may be feeling

no matter what you may not have

no matter what you are waiting to happen~

To detach

from whatever is weighing down you wings


attach to the One who enables you to fly


"Those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God]

like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired." Isaiah 40:31
