“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.” Isaiah 26:3,4
One of our children went through a “Trust fall” phase. The crazy thing is, she was in college when she chose to initiate this challenge! 😉
Here’s how it went…upon walking into a room where we were all gathered and involved in tasks of some sort…she would shout, “Trust fall!” The closest family member would then hustle to catch her as she fell backwards with feet firmly planted on the ground.
I’m pleased to say, no one was injured during the process, although there were some very close calls! This team building exercise brought both laughter and lessons into our home.
As parents, we pray regularly for discernment and the ability to parent with love, grace and wisdom…knowing we will most definitely fall short at times.
I have good news! Our Heavenly Father will never fall short. We have access to God’s throne through Jesus’s life, death and resurrection. There is forgiveness, redemption and reconciliation because of the cross…this we can trust! So, whether you are tired, weak, exhausted, suffering, feeling down/feeling let down OR if this happens to be a season in which you are thriving…place your faith and trust in the strength of His love and fall into your Father’s arms today.
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
