My Part

Did I give myself wings?

Did I teach myself to fly?

Do I control the currents?

Did I create my flight plan?

Do I always feel like flying?

That would be

No, no, no, no

And no.


I can choose to use my wings.

I can exercise what I know

And learn more.

Once aloft,

The currents will

Lift me up

And carry me along.

I know some specifics

Of my itinerary.

And what I don’t know,

I will discover in time.


In faith,


I will jump off the cliff.

That’s my part.

The rest

Is out of my hands.

And that’s OK.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight (Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV).
