As a parent I think, "good grief, what have I done to make this child doubt I will catch them?!" But as a child of God....I get it.
You want me to do what?! The longer I stand on what I assume is solid ground and try to reason through all the scenarios of what could go wrong, the more doubt pulls me down to stay right where I am.
But then, remember... remember Who He Is. Remember all the times He has made good on His promises. Indeed, "'tis so sweet to trust in Jesus" just as the old hymn says. It's sweet, like the thrill of plunging into a deep, cool pool, and safely emerging within loving arms and a smile that says, "you did it!"
