Not really a poem but collective thoughts.

We all have heard of the team building exercise where we fall backwards and allow a team member to catch our fall...I sometimes relate this to faith and our trust in the Lord in His care for our loved ones and our own lives.

I believe there are levels of 'faith.' So we see doubting Thomas and Peter walking on water from the levels exhibited in the Bible.

For my own life, I have lived in a state of falling backwards for years (not seeing the future/just reliant on Him). So it's not sin I speak of in 'falling backwards,' but the 'building' of trust that the Lord will handle things with or without efforts on our part. Did my Mom and I beat cancer? I know the Lord removed that hurdle in our lives...yet, what of tomorrow? So many loving Christians will die of cancer or other ailments/accidents early in life ... while remaining victorious in Him.

For many of us, a great deal of our lives, we might live with one foot in His Rest and one foot outside (fighting 'bad' incorrectly as I have fell guilty of again and again). As we grow though -- we learn to fall backwards and live our lives without seeing the future and without our own reliance or thoughts in dissecting the past and present, but in constant prayer for His vision for us, His wisdom and falling backwards in His Almighty arms.

Psalm 4: 8 ...

" I go to bed and sleep in peace, because, Lord, only You keep me safe. "

Yes this fits!

There is no fear of the darkness or closing our eyes. Full trust!
