Trusting the Catcher

Sunday, June 02, 2013

Trust is the basis of life. Without trust, no human being can live. Trapeze artists offer a beautiful image of this. Flyers have to trust their catchers. They can do the most spectacular doubles, triples, or quadruples, but what finally makes their performance spectacular are the catchers who are there for them at the right time in the right place.

Much of our lives is flying. It is wonderful to fly in the air free as a bird, but when God isn't there to catch us, all our flying comes to nothing. Let's trust in the Great Catcher.

Henri J. M. Nouwen

I also think in our on going journey to living a healthy lifestyle that we need to trust the process. Our Creator is with us and also our team mates. May we learn to fly!
