Last week at dance, we tried a new lift, and I was the liftee (is that a word?). Basically, the other girls are all across the floor in a group, and I run at them. At the last second, I turn around and launch myself backwards and upwards, and they lift me over their heads. I lie horizontally as all slowly bend their knees, and then all extend and hurl me across the room. I land on my feet near to where I started and roll out of it. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to go… There is a bit of trial and error involved. Once, as I jumped on top of the girls, my head slammed into the chin of the front and center girl and knocked her over! Another time, we did it well except for the fact that I landed smack on my butt instead of my feet. In a lot of areas of dance, there is a great amount of trust involved. Trust that they will hold me up. Trust that I will launch myself high enough to give them a chance to get me on top. Trust that everyone will do their part so no one will get hurt. But people make mistakes. People will betray trust, whether they mean to or not. But God won’t. He will never, ever break a promise or betray a trust. So why don’t we always trust Him? He will love us and take care of us, but we have to be the ones to trust first.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct the paths. -Proverbs 3:5-6, KJV

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. -Jeremiah 17:7, KJV

    Amen! I’ve seen trust exercises where you are supposed to fall backward and a friend catches you from behind.
