Falling...into peace

I received some news today that shook my usually secure world. For a brief moment in time, I felt the weight of it and let myself start to fall-to cry, to worry, to fear. Then I was given some hope.

"Strange how that it is-that sometimes something has to fall apart-for something better to fall together."

"Jesus calls me to surrender and there's nothing like releasing fears and falling into peace. It terrifies, true. But it exhilarates. This, this is what I've always wanted: this utter trust, this enlivening fall of surrender into the safe hands."
