Dive

start ~

I can't dive.

The one time I jumped off a high dive I wished I knew how, because water is hard when you hit it after falling twenty feet, but otherwise I am perfectly content with doggy paddling.

One summer there were swimming lessons, and they tried to teach me how by shoving me into the water. I already wasn't on good terms after barely making it out to the raft which felt miles from shore.

God wants us to learn how. To dive in and not sit fearfully on the edge wondering what it might look like or feel like. To reach this world.

Take up your cross, and follow . . . head first.

stop
