On a limb


May 13, 2006 by Isaac Hovet

Today I will silently sneak out on a limb.
I hope that the branch will not break.
I pray that it holds my weight.
I don't wish to grow or to sink into fear.
I want to experience him being near.
I pray that that is the way that I will remember
this branch I am on today.
Ask away, I may tell, but no promises. None at all.
Your question may make me fall.
As I focus on not looking down I hope I don't catch your curious frown,
but instead I ask for a smile and after a while I may shed light on this strange trial.
So thanks for looking in as I move from sin and towards him.

    Hope I’d have the courage to climb up with you. Good to hear from you again.

    Moving in faith…out on a limb…is scary but really the best place to be. It’s there where we move in faith to truly BELIEVE God is the God He says that He is…and that He can DO what He says He can do: hold us up while we peer off the end of the branch…
