Leaning into God

God of this new moment,
I lean with all my weight
and Your Providence holds me up.
Sometimes this leaning is
uncomfortable
and scary.
It feels risky
and new.

It means taking on a new posture.
It means believing I am worthy.
Of being held up
by your love.

Yet only when I lean
can I feel the support
of many hands and shoulders,
words of wisdom,
encouraging glances,
fingers reaching to clasp mine
and walk forward together
with openness and courage.

Beloved, be with all of us in our
leaning,
leaning into something new
leaning with trust on one another
leaning in toward the light.

Amen.
