that step

mt. 14:29

oh that step
that first step
away from comfort and familiarity
away from safety and security
letting go of what is seen and known
and stepping out into the great unknown
where all we have to hold onto
is a voice calling out to us
inviting us into the deep
to a new level of intimacy and trust

always calling us beyond where we are
and where we have been
into something new and beautiful and alive

but it always starts with that step
that wonderfully awful step
both into and away from
that step down and out of the boat

give us the courage
and the strength
and the grace
to take it
so that we might
leave the old behind
and be taken hold of
by you in a new way
