Finding yourself—the true you, the authentic you—requires wading.
Wading into the Great Wide Open, with no discernible idea as to what you may find.
The beauty of the Great Wide Open is that there are dreams to awaken and promises yet to unfold.
Sometimes, however, when you wade deeper below the surface, it is not readily apparent that you do not wade alone.
That is why the wading requires Trust.
Trust that the waters are not too treacherous.
Trust that the waters are not too deep.
Trust that there are life preservers and lifeguards waiting to spring into action at the first sign of trouble.
Wading to find the true you, the authentic you, means Trusting.
Trusting that our Heavenly Father holds you protectively as you plunge deeper and deeper into the abyss.
Trusting that our Heavenly Father provides buoyancy in the love and support of others.
The Great Wide Open is where you will be found. The true you, the authentic you.
The wading is often demanding. (Trust is demanding.)
The wading is often exhausting. (Trust is exhausting.)
The wading is often filled with struggle. (Trust is filled with struggle.)
The wading often leaves you with a limp.
But the wading is the only way to move past the Great Wide Open into the Crystal Clear Lake.
The Crystal Clear Lake of healing.
The Crystal Clear Lake of abundance.
The Crystal Clear Lake of joy unspeakable.
Will you trust Him today with your journey?
The journey to find the true you, the authentic you?
He is there in the Great Wide Open. He is there in the Crystal Clear Lake.
Most importantly, He is there wherever you are.
The true you, the authentic you.
