on flying kites and letting go

surrender - to lay it down

when it

really means everything

because surrender calls you to let go

of the kite and the string

in a face-down

all-out

refusal to grapple with the Divine

surrendered

until that string is again

pressed into your open

hands by God Himself

and you are pushed

to a grassy hill

wind rustling through your hair

your Shepherd’s voice in my ears:

FLY

but, Child-

be still

until you feel

the blowing of His Spirit

wait for it

surrendered

trust that He’s preparing

that kite

the breeze

the perfect meadow

and your precious heart to take in the beauty

of His plans unfolded

in His time

soon enough, it’ll be time to fly, Child

soon enough
