Could is Surrender. Surrender if Faith.

When we answer the call of Could, we surrender ourselves to Possibility. The possibility of rejection. The possibility of destruction. But also to the possibility of Love.

When we answer the call of Could, we surrender to the unknown. Surrender is Faith.


In Faith we do not get to know before we do. In Faith we do not get to see before we know. In Faith we can only trust.

I recently answered a call from Could. Following a notion and trusting in what was coming through me. I could see the path laid out. Bright and clear, as is if a long fog had been lifted. For that moment, Surrender was easy.

But as I started down the path, I met a resistance. Just big enough to make me question myself and just small enough to make me afraid of what other, larger obstacles might be waiting for me.


But Could did not promise me ease.  It did not promise me a guarantee. It only promised me access. Access to something more than beyond my fears. Access to my heart's desires.

I do not get to know before I do. And I do not get to see before I know. In Faith I can only trust.


Where in your life is fear wanting to stop you in your tracks?

Where are you holding out for guarantees before you can get moving?

Where do you need Surrender?
