You are like a bird. You are small, but your world is big. You have the grand ability to fly wherever you want to go, and I hope you take the leap.
As you leave the nest with a wanderer’s heart, do not be discouraged by those who expect you to have a five-year-plan or those who tell you to get your head out of the clouds, because you have a kindred spirit in the Holy Spirit. A Spirit who blows where she wishes and you hear her sound, but you don’t know where she comes from or where she is going. The Spirit is working where she chooses, even if others don’t see it, even if you don’t see it, so ride the wind. Breathe in deeply grace, and sigh out relief. The Spirit will carry you.
As you stretch out your wings to fly away, I pray you soar on wings like eagles, as one who trusts in the Lord, the one who makes all things new. If you’re not sure what to pray, Anne Lamott, a wanderer like yourself, said there’s only three prayers we really need to know: “Thanks, wow, and help.”
Let me say the first prayer for you. Thanks, God, for a wanderer’s heart. Wow, surrender feels a lot like soaring. Help us fly.
