I tend to hedge my bets. I try not to put all my eggs in one basket. Bank the fire, backup my files, have a plan B, it's just how I do things.
And I have a feeling that this tendency of mine is exactly what God is chipping away at these days.
And do you know how frightening it is to not have a backup plan? How it feels to put those fragile little eggs in one basket, one that looks like it's sitting in the middle of the freeway?
It's like mailing off your only copy of a manuscript. It's just not something you would do if you were smart.
But God doesn't always ask us to be smart. In fact, He tells us not to lean on our own understanding.
