Going Out on a Limb

As up can see from the picture, we saw these “cute” bears enjoying an afternoon snack one day in the mountains.  It was amazing that we could get so close to them and take several pictures.  What was also amazing to me was their sense of balance and how the small tree (compared to others there) could hold the weight of the mother.  We watched the bears for at least 15-20 minutes and never once saw them lose their footing or seem afraid as they edged closer to the red berries.  I was also intrigued by the fact that the thin branches of the tree didn’t seem to even bend let alone break as the bears moved around.  If I only had the faith of those bears to go out on a limb so to speak, and have sure footing, knowing that the branch was not going to break.  Hopefully with time and lots of prayer, I will come to see that my Heavenly Father is that tree and that His branches can hold all the weight of my life without breaking or even bending.  Praise God! 
Going out on a limb in life is not the hard part, but trusting is.  Trust Him and “branch out”.  The farther you go, the better the view.
Peace, Kelly
