Learning to Swim in Hawaii

While swimming in a lava tube cave,  Jeremiah looked up at me and said,” It is so easy to swim now, I do not see how it was so hard before”.  Just last May he had to dog-paddle hard to keep his head above water. He could not make it haft way across the pool. But now he has learned to trust the water to hold him up, with just the slightest movement he can stay afloat.  And so it is with our walk of faith.  When we started out last May, I was “dog-paddling hard”  not quite trusting God to hold us up.  I wanted to see that full itinerary…. but now I know God will hold us up, I can truly rest in Him – and it feels so good. God taught me to swim while in Hawaii!!
