A prayer

When my daughters were small, they liked to play a game called “Tick Tock.” I would hold one of them upside-down, by the ankles, and swing her back and forth like a pendulum. (First we moved all the living room furniture out of the way.) As she swung higher and higher, farther and farther, in the midst of her giggles she would say, “Tick … tock … tick … tock…” until finally she was swinging high enough, and I would throw her up in the air at one end of her swing, take a quick step to the side, and catch her in my arms.

I pray to have a relationship of trust like that with my Heavenly Father – when I can enter into the game and be delighted in the absolute confidence that my loving Father will always catch me.
