Lean on ME

The other day, I was leaning against a wall, and I don’t recall having a single doubt or fear about the wall supporting my lean. I had total trust in its ability to uphold me. I didn’t have to prepare myself mentally for resting against it, nor did my leaning require a leap of faith. It was a natural and normal expectation for me to receive the wall’s support.

One definition of lean is: “to rely on or derive support from.” What exactly was I leaning or relying on anyway? Was it a chunk of matter, or something more? Actually, I was trusting in a structure that had been correctly designed according to mathematical, architectural, and construction principles. 

A verse from the book of Proverbs reads: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding” (3:5). Leaning on divine Principle and divine Love, God, to support us should be just as natural and normal as leaning against a correctly constructed wall. God’s embrace is at one with and therefore ever-supportive of His own radiant image and likeness, man.
