>You remember that big-hit song in the 80s, “Lean on Me”? 
“Just call on me brother when you need a hand, we all need somebody to lean on…” 
It was a remake but man, was it a hit. 
“Lean on me” is also a cliche. I tell others, “Hey, man, lean on me anytime,” and others tell me the same.
But sometimes it is so tough that I need to be absorbed by something stronger, steadier, more stable.
Leaning on humans is good, but not enough.
That’s when it calls for a lean IN.
Doesn’t God tell me I am his lamb? his child? and under His wing?
All those metaphors are more about leaning in, than leaning on.
I can lean ON when I am equal to another, you know, shoulder to shoulder.
But when I feel small & weak, I need to lean in to God.
Absorbed by his love and protected by the shelter of his wings.
Where I am the helpless–foldng and buckling into the arms–of the Helper.
I’ve had to lean in to God more and more. Maybe you have too.
