Free Fall or Floating

Yesterday we considered the ways we try to assure our own safety rather than trusting God completely for our security.  Pastor Randy told about a swimmer who always kept one foot on the bottom of the pool.  From the surface it looked like the person was freely swimming.  In truth the swimmer was always reaching for the bottom. In this way, the swimmer wasn't totally involved in "swimming".  In fact, the momentum was restricted, because the limb reaching for the bottom wasn't available to kick and move freely through the water.  

God invites us to float (or fall) freely through time and space, especially when we are in the "pool" of loving God and serving others.  

In what ways to you try to assure your own stability or security?  What might happen if you stopped doing that?  Would you free fall or float?
