Take the Leap

pic_135_clean_790What keeps you from taking the big leaps in life?  Many (including myself) often keep things safe and never really make major changes.  We fear the unknown and keep everything the same because it may feel safe to us.  Taking the leaps of life can be scary, but think about skydiving.  What are some reasons that scare us about jumping out of an airplane (besides the obvious)?  What if the chute does’t open?  What if something happens to the chute as it comes out?  What happens if I get blown off course?  We can “what if” everything in life, because the unknown scares us.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:6-7

Sometimes we need to take those leaps and let God take over.  We can suffocate ourselves by hiding and asking “what if” about everything.  A phrase that maybe over used but very real to many of us today…”let go and let God.”  I hope this week you can set aside your fears and give them to God.  Take the leap!
