Sticky Hands: Take A Leap Of Faith!

As I’m typing this, my 3 year old is jumping off of the love seat onto pillows that he has gathered into a pile on the floor. (My husband hates when he does this, but I let him. Shh… 😉 ) He has no worry, no fear, and is completely enthralled in pure giddiness. (If that’s not a word, I just made it up… Because it perfectly describes him right now!)

My friend Julie took a leap a few years ago... out of a perfectly good airplane. I could also use a lesson from Julie...

I feel as though I could use a lesson from my little guy. Lately, I feel like God is gearing me up for something. Some of it I know already, but I just feel like there is more. I’m amped up and very excited… but also scared. The unknown kind of freaks me out a little. Like when you’re expecting your first child and you have no idea what it would truly be like to be a mother, but you think you do. You feel all that wonder and adoration for someone you’ve never officially met and have only felt growing within you. You worry, “What if I mess this up? What if I fail?” but at the same time “Thank you Lord for this wonderful opportunity, I will be eternally grateful!”

That’s where I am now…

I just glanced over to my little boy again and he is laughing hysterically, jumping into the air, and falling semi-gracefully on his cushions. With each leap he takes I feel God speaking to me… “It’s your turn Angie. I’ll be here for you to land on. Trust me. Jump! Have faith!”

What about you? Is there anything you need to leap into with faith right now? Pray for me, and I’ll pray for you.

1, 2, 3…. JUMP!!!

  • Let’s take that leap together, after all the only thing to fear is not taking the leap in the first place, who knows where God would have taken us if we didn’t jump…..Tell Tommy to move over, we made need those cushions…..But I’m sure the jump will be well worth it…..I’m excited for what God has in store for the two of us…LET’S DO THIS!!!!!

    Profoundly touched something deep within me, not even sure what it is that God is targeting… but He’s definitely breaking something open to new possibilities.
