It’s Friday and time for another link up with Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Friday. Friday is a time when we “write for five minutes not worrying if everything is just right.” Click HERE and join in the fun!
I have to admit the first idea that crossed my mind today when I saw Lisa-Jo’s word was Jump by Van Halen…might as well jump…go ahead and jump! You can take the girl out the 80s but you can’t take the 80s out of the girl.
Then, I started thinking about the times in my life when I finally starting taking some leaps of faith, those pivotal moments when I started living as if God was big enough to catch me when I let go. Amazing things have happened in my life each time I’ve made the choice to trust Him with the scary.
There was the time I jumped, He caught me, took me by the hand, and He showed me that spacious place David talks about in the Psalms.
There was the time I jumped and decided to pick up a pen. He showed me how much joy could be created by stringing words together on paper.
There were the times I jumped and He put me on a plane. As I rolled paint on a school wall and chased kids around an orphanage in the Dominican Republic, He showed me the meaning of life.
“You’ve got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.”~Ray Bradbury
