First of all – if you looked at the schedule, you’ll notice that I messed up the days of the break – yeah. Me and numbers…well, sorry guys. We are back on track today with Day 32 on Nov 29 🙂
Daily Interrupted Challenge:
Step out in faith.
Is there something God has been nudging you to do in your heart? Is He whispering something that you’re trying to ignore because it’s too scary? Step out in faith today. Make a move. Trust God. You don’t have to know all the particulars or details about how it is going to work out. Just do it.
Day 32: Off the Platform
If you ever get the chance to do a zipline, I would HIGHLY recommend to do this. It will help you conquer your fears and make you feel like a bird flying through the air! I did one in college and again a few years ago with Brian.
The story of Jen and their friends on the zipline is hilarious because I can see the 300+ pound football player flying on a zipline and the fear of the guide as this massive man comes flying at him like crazy!!!
I can also remember that first time jumping off the platform. There is an unknown. You know that you have to do it, but really?? It’s kind of like jumping off the diving board for the first time after you’ve just completed swimming lessons. It takes courage and you just pray that you will survive.
Isn’t that what God does to us sometimes? We have to take a leap of faith and go out into the unknown. And we don’t have the blueprints or the map giving turn by turn directions. We just have to go.
That’s what Brandon and Jen had to do when leaving their church for a new journey that God had set out for them. It would have been easy to say, “Hey, we are leaving to go here (insert name of church, etc).” But, they didn’t know what they were leaving for. They knew that God was calling them, but it was rather blurry and complicated.
God loves to take over in the blurry and complicated times of our lives. It’s then when He can show up and show off what HE does best!
When we result to worrying about our future and all of the what ifs of life, this is His response:
31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. [Matthew 6: 31-34 NIV]
Whatever you may be thinking about in your own life – I pray that you have the courage to step out in faith today – jump off the diving board, leave the platform. There is such freedom and love waiting from our heavenly Father – JUST FOR YOU!
