“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
I was just watching VeggieTales with my son. We watched “the one about Esther”. I can’t even imagine how scary and uncomfortable that situation was for her and for her family. Have you ever been in a situation like Esther, having to take a massive leap of faith because you knew it was the right thing to do?
For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
There are challenges all around us and endless opportunities to live our lives for God. Sometimes the things he calls us for are scary and puts us in uncomfortable situations. The reward for following His way far exceeds the easy path. God will teach us things that will change our lives forever if we just follow Him. We can’t see the end of the journey, only He can see that, but there is comfort in knowing that HE does!
Lord let me see only Your way
Teach me to love you every single day
Give me a heart of complete trust
so that when you say that I must
Do something that I don’t like
That I stand tall and drop the mic
and say guess what, I don’t care
I will do what other’s won’t dare!
Cause I have strength in God above
HE taught me with sacrificial love
and gave me hope for eternity
so I WILL do what He asks of me!
Leaps of Faith are usually scary
but I will soar and not grow weary
cause nothing on Earth can ever surpass
the trust I have that lives and lasts
and I will look at my path and say
this is what I was designed for, this today!
What if you missed your whole life plan
by standing still, not leaping, like you can
Fear doesn’t pay, so don’t miss your call
Trust in the leaps, instead of the fall.
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Was that a Swank family member cartwheeling into eternity?

It very well could have been. My husband has made over 100 jumps! He is my hero.
