Taking a Leap is Hard

I hate danger! yellowDanger

I really do.

No roller coasters for this guy. No sky diving. No scuba diving. No fast driving. No heights. No zip-lining. No riding fast on a bike. No eating spicy foods. No looking over the edge on an elevator.

I can imagine that taking the first step when you’re doing any of those things is crazy hard.

I can relate to the idea and notion that taking a leap hard.

Quite a few times in my life, I have taken leaps.

  • When I’ve left jobs to pursue other jobs. 
  • When I’ve moved my family to pursue those jobs.
  • When I left my last position to start a brand new organization with no financial safety net, no 6-8 months of financial backing in the bank.
  • Now that I’m leading a team of people to start a church in Central Michigan.

Taking a Leap is Hard…But it’s worth it.

Especially when you know that what you are leaping towards is what God has called you to do. That makes the difference. Not that it makes it any easier to take the step. Gosh, that step is hard. It’s really easy to talk about doing something.

SO EASY. taking-the-leap

To just dream and never pursue those dreams. To just wish things were different and never do anything about it. But, when you know you’ve heard from God and you have affirmation from scripture and others in your life, it’s so worth it.

But, I find so much joy in Joshua 1:6 & 7

” Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them. Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go”.

Don’t get me wrong, it will be hard. Taking the leap is never easy and you really have to make sure you know that God is calling you to do what your about to do, but if He has…

Take the Leap.
