Leap of Faith

Here’s a truth.

Sometimes you will find that you cannot completely figure out some situation. But you may have a feeling it’s time to do something, regardless. Then is when you have to take a leap of faith.

 A leap of faith happens when you just trust God to take care of you, and you don’t worry about what the second step will be. You fling it all out on him and jump into the first step, knowing he will catch you, set you down in the right place, and show you the next steps. Hebrews 11:1 describes it well: "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."

At this linked site, Ron Paul, the "Daddy Blogger," writes that

"in order to mature in the Christian faith, there are points in our lives where we have no option but to ... trust that God is faithful and will provide.  During and after that process, we are left with the option of either publicly praising God or keeping it to ourselves." In these situations, rather than "just leaving us as fools hanging high and dry, God would rather be glorified by providing us what it takes to get through the problem, not around or over it."  (The picture is borrowed from this site.)
I think God loves it when we can take leaps of faith. Going airborne with this kind of faith honors him and shows him our trust. He loves us for it.  

Well….he loves us anyway, already. And we don’t deserve it.

Okay, that’s a couple of truths.
