Two Words. Lots of Fun.

    Filed Under: FaithDirection

    Dear Church:

    Standing several stairs below Spencer, our 17th month old, I had a moment the other day. I outstretched my arms in a suggestive you-should-jump-and-I'll-catch-you pose and after a small hesitation, he launched himself forward towards me.

    I caught him easily, swung him around and we laughed together. He wanted to do it again.

    There are two words God's speaking to me lately and it's this: Trust Me.

    It's far too easy for us not to do this, isn't it? It's much easier to say you're trusting, but really to hold back or withdraw because you don't know what's about to happen. It's easier to sit down on the stair, instead of to step. It's easier to doubt. To wait and see. To let someone else. To make excuses. To blame. To sit down. To not jump.

    But that's not what He's asking of us!

    No, He's standing in our future, just out of reach, suggesting we jump. He's asking you and me to step out even when we don't know what's waiting for us. To launch out into Him, into His Grace, into our inability ...and to find Him there. He giving us glimpses of what He sees when He looks into our futures and, armed with that potential alone, to go where we haven't gone before.

    Think about the step in front of you.

    It's daunting.
    It's fraught with unknowns.
    It's not predictable.

    But it's also undeniably what He wants.
    It's your life lived to it's fullest.
    And it's the key to the future you desire.

    Thankfully, friends, our God can be trusted. In fact He's already in your future and my future and He's there making sure that when we step out, He'll catch. Prov. 3:5-6, while very familiar, holds precious truths. You see, to trust Him is to step out acknowledging He'll be there, making your ways successful. It's not trust if you or I play it safe and don't move.

    Trust is the step in the direction you're not sure about but that He's leading you in. I think I'll step. I think I'll trust. You should too. 

    My bet? We'll want to do it again!
