Points2Ponder-Taking A Chance On The Unknown

Absence of Fear...sets your feet to dancing!
Absence of Fear…sets your feet to dancing!

Sometimes, you just gotta face the fear, embrace the exhilaration and take that first step!

Point2Ponder    “When is the last time you took a chance on the unknown and just stepped out in faith?”

I have a saying that my kids have grown up with.

They call it a “Papa’s Parable” – I would be the “Papa” in the Papa’s Parable.

The saying goes like this:

FAITH FLIES IN THE FACE OF FEAR!

I have always believed that—faith steps up when fear steps in—you don’t know your character until it is challenged.

You can talk all you want about faith when you are in a situation where you are not forced to display it or exercise it!

That’s when it’s easy—

But then comes the time when—you have to step up to the plate, show ‘em what you’re made of—and demonstrate faith!

Put Feet to your Faith—and Fly!

I was once told something that has always stuck with me.

My definition of Faith is…

When you have come to the end of all  you know or think…

And you are about to step out into the unknown…

Faith is this…

Faith is knowing that one of two things will happen

With your next step…

You will either land on concrete

Or…

He will teach you to fly!

And that’s what I am about to do…

And I’m ready for either…

A sidewalk…

Or…

A flight!

Either way…HE will NOT allow me to fall!

That’s faith in a nutshell—Knowing that—

flying in the face of fear

Stepping out into the vast unknown

Taking that first step…

He will make sure that…you don’t fall!

It may be conventional—like a sidewalk.

Or…

It may be unconventional—like a flight to worlds unknown.

How can you fear when you know…

God is your pilot!
