"I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on.  And there will be an end to these troubles, but until that day comes, still I will praise You." (Matt Redman)

Woah.

Hold on a minute. 

So, ummmmm...

Yikes.A.Bee.

Here's the deal with taking a step of faith (or a great big giant leap of faith)...  It sounds really good in the planning stage, when both feet are still on solid ground.  You get a really great sense of clarity.  You know with absolutely no doubts that the next step is the exact right one.  Just like when Dawson moved to Los Angeles to be a superstar film-maker.  Or when Joey and Pacey took that summer sailing trip (oh man, that was a good summer).

And then you actually cross the line.  Take the step.  Jump forward a bit. 

And you feel INSANE.

You can't see the yellow brick road anymore.  Or even the next brick.  Was that a tornado that just swept through?  What in the world just happened?

But without the faith, what good is the step?  Faith is being sure of what we do not see, right?  So you step, and hope and trust and pray that every tiny little step after lands on solid ground.  And you believe God when He tells you that it will.   

Because He is good, and it will be good.

Chances are waiting to be taken, and all I need...
