We’ve all experienced where we ought to do something but for some reason, we hesitated, justified ourselves out of doing so. Some of us even found ourselves having the Gideon’s Syndrome = He’s a character in the Bible whom God told to do something but due to his fear continuously ask for signs, despite the previous one being revealed…. “so I can know it’s your will Lord…” He justifiably kept saying.
I find myself too often, allowing my skepticism to get in the way of me following to the end my desires, plans. I either do the opposite of what I need to do, postpone it for another day- which we all know by doing so, “tomorrow becomes indefinite”. I sit around and wait for signs after signs rather than just take that leap of faith and ‘Just do it ‘
I am learning that taking a leap of faith is just that- leap. it is not to figuring before leaping how i’m going to take that first step, do I have the right shoes on, where am I going to land—for those of you who overthink like me- get this! Some believe it to be a virtuous act characterized by strength of soul and spirit, whereas others skeptically define it as inner trust and confidence. The reason I used the word ‘Skeptically’ is cause it is very difficult if not challenging at times to trust in our own strength and abilities, hence why we must push ourselves to go beyond and see where we will land, after taking that leap. No matter what your definition of faith is- it is essential that we attain a personal willingness to take a chance at life!. We must trust our abilities, strength and our individuality. After the leap, you might end up:
wouldn’t you want to find out? I sure would love to know…………….(leaping out- taking my own advice).
