Have you ever planned something for so long, that it seemed like it would never actually happen?
Have you ever daydreamed about something so many times, that it seemed impossible?
Have you ever researched and thought about and talked about and worked toward a big goal and then when it finally came time to jump, you suddenly got nervous?
This very morning.
God has a mission for me and my little girl. I know it. She knows it. He couldn’t be much clearer if He wrote it in the sand for me. I have been standing by the edge of the pool, waiting to jump in. I have been standing in the storm-tossed boat, hearing my Savior tell me to step out of the boat, but I have been too scared.
But, guess what? “God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
God knows. He knows what He wants me to do. And He knows how it will turn out. I can crouch down in this boat forever, watching the waves, seeing the dangers, worrying about the what-ifs.
And living a boring, relatively safe life. Or I can trust the One who has brought me this far. I can trust the One who knows how it all turns out and who controls how it all turns out. I can say yes and get out of the boat.
This is gonna be fun.
