"When nothing is sure, everything is possible."
If you ask most people, they usually admit to having a ‘gut feeling’ about something. Especially when it comes to something that really matters. Whether they trust that gut feeling or not all comes back to fear. Fear of failing. Fear of disappointing someone else. Fear of judgement.
Take the Leap of Faith. God has been sending me signs for weeks. Trust God! At the end of the day, life is a journey. It’s a journey that delivers incredible highs and amazing lows but if you remain true to yourself, you can’t really go wrong. The next time you find yourself questioning if you should take your leap of faith, shuffle aside the fear, be brave, be bold and do these 3 things:
#1: Listen to the voice of God!
Sometimes, you need to get away from everyone else’s advice and opinions and just be alone! Get a journal! Listen to the voice of God! Removing yourself for a couple of hours by going for a simple walk will help you to figure out what that little voice in your head is saying. What is your gut trying to tell you? Have faith and trust in what your gut is trying to tell you..
#2: Be true to yourself
“You can’t be good at what you’re not passionate about” – Alisa Camplin. I couldn’t shake that line. It’s simple but it’s the best piece of advice anyone could give you. Accept your true path in life is often half the battle. Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
#3: Take the Leap of Faith
‘For he who loves God without faith reflects on himself, while the person who loves God reflects on God.’ (p. 40) So, yes, the leap of faith is terrifying. It wouldn’t be much of a leap is it wasn’t. It would be more of a hop of faith. Rather, it is a complete sacrificing of the personal to the universal. It is a leap that ‘must be made continually on the strength of the absurd, though in such a way, be it noted that one does not lose finitude but gains it all of a piece.
Take the leap of Faith! Listen to the voice of God! Be True to yourself.
