Take a “two minute” time out and ponder this: JUMP! That’s right. JUMP!

You know that feeling that you have when you are thinking about doing something, but you can’t quite commit? Like a young child that has to be persuaded to take that first jump in the pool, we find ourselves questioning if we should take the risk?

In our social media saturated culture, it is easy to spend our time watching others grow and mature in their faith and love for the Lord, rather than opening our Bibles and being in the Word ourselves. When it comes to being in the word, do you find yourself standing “on a cliff” with your toes dangling over the edge, fearful of taking that first step?

Open my eyes so that I can see all the wonderful things in your teachings. ~ Psalm 110:18 ERV

Fear can prevent us from experiencing the greatest adventure this life will ever offer, knowing Jesus and the grace with which He came to save us. God did not promise an easy life. He said it would take courage and determination to enter eternal life.

When God calls me to dare greatly, I’m going to hang on tight to HIS hand and jump in with both feet. I hope you will, too.

Are you standing on the edge watching others jump in? Will you jump in too? Let’s Persist & Pursue. Let’s jump in and experience God's goodness. Together. Make a splash!

What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived — the things God has prepared for those who love him. ~ 1st Corinthians 2:9

 


Persist & Pursue: The First Step

Take a “two minute” time out and ponder this:

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps ~ Proverbs 16:9

Prepare your ways before God. Be a faithful child of God. Appeal to His word. Live by Faith. Pray without ceasing. Love God. Love yourself. Love others.

Prepare your ways before the Lord and seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Desire to do everything in light of God’s word. Do not worry about your earthly problems, rather seek God’s wisdom through prayer.

Let's Persist & Pursue. Together. In God’s Word.
