NEW PAINTING - "The Step of Faith"
I know how difficult it is to take a leap into the unknown, into an area that seems so uncertain and unreliable, even scary ... a step that kicks us out of the familiar and safe and reliable. Yet this is the exact move that so many of us need to make at this time - a plunge into the unknown and the unfamiliar. Yes, it is scary, but it is also a leap filled with expectancy and mystery and excitement - a leap of faith. Stepping out in faith requires us to trust God above our feelings and circumstances. It is actually the only way to live a meaningful and significant life that touches- and helps transform the lives of those around us.
I wish to encourage you today to take that leap of faith no matter what your present circumstances attempt to tell you. Step out! Allow Jesus to prepare a path for you where there seems to be no path at all. Step out with expectancy and trust that your Lord is your Guide and your Help.
For we live by faith, not by what we see with our eyes (2 Corinthians 5:7).
Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for (Hebrews 11:1).
