Standing at the end of the pier looking at the water. Kids running and jumping past him as he stands there scared to death to jump. Daddy is in front of him, encouraging him to jump, it will be okay. Minutes pass by and he still stands there, crying, " I can't, I'm scared.!"
All the while daddy is saying, Yes you can't it's okay. You can trust us."
Finally, after minutes of standing there, shaking, crying, He jumps. Taking that leap of faith.
After the jump, laughing getting back on the pier and jumping again and again.
How often are we this way in our walk with the Lord.
He is standing there with arms open telling us to trust Him.
We stand there shaking, crying, scared.
We stand there, not trusting.
Yet, how often do we take that leap and then come back laughing, doing it again and again?
Take that Leap!
