I’m Free Falling

12AB943C-C659-490F-A6D5-DAB995DF4B05I’m living in a season of life totally beyond my experience, understanding and education. I may have a masters degree in theology, but I’m far from mastering anything in my life right now. As a person, husband, father, and pastor I have so far to go. When you add up all my inadequacies mixed with all my physical disabilities it wouldn’t strike you as a combination for success. I’ve concluded that there is only one way to live moving forward.

I’ve chosen to completely free fall into the arms of Jesus. I’m trusting in His word to light my way. I’m trusting in His spirit to guide my every step. I’m relying on His strength to carry me forward. I’m relying on His peace to settle me when life seeks to overwhelm me. I’m trusting God for all I need as I continue taking bold, faith led steps forward.

The more I see the more I realize my total dependence on God’s grace. I can’t get out the bed without Him taking me by the hand. I can’t lead others without Him first leading me. I can’t live a stroke free life without free falling into Jesus’ arms of peace. I’ve quit trying to figure it all out so I’m totally trusting God to work it out. What about you? Are you free falling into the arms of Jesus for peace, purpose, and guaranteed success? Here is Jesus’ invitation to us all to free fall.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
