I have always wanted to skydive. I have always wanted to have that thrill of falling through the air, and at the last second, pull that cord and just float through the clouds, amazed that “ I did that!” Now, since I’m a little older and a little more cautious, I just wonder if I would be brave/crazy enough to even jump out of the plane!
But I have realized something very recently. Ever since my relationship with God became real, genuine, and intimate, I HAVE been skydiving! Jumping out into the unknown for the last seventeen years, diving through health problems, plummeting through heartbreak, and screaming through huge obstacles.
Some people may think people who love God lead boring, uneventful, unadventurous lives. But I know that the people who really walk with Him would say the exact opposite!
People with chronic illness are diving out into the pain of knowing things may never get any better.
Godly single women are bungee jumping through this crazy, morally corrupt world, desperately hanging on to the promises of God for their lives.
And the list goes on and on.
And it isn’t bravery that those people really display. It is faith. Walking into the unknown, all the while having a modicum of peace within us, innately knowing that everything will be okay in the end.
THAT is skydiving!!!!!!
