“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith.” Hebrews 12:1-2
I recently read my very first post on my blog and nothing seems to have changed. This life we live essentially is a trustfall – for you, for me, for all of us that put our hope in something that is unseen. Here is that post – trustfall
Four summers ago I stared at my blog and wondered what name I wanted to give to it, because I thought that be important. It would be a constant reminder to me of why I do the things that I do. I settled on “Trustfall” because a life lived in a foreign country is always going to be founded on trust that God is who He says He is and will catch me with each cliff that I step off of. Most of the time there is an element of blind faith that enters into the path of obedience. And this weekend, I sat in church and listened to a message that resonated in my heart. Resonated with the fact that I am called to run a race and not just remain on the treadmill in training. And so my eyes focus ahead of me, feeling as if I am at that cusp of the trust fall again. Feeling as if there is much unknown around the bend. And still, I run. Eyes focused forward. Trusting. And it is with that that I step into whatever God has for me in October. I look to Him, the author and finisher of our faith to set the road before me, to put the boards in place , to take that walk of trust. Let’s all take that leap of faith this month and trust that God is who He says He is an amidst the chaos of life, He is able.
