Sometimes it’s tempting to take the safe, comfortable road. The what ifs of taking a leap seem too overwhelming, too uncertain.
There are no guarantees. What if you fail?
That dream you’ve held close for years – what if you take a leap only to look like you are crazy? What if it doesn’t work?
Not everyone is willing to take a risk, to try something new. The familiar feels so much more secure. But that dream, it just won’t go away. Sometimes you know you are called to something.
When the right time comes, will you leap?
If you don’t, will the what ifs of today turn into different what ifs many years later? “What if I had tried? I wonder…”
But maybe, if you are truly called to something, it’s not really a risk at all. Maybe what we are quick to label as a risk is actually the smartest move we could ever make. Maybe we shouldn’t call it a risk at all.
Maybe we should call it Faith.
