Standard

Good morning, DearHeart.

Sometimes, there are no words to help one’s courage. They just have to jump. There has to be a decision point – a crossroads … where we decide we will trust where Love takes us … where we fear more of staying stuck in this place, this dry cracked riverbed of gloom, than stepping out where lush uncharted territory awaits us. It seems to me, that when life gets too controlled, there is less and less life left to learn. And, we lose thought that even petty, daily life are not without meaning.

All of the minutes can be used as life’s growth energy … the ragged, the jagged, and the lifting and soaring.

The Holy Spirit calls … saying … “any wound you carry can be healed … new life follows the old … awaiting”. It takes superhuman courage to trust that there is deeper meaning to the longing and discontent you have been through.

“Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:13-14, NLT)

Our confidence and hope lies in the Lord’s presence with us. He is for us and while life may not always deliver good or pleasant news, we are assured of the Lord’s goodness; here as the soles of our feet feel the soil of this earth.

In writing this psalm, David reminds us to take in the wonders of God’s grace –

His beauty,

His protection, and

His goodness towards us.

Fully assured of Who held the future, David was enabled to hold on bravely and with courage. He was able to wait patiently for God to unfold his future. He garnered courage to leap.

God is plotting for our joy. The storyline He has written for our life contains joy. We may not see it in this moment, but it is there, waiting to be released into our life … be ready to pounce, though. He may ask us to jump for it.

Wake up.

Leap with courage.

Go.
