(I just wrote this for our email update. . . . but I've included more photos here on the blog.)
During Kriz (the two week training time in Bible and theology), Matt led the students in a trust fall. I just spent some time looking through the photos from Kriz - but it was the photos he took of the trust fall that struck me the most. He took a photo of about half the students before they fell and another one mid-fall. I began to notice a pattern:
As each person
prepared to fall,
their faces were filled
with a mixture of
But . . .
once they made the decision
to fall . . .
and they took a
step of faith
past the point of no return
Their faces changed to reflect
As I sat and reflected on what I saw in the photos I felt the Lord was asking,
"Isn't it the same with you?"
And I had to admit it was true.
How often do I let myself stand "on the top of the wall," my heart filled with fear and anxiousness, wondering if God really will come through for me.
But once I step out in faith, trusting God's power, His goodness and His love, the fear melts away and is replaced with his peace!
Oh that I will trust Him more quickly each time!
