I thank God for you and pray that you are all doing well and being spiritually fed the Word of God on a consistent basis.
Have you ever had the opportunity to do something really big and just didn't want to take a chance? Life is all about taking chances. Some chances we take may result in a bad outcome and some resulted in a good outcome. Anyway, you took a chance. There are so many of us that have let our dreams go, in fear that we will fall. Well, I say, take a chance, if you fall you've got cushion. Get back up again and try another dream or another avenue to get to your dream. As you get older, you will always have that "what if", in the back of your mind. I know a lot of people that start college with one profession in mind, and as time goes on they change their mind. Take a chance, you've cushion. I have fallen so many times, I am glad that I fall in the right spot. Just don't fall so far down that you can't get back up again.
The bible says "that faith without works is dead". It took me a while to actually figure out what God was saying to us. If you have a dream to do something that will make your life better and don't do anything, then you are not putting your faith to action. If you have faith in God, then He expects you to trust in Him to put your plan to action. Faith becomes dead if you are not working on whatever you are trusting God to do for you in your life. So here you are, you say that you have faith, but you will not take a chance, then there's no works. So faith without works is dead, and dreams and goals are never accomplished because you didn't put in the work to fulfill your dreams. If you fall on your buttocks you got cushion!
Technology has changed a lot because someone put their faith to works. Apple, IBM, cellphones, cable, DVDs, etc. Think about all the changes that people have made because they were not afraid that they might fall on their cushion. Some of them have fallen more than once, figured out what went wrong, and put their faith to work. Sure your cushion might get a little bruised, but what if it doesn't. What if your works proves to be your dream? What if you make it? What if . . . . . . ? LET US PRAY!
Heavenly Father, I thank and praise you for your love towards me. Thank you Lord that you gave me enough cushion to put my faith to work. Thank you Lord, for my dreams and my accomplishments. I thank you Lord for the things that didn't go well in my life as much as the things that did, I trust in You Lord, I know you got my back, in Jesus name, Amen.
GOD BLESS YOU!
