A Leap of Faith

Trusting God that He will direct your path requires not only faith, but courage. Let me explain. Fear of the unknown is a very normal emotion because as humans, some sense of predictability is reassuring. That's why we schedule darn near everything. Watching an episode of "Parenthood' (really good show by the way), they even scheduled love making with a "funky town" calendar entry. We're so busy too that if we don't schedule everything we're afraid we might miss something.

All that said, going an entire day, let alone a month, a year, and not having any predictability is scary. That's why I say that putting all your trust in that God will, and already has directed your path requires courage.

It's one thing to have faith that it will be alright, but in the back of your mind you're racking your brain on how to fix x, y, z; how a, b, c, needs to get done in order for 1, 2, 3 to fall into place. It's nuts, and worse yet, it's a waste of time!

If God said it, He will do it. For some reason we feel the need to "help" God. Who are we to help?! Lol. He knows the best and most efficient way to bring about your destiny. He knows what road you need to go down so that you pick up 'this' skill or 'that' trait; so that you connect with 'that' person, bless 'this' person and are blessed by 'that' event. 

We're on a need-to-know basis. As time goes on and passes by, God will reveal exactly what you need to know, need to do, to make it to the next phase in your journey. "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase" ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not against planning, research, education and anything else you can do to prepare yourself and set yourself up. However we need to know that at the end of the day God has it all figured out, so when things don't pan out according to your 5-year plan, don't freak out. Be brave, cause faith will give you peace, and trust in Him will guide you through.

Bless and Love Y'all!

Stay Pretty & Precious,
