Nothing happens until you step out and take action.
Going after your dreams or pursuing your goals can feel like jumping out of an airplane or leaping off of a cliff, but nothing significant was ever achieved in life without making a risky move.
Do you dream of painting in a style you’ve never achieved before? Do you long to publish a book? Do you want to make movies that impact people and change the world? A dream that is bigger than you or that seems impossible to achieve was probably not your idea in the first place.
Often, the dreams that matter the most to you were put inside of you by the Creator and Designer of your soul. When you take the risk and step into those dreams, He’s with you in it and He’s got your back. When you know He is with you in it, you can know that the outcome is going to be good. Faith pleases Him (Hebrews 11:6) and He wants you to fully experience the joy of running after your dreams without fear.
Have you seen the crazy risks that children will take? They’ll stand on top of a table surrounded by people and loudly sing a song they didn’t even rehearse. They’ll jump off the top of the stairs and plunge into the couch below without fear of injury. They’ll create art that is far from perfect and proudly show it to you in full expectation of your praise and delight.
Children take bold risks with a huge smile on their face. They are not inhibited or hesitant in the way that adults are. Let the kid inside of you come out and take big risks again. It will put a big smile on the face of your Father, and after you press through the fear I am confident it will put a big smile on your face as well 🙂
What dreams are in front of you? What risks are you considering taking?
