Jump

It feels like we’re jumping into the busy season with both feet. All except for Mom–she’s not doing anything with both feet at the moment.

My mother-in-law broke her ankle on Tuesday. And her fall threw us all into a bit of confusion, as we rearrange schedules and plan for a summer without the help of the greenest thumb on the farm.

But we know God has a plan, even in this. So we pray and we plan and we jump in with both feet, in full faith that He will sustain us for the summer ahead. Trusting that as He heals Mom’s leg, He will also grow us more like Him and closer to each other.

And isn’t that what faith always is? A big leap into the unknown, knowing only His hands are there to catch us. And isn’t that what each day should be like? Full reliance on Him for the strength we are never guaranteed.

So we face our summer, differently than we thought, but perhaps more as we ought.

  1. I love this: “So we face our summer, differently than we thought, but perhaps more as we ought.”

    Isn’t that what life ends up like, so many times? And if we are afraid to forge forward–to jump into his arms and trust what He has for us–we would be so stuck.
