Today's question from the Internet Cafe:
What would be the title of a book about your life?
I like this question and boy it sure does make you think. It's very difficult to sum up a whole lifetime in one title. I think (on short notice like this) I would say the title would be "Stepping Off - One Cliff at a Time". I say this because, as I mentioned in my previous post, Great Faith in God is probably my greatest desire and was my desire even when I was a young girl just learning about God.
It takes courage to put all your Trust in a God you can't see. This doesn't come easily to me. I am Not a risk-taker at all! I'm a planner. I have to consider every possibility and plan out how to handle all the options (at least 3 times) before I step into something. Even then I often step slowly and cautiously. Faith is like stepping off of a cliff and knowing that His hand will be right there to hold me up. This is the picture I see most often these days and God has prompted me to step off of the cliff a few times. When I do, it is the most Awesome thing in the world to be held up by the Hand of God. It is something I want to spend all of my life doing without a second thought.
When I gave my life to Christ over 18 years ago, I had never heard of sinners prayer or anything along those lines. I grew up in a completely secular environment. That night as I prayed, my prayer to Him was that I wanted to live my life to please Him.
"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him." (Hebrews 11:6)
