My toes gripped desperately to the edge of the diving board, my heart pounded in my chest and my nerves were a jumble in the back of my throat.
Dive in, really?
Bravely, yet full of fear, I took the plunge - literally.
Fear is the enemy's best tool. It's the one that will keep us on the sideline and/or diving board indefinitely. God however, calls on us to trust him. He calls on us to take that preverbal leap of faith, no matter how crippling the fear is.
So the next time you find yourself overcome with fear - whether that means taking a new job, meeting new friends, or simply attempting to dive off of the diving board - keep this in mind;
God sprouts your wings once you take the leap.
Trust in the Lord with all of your heart... - Proverbs 3:5
