NEW YEAR - LEAP OF FAITH
Mark 9:23 ~ "If you believe, all things are possible
to him who believes."
2020 is a brand-new year. It is full of possibilities and hopes. Many people make New Year resolutions about things that they might want or think they should change in their lives. Their thoughts, desires, and intention to make these changes sound like a great idea. However, it might take an even greater action to make these dreams come true. It takes a "leap of faith". This leap of faith is the willingness to do some-thing or try something based largely on one's faith that it will work out despite having little or no evidence or assurance that it will. It usually has no past experience or fact that it will work out but it is the faith that the highest and best will happen. This leap of faith does take courage but it also takes breaking free from a fear that might be holding you back. This fear may be an internal one and it might work or it might not work. But isn't it worth a try?
As a person learns to listen to Spirit, then they become more confident, learn to surrender, and have faith. However, it does require a commitment and willingness to let go and receive your spiritual guidance. It also requires being optimistic, maybe going outside your comfort zone, and reaching higher than you even thought possible. Don't give up on yourself. Spread your wings and take that "leap of faith." You will never know how high you can soar until you try!!
Even though the holiday season is almost over for right now, during the next 12 months I want to share with all of you an explanation that I found about the 12 days of Christmas and the meaning behind each of the days. On the first day of Christmas it is a partridge in a pear tree. This represents Jesus Christ. The partridge in a bird that will sacrifice its life to save its children just like Jesus Christ did for us when he died upon that cross many years ago.
Always Keep Your Faith
