“But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness.” Psalm 69:13 (From day 38 of my 90-day challenge)
By: Gabriela Yareliz
In about eight weeks, life is going to feel like I am jumping off of a cliff with a hang glider.
I will fly, but only God knows to where.
Right now, I can only see the sky, and I am not about to look down. I tried to look down already, and I felt overwhelmed. Visibility for landing isn’t that clear, anyway. I guess that will get clearer as I go. For many of us, our lives are about to change in the most dramatic of ways. It’s hard to concentrate on anything these days, with so many changes coming full-speed ahead. Sometimes, believers don’t just walk by faith, but they find themselves at a precipice, with equipment, and they have to learn to fly by faith, too.
Right now, I feel I am at the edge of one of the many precipices I will face in my life. I see space, unknown, beauty, excitement, joy, wonder, goodness, blessings, and yet so much distance left to be crossed. In three weeks, I’ll have my eyes closed, and I’ll be adjusting my grip on the flying device; and in those next five weeks, I am going to show my trust and fly. And off I will go. This isn’t like parachuting. No one is strapped on to me, and no one is holding my hand. However, the people I love have faith that God has equipped me to fly, and they stand beside me as I inch closer to the edge.
It’s now or never. A new chapter begins soon. Soon, it will be now.
