With age, it gets more difficult to step out of our comfort zone and into the unknown. Today I was going down the stars with my 18 month old. He did this thing where he took a step back… and in a way jumped off the top stair and into my arms, knowing that I would catch him.
If this were me, and my dad was standing there and ready to catch me today… I probably wouldn’t jump. Not that I don’t trust him or his abilities… but what if (fill in the blank.)
It seems like in my life right know, there are so many unknowns. The great thing is that none of them are bad things. There are a lot of potential changes in the works and different avenues to seem to be opening up each day. I have to be honest though… this scares me.
I am a creature of habit. I like things to be consistent and systematic. I don’t like variables or things to not be known. Some people live for this stuff but that just isn’t how I am wired.
I want to be a person that lives outside of their comfort zone. Never reckless and always in control of what is happening in my life. But I don’t want to be complacent. I feel like there is always more but I am scared to take the first step off of the top of the stairway into my fathers arms.
I know that God loves me and all of my faith is in him. Knowing that, it still doesn’t make it easy to take that step but that is why they call it faith right?
I hope that you have a great week and that my blog encourages you in your day.
