So, the second challenge from Fall Fearless and Fly. Here are the prompts:
Headline: Taking a chance. When did you take a chance or a leap of faith? What did you learn?
Colour: The one you like least
Quote: Don't refuse to go on an occasional wild goose chase - that's what wild geese are for. Anonymous
Well, there aren't really any colours I don't like. This isn't a combo I would usually use, though.
The quote didn't really speak to me. For me a wild goose chase is something that doesn't profit you because it is a waste of time. Taking a chance is not a waste of time because there is always something to learn. So I substituted another:
...there are times you need the courage to take a great leap; you can't cross a chasm in two small jumps. David Lloyd GeorgeAs for taking a leap of faith, I have done that several times. One was when my husband went forward for ordination and he had to give notice at his job and we put our house on the market before we knew he definitely had a place at theological college. (This was four weeks before term was due to start.)
The latest would be coming to Australia and leaving everything behind. I came not having been here before at all, not knowing what our housing would be like or anything.
What did I learn? Well, I learned that God is faithful and trustworthy. That is why there is a hand in the gap, ready to catch me if I falter.
