Hanging it out there!


Have you ever just hung it all out there? I mean everything. Your well being, the well being of those around you, your imagination, your ego, your self-confidence? I am hanging it all out there right now. And you know why. Because God told me too. That's it! That's why. Because the reality that throws itself up against what he has called us to do is so blaring opposite to what he has said to do. But I know he told me to do it. What choice do I have.

And you know what? I wouldn't trade it for anything. He has met every promise that He has given us. He has always been faithful. And I know that He has a path for me that will bring LIFE. Maybe not for me but for Him. I am willing. My Wife is willing. My Best friend is willing and his wife is willing too.

So we step out in confidence that the God of the universe directs our path.

Hanging in there, hanging out there.

You guys are doing what so many of us struggle to do. Putting your "life" where your belief is. Even if everything were to go done the tube, you would still be the most successful people I know. And I seriously doubt that you will lose anything!

I don't remember the name of the guy who said this (and I am sure it is paraphrased from the Bible), but I do know he is one of the guys the movie "The Head of the Spear" is about: "He is no fool that gives up what he can't keep to gain what he cannot lose".
