Are you leaving any margin in your life to live by faith?
That’s a question that come to mind when I was walking the other day. (By the way, when I’m walking, I am getting all my best and worst thinking done.)
These days it is so easy to find what you need to know how to do. How do I get healthy? How do I save money? How do I be a better wife/dad/dog owner? Google’s got all the answers.
But I wonder if that also makes it really easy to erase that margin. That margin that’s really more like a leap—a leap from what we can handle into something unknown, something bigger, something from God.
And there are some questions the internet and books and other people can speak into, but they can’t always answer. Questions like, how do I make this dream from the Lord into a reality?
The Bible gives us the ultimate answer: trust God, and bring Him glory, and He'll take care of the rest. But safety and even logic aren't always promised.
Every once in a while God asks us to make a decision that doesn’t seem so smart on paper, doesn’t he? So what happens when what he asks isn’t exactly what Dave Ramsey writes?
We can reason it away or jump anyway.
I think I’d rather jump.
