If I were to describe myself as one of the colors of a traffic light (weird, I know), I would definitely be amber. The “proceed with caution” kind.
I never used to be amber. Oh, no! There was a time in my life when I was totally a green kinda girl. Go, go, go…and then deal with the consequences later.
Yup, that was me.
Jump on in and worry about where I land later. In fact, I never really cared where I landed. I just dealt with the consequences to my many impulsive decisions as they came up.
These days I am different. I jump with extreme caution. Perhaps I’m getting older or have learned a few life lessons the hard way. I don’t know. I am just much more cautious when it comes to diving in the deep end these days.
Proceed with extreme caution.
Except one thing.
There is one area in my life where I cannot proceed with caution.
Being cautious and afraid of possible failure would be terrible. So I take a deep breath and jump right in–trusting the Father with everything I have…come what may.
There are not many things that get me in a tizzy. Except this. When I see unfairness in this one thing…..
I jump! Big time.
And trust the Lord for a good landing.
That’s exactly what I’m going to do tomorrow.
Because I have a green light–and that means “JUMP!”
It means trusting the Lord to work things out!
It means putting myself out there for the sake of the cause.
But sometimes jumping requires an army.
So I’ll need you to jump with me, army of a Mighty God.
