To often I’ve been known to jump without a parachute.
Thankfully Grace caught me every time.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t have things to learn.
Jumping repeatedly without a parachute…
Definitely a bad idea.
So what does this jumper have to learn?
As a spender,
I need to learn to save.
As a impulsive individual,
I have to learn to think things through…
At least sometimes.
As someone who loves the potential of cyberspace…
New friends, new knowledge, new opportunities…
I have to remind myself
I still need to live in the real world.
As someone who loves socializing online,
I have to limit my time doing so.
I have work to do.
A family to take care of.
Friends to interact with – in person.
As someone who recently had a tire blow when traveling 60 mph,
I have to remember everything can change
In an instant.
Have I done everything I can to prepare for big changes?
A good place to start…
Do what I know to do.
Learn what I’ve yet to learn.
Fly every day.
“Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. For I too was a son to my father, still tender, and cherished by my mother” (Proverbs 4:1-3 NIV).
