Take a Leap of Faith

Faith is apart of our daily lives. When you get up in the morning you have faith that if you throw a ball in the air it will come down. If you have an ice cube and set it in the sun you have faith that it will melt. We have faith in many things but when God wants us to do something for him we give excuses for taking action.

For many years I have come up with excuses and passed by opportunities that God had for me. It is easier to say that we don’t have time than to step out of our comfort zone. This year the Lord is helping me take a leap of faith.

I felt the Lord leading me in a new direction but I needed guidance in where to start. That is when I learned about Faith Leaps. Starting with the first lesson I was encouraged and inspired to follow the Lord’s leading. Alyssa, the creator of Faith Leaps, gives clear and helpful advice based on scripture to build your confidence and achieve your dreams. The lessons in this course will not only grow your spiritual life but train you to minister to others. I am thankful that I could be a part of this training!

This program has been a tremendous help and guide for me. If the Lord is leading you to take a leap of faith, do it today! I want to encourage you to read below about my friend Alyssa, her leap of faith, and Faith Leaps program.

Taking the Leap of Faith                                                                                                                by Aylssa Avant

Everything in me said “don’t do it” but for some reason I knew I was suppose to. Nothing really made sense about it, yet I knew it was from God. What you’re wondering, the leap of faith I was about to take. Though it was hard to rationalize, understand or see clearly I knew I had to take it. I was going to “step out of my comfort zone and into God’s hands”. I was going to let go of my life and put it in to God’s hands.

Stepping out on faith is never easy to do, but it is definitely worth the step, the leap, the anxiety. You may hear that still small voice, you may feel that invisible push, but somehow you just know, God is calling, God is prodding, He is waiting for you to take the leap.

Many people today are hearing that call, but few are answering. It is like Scripture says, “the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” Are you going to answer God’s call and go bring in the sheaves or are you going to sit there and wait, or sit there and do nothing?

Since taking my “giant leap of faith” as I call it almost 2 years ago I have seen God’s hands working in my life more than ever before. It is like when I let go, he took over right where I let go. No beat was missed, no stone was left unturned, everything was put into place as he saw fit.

Was it easy every minute of the last two years, well of course not, but it sure was worth it. The experiences have been life-changing, fulfilling and meaningful. Would I go back to the way my life was before? No way.

If you are feeling called to take a “leap of faith”, especially into an area of ministry, especially if God is calling you to use your voice, whether audibly through speaking or through the written word then I want to talk to you! I want to help you, equip you and encourage you.

I want to share my story and what I’ve learned with you through a membership program I have put together called Faith Leaps. Faith Leaps is designed to help you take the leap of faith into speaking, writing and ministry. Whether you believe you should leap into one or all three of those areas. Click Here!

Come on over and look around, see if you’re ready to take the leap.
