Leap Of Faith
So often you bring yourself right to the edge, but just can’t bring yourself to take that leap of faith
Turning back right at that critical moment,
Letting fear and doubt win the day.
Faith is being able to take that critical first step, without being able to see the whole staircase.
It requires you to get comfortable with being uncomfortable
To accept the fact that certainty, has embedded within it a level of uncertainty
And that this is a simple and unescapable, fact of life.
So perhaps your energy has been a little misdirected.
Perhaps you’d be better served, if instead of trying so hard to create and hold onto certainty, you learn to let go
Instead of doubt, you learn to trust
Instead of succumbing to fear, you develop courage
And in some way you come to surrender your life, to life itself.
Understanding that even with the most rational consideration, things are almost guaranteed to unfold not as you had expected
Understanding that you have very little control over the final outcome,
But you do control what you do and how you choose to respond.
So sometimes taking that leap of faith is the only way to unshackle your self
To release yourself from bondage and move towards real freedom
Trusting that your only responsibility is to always act with the right intention and by doing that, you will eventually set your life onto its rightful course.
Because it's impossible for our little brains to comprehend the vastness of the universe
To grasp for answers, that lead only to more questions
So sometimes surrendering yourself is the only way to go.
Knowing full well, that regardless of where your path takes you, that it's uniquely yours and in the end it's your only way to a life fully lived.
