Falling, realizing the ground is fast approaching, watching the ground getting closer, silhouettes of buildings, bare ground, bodies of water, patches of flowers, green fields, and cemeteries. Where will you land? You fell with no plan of stopping but now you want a parachute. You wish you had one now. As you fall you see a steeple, a cross- a saving grace… Sometimes you have to fall hard to understand the need for Christ and to have your heart pierced by grace. You have to surrender it all to Him and ask Him for help. He can be the only thing that stands between you and falling hard into the world. Those of you that have messed up in your life and you feel there is never going to be a ‘normal’, I promise if you keep pushing forward day by day– There will one day be a ‘NORMAL’ again. Find Christ, He isn’t hiding, He is waiting for you to reach for Him. Call on His name.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Actually, Yasuhiro Kubo holds the record for longest time between tossing a parachute out of an airplane and then jumping out to get it (50 seconds).
Does that count as skydiving without a parachute or not?
Not what I am talking about!lol But that would be scary any day!! 🙂
