Jim decided to finally face his fear of heights. On his 50th birthday, he decided to jump out of an airplane. After the necessary training, Jim was in the plane. As the plane neared the point where Jim would jump, he turned to his instructor and asked a question.
“What if my parachute doesn’t open? How long will it take for me to hit the ground?”
His instructor replied, “You will be about halfway through the Lord’s Prayer.”
I’ve never understood why anyone would abandon a perfectly good plane. The only thing that makes less sense is abandoning a perfectly good Savior.
I like the way Germany Kent said it. “Let your life reflect the faith you have in God.”
If you want to succeed in recovery, you will need to walk with God. That means trusting a God you can’t see with circumstances you can. It’s not always easy, but it is always necessary.
Recovery Step: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).
