Taking a Jump

African impalas, which can jump four metres high and ten metres long, are often kept in enclosures behind a wall that’s only one metre high. The reason is that impalas will not jump if they can’t see where their feet will land. Many of us are like that. We have the potential to do so much more and be so much more, but we keep ourselves imprisoned behind little walls that we’d love to jump over and could, except we can’t see where our feet would fall. The thing we most need is faith – faith in our gut feeling that there is a God who wills that our lives should be significant and who will guide and strengthen us to be just that. But faith always means being prepared to jump over the little walls that hold us back. Faith is the ability to trust what we know is true even though we cannot see where it will lead us.
