Take Flight: to surrender, let go, and let God carry you. To fly higher with Him then you’ve ever dreamed, or expected. To trust He’ll take you exactly where you need to go, when you need to go there.
Sometimes the unknown can be a little scary, especially when you have no idea what’s to come, or how you’ll even get there. Questions can begin to fill your mind, and you may find yourself asking God for more details to ease the uncertainty, because you can’t seem to see all that lies ahead.
You may not have all the answers, but one thing you can be sure of is God calls us to live by faith, not by sight. It’s all part of a journey, and through faith He draws you closer to Him, as you depend on Him to lead you onward. God continuously calls us to take the leap of faith, and trust in Him.
This is something I’ve had to live and learn through the making of my EP Take Flight, because this whole process was truly a leap of faith, and required absolute surrender, and trust in God. There were times where I felt discouraged, and seemed to be fighting against all odds, and I wondered if my dream of being an artist would ever come true, or if the songs I was writing would ever be heard.
Despite my doubt, God continued to lead me onward, reminding me to just breathe, and be still knowing that He is God. I learned so much not only about myself and music as a whole, but also about the Lord as He took me through this, every step of the way.
Living by faith and not by sight isn’t always be easy, and I’m sure a lot of us can relate to those moments when taking the leap and “flying” may seem quite intimidating, especially when it’s a long way down. But there’s good news! You don’t have to take the leap alone. God is there waiting and ready to catch you, and carry you:
“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not grow faint.”
Even though you don’t see or know all there is to come, God does, and he will lead you every step of the way. You just need to trust Him, and He will give you the strength, courage and wisdom that you need to fly with Him and move forward:
“Don’t be afraid for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
Love Him with all your heart, and be ready to obey God immediately through your passion for Him, and your passion that drives you to live out His good, and amazing plans He has for your life! Through all the ups and downs, by God’s grace, Take Flight came together in His perfect timing. Although I have no idea what this new journey ahead of me will bring, I’ll continue to take flight, and trust in Him!
Are you ready to fly? Say yes to all He wants to do in your life. Trust Him, and don’t be afraid. Get ready to take flight!
