Whimsy Wednesday :: What if you FLY?





.

This quote! Ugh! It's just lovely, inspiring, daring and dream filled all in just two short sentences! I love it and I was excited to shoot for it!  Happily I found a willing model and a sunshiny day!


And that's the key isn't it, the willing part!?!  That we need to be willing to step out, in faith, and see if we can "fly"!  But all to often we can be immobilized by fear!  Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of looking the fool, whatever it may be, but fear will stop us or hold us back.


God does not want us to live in fear, in fact, the bible says, "Do not be afraid" 365 times!  That's one for everyday of the year!  (as for leap years...stay in bed that day! lol!!!)  But in all seriousness, God is sovereign, God is good and God has your best at work.


One thing, I heard a while ago is this thought, that we must get over the lie that life is suppose to be easy or good!  And it's true.  God does care for us, want what is best for us..but in His plan!  If you are a child of God then you are not living for this world and it's rewards but for the kingdom to come.  And when you focus on that, the idea of fearing what may be here, sort of...shrinks away!


So I am encouraging you, step out and fly!  What is on your heart? What is it that you are worried you might 'fall' at?  It doesn't have to be big or grand, just something that when you read the quote above you go, "Oohhh.  Yes, I'm afraid to but I want to ________"  It's whatever fills in that blank for you!


It may be to simply have the neighbour in for coffee, or to finally run that half marathon.  Maybe it's to pursue the idea of fostering or relocating to follow a dream. Maybe it's to cut your hair, write a book, travel Europe, learn to play an instrument, even this photo challenge, whatever it may be, if you're scare you might fall, then I'm challenging you to try...to step out and try to fly!  As long as what you are doing is done unto the glory of God, it will be an experience worth remembering.


I heard once, "If nothing ever happens to you, then nothing ever happens to you!"


Let God guide your somethings and He will give you the wings!  You may not completely 'succeed' the first time you take off but remember, the Wright brothers' fist flight lasted only twelve seconds!! 


So, my darlings, get out there, spread those wings and fly! 





Next weeks text:




If God brought you to it,
He will bring you through it.

  1. Oh my Kaitlin - you surely inspire. I'm almost nervous (to fly) on this one... I'll post mine soon. But - will be away for the day and so it may happen later. We'll see!

    But. this.

    This is awesome in every way. You photo. Your words. Your encouragement. I'm going to have to come back and let it really sink in.

    Thank you!!

  2. Kaitlin, this speaks volume's to me.. So many dreams and desire's in this heart of mine, but the fear of hurting someone close if I try is my issue.. Wanting to move to another state, but catch so much grief when its even mentioned brings the fear of leaping.. I tried it once, not a pretty sight with someone, instilled more fear... so I wait, I wait, and Ive waited.. Longing to be somewhere else. Now I pray, pray and pray that in God's timing it will all work out.. Some fear has subsided, so time is key in my situation.. and if God really wants me there it will be a definite thing.. So I trust in him.. I love the photo... she is beautiful..
