A Leap of Faith

As humans we believe in many things that we can see. We believe that the chair or couch that we sit on will hold us up without thinking of the possibility that it may come crashing down at any moment. We know for certain that the sun will go down and come up again, regardless if it’s cloudy or not. It’s just fact and it has always been that way since the day we enter the world or since the world began. These are simple things that we take for granted every day, they are the physical and natural we trust and understand. It makes sense to us to see something working already without having to rely on inner instincts, but it’s the not knowing or seeing that makes us uncomfortable.
In today’s society we have been condition to believe that we have to see it before we believe it. We even speak that the possible is impossible without realizing what we have said. It’s been so deeply in grain in us that we repeat the negative without thinking about.  That’s because it has to make sense to us before we can believe that it is possible. Now, I’m sure you’re wondering where I am going with this, why am I talking about beliefs and seeing is believing; Well, there is a scripture that comes to mind when it comes to believing in the possible and taking that leap of faith. Hebrews 11:1 NLT says: What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot see. So with that being said do you have the vision to see what isn’t in front of you; and because to you believe it so much, are you willing to take that leap of faith to make it happen? If your answer is yes, I invited you to take a leap of faith into the possibilities of making life easier for you.
Sometimes opportunities just drop in our laps, as this did for me. It couldn't have happen at a better time. I was looking for another job and came across and advertisement for posting links. So I took a looked into it a little further; as I began to search more into the program, it became clear to me this could be something I can do to gain some residual income. So I paid the money to start posting links and found out it wasn't what I thought it was supposed to be, so I opt out of the program. Now that’s normal, but if I haven’t taken that leap of faith, I wouldn't have come across something that I really love doing, and that’s blogging. Now I've been blogging for about two years off and on; but I never thought I could really make any money doing it; until I got a call from someone who is already doing it and is making enough money to take care of their basic necessities and more. Can you envision yourself doing what you love and making money at it with very little monies to start? Well it’s possible, if you’re willing to try.
I read a face book post from Girlfriendsingod.com the other day that said “Faith doesn't make things easy, it makes things possible.” Meaning that anything you try isn’t easy, but if you willing to try and believe with all your heart that the vision you have to make a difference in your life is there, than with faith nothing is impossible.
Now I’m beginning a new chapter in my life. Who would have thought I would be making money doing something I love. It’s rare that you get the chance to do something you really love to do; but when you pursue to do what you have been called to do, than the possibilities are endless.
