Take A Leap of Faith Already.
“You better get up, get out and get something…”(lyrics). Can you name the artist?
Anyway, I remember one day while working at a factory in Canton, OH as a young man sitting around shooting the breeze with some of my co-workers after my shift, and we were talking about what a good job it was to have. It actually wasn’t bad at the time and was difficult to get in to work at this place. One of the guys said, “I’m just gonna work here until I hit the lottery.” What?!
Unfortunately, he was serious. This line was something that has always stuck with me. I just couldn’t understand the mentality. This guy was really just going to sit around and wait for something big to happen in his life.
I was thinking about this today and it reminded me of a story I heard before about a guy with perhaps the same mentality.
Maybe you’ve heard this, but the story goes something like this:
It had been raining for several days and now all the land was flooding. The waters rose so high that people had to evacuate the area. One man decided to climb onto the roof of his house to avoid the floodwaters, faithfully praying to God to save him.
As the waters continued to rise, a man in a rowboat appeared and told him to get in. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in the Lord and He will save me.” So the man in the rowboat said, “suit yourself” and left. The man on the roof prayed again for God to save him.
The waters rose higher and higher, and suddenly a speedboat appeared. “Climb in!” shouted a man in the boat. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in the Lord and He will save me.” So the man in the speedboat said, “fine by me” and left. The man on the roof prayed even harder, knowing that God would save him.
The waters continued to rise. A helicopter appeared and over the loudspeaker, the pilot announced he would lower a rope to the man on the roof. “No,” replied the man on the roof. “I have faith in the Lord and He will save me.” So the man in the helicopter said, “I hope He comes soon because the water is going to swallow you!” and then he left. The man on the roof prayed again for God to save him, steadfast in his faith.
The waters rose higher and higher, and eventually they rose so high that the man on the roof was washed away and eventually he drowned.
Upon arriving in heaven, the man marched straight over to God. “Heavenly Father,” he said, “I had faith in you, I prayed to you to save me, and yet you did not come for me. Why?” God gave him a puzzled look, and replied “I sent you two boats and a helicopter, what more did you expect?”
This story is indicative of the way some people live their lives—always waiting for some type of big miracle to occur in their lives. They have belief, yet ignore so many opportunities that come their way. “It” is never going to just happen.
Stop sitting around waiting for some grand opportunity to come along that fits your idea of how your divine path should appear.
You must first believe that you are capable of great things. Then you must open your mind to the possibilities that are all around you. Finally, you must take action. It is not until you take these three small steps that you can truly experience the abundant life in store for you.
