“The Lord says, ‘I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” Psalm 32:8 NLT
So this was a great way to begin our Spring Break….fun, sun and witnessing a guy jump off a cliff, sail around for 15 minutes and land right in front of us. It doesn’t get much better than that on a Monday afternoon.
We rushed to meet him like he was a Rock Star and learned a little about what he does and how he does it. He talked about the way he assesses the weather, location, proximity to dangerous objects, etc. But once in the air, he really is just guided by something uncontrolable….the wind.
It wasn’t until that evening that I realized how this great visualization is truly exemplifying life. We can make a decision based on what we see, but once we’re in it, we have to modify based on the changes in the elements. It takes preparation and knowledge, but more than anything, it takes faith!
But when the nice paraglider offered to take my young son up for a tandem ride, I’d have to opt out of that kind of faith for now! I rather just watch his faith in action!
