Jumping off the Ledge

Mark shared the following yesterday at a farewell party.  I was touched by the words, and wanted to share them with you.  Hopefully you will remember this whenever you’re feeling like you’re at the edge of the Grand Canyon. 

As we prepare to make the big move, more and more I’m getting the feeling that I’m leading my family off a cliff. Right now, we’re at the edge of what seems like the Grand Canyon, about to take the plunge.  From my perspective this challenge is insurmountable, but to the God who uses the earth as His footstool, the Grand Canyon is just a crack the vinyl.  

Our God is bigger.
