Five Minute Friday :: Risk


Risk. It's not just jumping out of planes. Or starting a new home business. Or being in combat. It's not even leaving all you know and are comfy with to follow your hubby across the world. (and that last one was a bit terrifying to this lady, but it's been fun)

It can be as simple as choosing to say no. To live outside society's idea of normal. It can be saying no to consumerism. It is choosing to love until your heart is full to bursting. And that includes your neighbor....even those half a world away. It is following God's plan even though it sounds ridiculously crazy (even to yourself).

And although it's scary or a tad bit weird or not "normal" the lesson in the risk is always worth it. Here's to embracing the risk.

  3. Ahhh...how providential for our posts to be linked close to one another; I've just followed my husband half-way around the world while he trains for a new job in Germany the next year and a half or so :).

    Risk means SO many things, big and mighty, yes, but small and quiet, too. It's important to consider all as valuable.

    1. Don't you just love Germany?! It is a beautiful place far different from where we came from. When I clicked on over to your blog I saw the pic from Bavaria....we just returned from a vacation down there. One of the coolest places ever. May God bless you as you enjoy this new adventure.
