When you take leaps of faith, don't look down, look up. If you look down, you'll fall; but if you look up, you'll soar. Look up to the clouds--the sky, that expanse--which hugs us close like a warm blanket but is far beyond our reach. Far beyond that expanse, though closer than the sky's blanket, is the One who can lift us up to heights we thought impossible.
If you look to Him, He'll eventually pull you so high, so close that you can see, touch, and smell Him. And in His presence you will find something more wonderful and rich than you ever hoped to achieve. For though you were worthless, He counts you as priceless. Though all have abandoned you, He will never leave your side. Though you were ugly and unable to be loved, in His eyes you are the most beautiful and the most deserving of His love. His love is the kind in which all things are possible, even those things from your wildest dreams that no one else dares to dream, but does anyway.
If you look to Him, you'll never fall, though you think you are. He's just lifting you higher while you're upside down.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
