Does Faith Equal Risk?

How strong is your faith?

Does your faith allow or push you to take risks? Click to tweet.
Think about it allow or push?

Two different ways to get to the same place--through a risk taking adventure.

"[God] guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones." Proverbs 2:8

I allow my faith to help me do the easier things. If I were the one on the tightrope though it would have to be a PUSH because I'm not that brave, I'm no David or Esther no, no, no, not at all! I am wimpy! But with God behind that faith and a gentle --okay earth shaking push--I could get on that tightrope.

There are many times it's felt like a tightrope moment--learning to blend a family, speaking for the first time in front of more than my closet friends and even boarding a plane.

Please share a time when you've allowed or been pushed by faith to do something.


  1. Gosh, I have to say both. It allows me to risk doing things want to do but fear (things I'm scared I'm not capable of doing). And it pushes me to do things I may not want to do but know I should do! :)

    1. Hi Missy,
      That's about where I am on this push...need it more than most people though. I over analyze everything.
