I’m going to share something with you. I’m going to tell you something that every successful person has to do…including you. Believe it or not…every successful person has jumped. I’m going tell you what I mean by that. Eventually you’re going to have to jump. You cannot just exist in this life, you have GOT to try to live. If you’re waking up thinking that there’s got to be more to your life than it is now…then believe that there is. Believe in your heart of hearts that there is. But to get to that life you’re going to have to jump. I’ll tell you why I call it jumping. See God…when he created us…He gave every last one of us a gift at birth. He never created a soul without endowing them with a gift. You just have to quit looking at gifts as singing, running, jumping and dancing…it’s more than that. It’s if you know how to network, if you can connect dots, if you can draw, if you can teach, some of you can fry chicken better than anyone else…bake pie…some people cut hair…some people do grass.
When you see people in life. When you’re standing on the cliff of life and you see people soaring by…when you see people soaring going to exotic places. You hear about them doing wonderful things. Maybe you look up the street and your neighbor just gets a new car every year. Have you ever thought that maybe that person has identified their gift and is living in their gift?
The Bible says that your gift will make room for you. Not your education. You can go get your education…that’s nice but if you don’t use your gift…that education is not going to take you so far. I know a lot of people that got degrees…that they’re not even using.
But the only way that you can soar? You got to jump. You got to take that gift that’s packed away on your back. You have to jump off that cliff and pull that cord. That gift opens and provides the soar. If you don’t ever use your gift..you are just going to go to work. If you’re getting up everyday to go to a job that you hate going to…that ain’t living…you’re just existing. At one point in time, you ought to see what living’s like but the only way to see what living’s like…you got to jump.
Here’s the problem. I’m just going to be real with you. When you first jump your parachute will not open right away. I’m sorry. I wish I could tell you it does but it doesn’t. If you jump, it’s not going to open up right away. You’re going to hit the rocks and you’re going to get some skin tore off on the cliffs. You’re going to get all your clothes torn off. You’re going get some cuts on you. You’re going to be bleeding pretty bad but eventually…EVENTUALLY the parachute has to open. That is a promise from God. That ain’t a theory. That’s a promise. His promises are true. Listen to me, you cannot name one single thing God has not gotten you through. Name it. And if he hasn’t got you through it, he’s currently pulling you through it right now. The living proof is your here right now reading this. If he ain’t never failed why would he not let your parachute open. It has to open. You gotta jump though.
Now…here’s another thing. You can play it safe and deal without the cuts and the tears and you can stand on that cliff of life, forever safe. But if you don’t jump…I got another promise I can make to you…your parachute will never open. You’ll never know. You’ll never know what God really has for you. See your God has a wonderful life for you. The Bible says that He comes to give you life and give you life more abundantly. If I were you, I would jump because that’s the only way to get to that abundant life. You got to jump. You got to take a chance.
Now you’re going to talk about this after you read it and you might say, “well, I got bills.” Whether you stay on the cliff or jump you’re going to have bills. “Well if I quit my job, I’m going to ruin my credit.” If you have a job you’re already living check to check. Even if you got 1 credit you can’t buy nothing else no way. At some point in time, do yourself a favor, go see what God really does. God holds you up. He ain’t going to let you fall. He didn’t bring you this far to let you fall. Do yourself a favor, before you leave this world… before you die… just jump… just jump one time. Thank you for reading this.
