Risk Video

Greetings and Holykisses,

Today, I worked in my purposefull life bible study, by Jan Johnson. In the lesson, I was asked whether or not I'm a risk taker? This is a huge one for me... And I've definitely been learning to take risks for the Lord. Not sayin I always do, coz I'd be lyin, but I want to have the "COURAGE" to do so! Haaaa!... ohmygosh, "courage" was yet another word that came earlier today too!

I have to share the video that continued connecting my dots." Perfect timing I'd say!
I really like the way Francis Chan- author of Crazy Love, expresses our routine.* Totally cracked me up, and yet it speaks volumes of truth doesn't it?
Let me know what you think!

The video certainly explains what might happen if we don't take risks in serving our great big God. Lea, you took a risk when you started going to the jail ministry and even did a devotional. Look where it led you to - you led a young girl to the knowledge of Jesus and led her through the sinner's prayer. I would say you are a definite risk taker for God.
Thanks for sharing,

Lea , Love the video! I read Crazy Love last winter and after watching the video I will read it again. I'm walking your walk right now. I am writing a VBS curriculum and the theme scriptures are Matthew 7:13-14 Enter through the narrow gate........
Even as followers of the Lord we sometimes choose the broad gate being misled into believing it is safer.God's Blessing on you and yours. Tell Trent I am glad he is safe!!!!!!!!!!!
