as i write this MASTERCHEF AUSTRALIA is on. they’re creating amazing desserts that i cant even comprehend how they invent them and execute them. way out of my league. and as they approach the judges table they’re risking it all. their dream is on a plate. their effort and skill are going to be judged, rated and ranked.
it puts YOU out there.
you risk your dream. you risk your heart. you risk what people may think of you or say about you.
you risk failing and falling.
you risk winning.
you risk meeting expectations or falling short.
you wont know how it works out until you step out – and risk.
today my kids school portfolios came home – filled with examples of their work and their report. my son had a “reflection” about his time at camp in may included in his portfolio. a beautiful example of risk. he had to make the choices to risk and step out and try new things. absailing. rafting. archery. he had to risk and try somethign that he had never done before. he had to take the instructor at his word that he would not fall, drown or spear himself with his own arrow. yes really. he took a risk. and loved every minute of camp. even the scary things. he absailed. rafted. and almost got a bullseye.
life is full of risks. risks in each choice and decision.
i want to live my life as a woman who risks. who takes the leap. who puts my dream on a plate and sets it out there for the world to see.
you see, i believe that nothing is impossible for God and that He delights in those who say YES to Him and that i can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. ALL THINGS. the safe things and the risky things.
sometimes when you risk, you don’t get the masterchef apron (to go with the original inspiration) but sometimes you do and it catapults you into your dream.
life is risk. risk is good.
