A risk, a choice, a calculated gamble. A step forward into newness. A flicker of light into the darkness of unexplored, unfamiliar territory. A word of faith, three letters summing up all the trust and confidence and hope I can muster. A word that puts my money where my mouth is, that says I believe You, Jesus, when You say You have plans for me. I trust You, Jesus, that You will not lead me astray. I believe You, Jesus, when You say You love me and You want to give me the desires of my heart. I trust You, Jesus, that this yes will not be in vain, that You will not abandon me now, that You will be as faithful as You have always been. A shaky but sure symbol of all of the courage I can find within me. A heart-wrenching, trembling key that will unlock more than my wildest dreams ever held. A vote of confidence wrapped up the blessed assurance that Jesus is mine.

Every day in October, I'm writing whatever comes to mind when I focus on one word.
