No Fear

I have a small confession to make. I am a "So You Think You Can Dance" addict. I like to pretend that my body can still do (as if it ever could, lol) the glorious things these dancers do.

I'm posting a link to one particular dance, and after it's over, THEN read on, because there will be spoilers.

So that LEAP!!! The parallel I'd like to draw to "the leap" is that is how we should be into this exploration and expansion of our talent. We know that it's been given to us by God. We need to be throwing ourselves into it, knowing we'll be caught, because the Lord would never have given us these talents only to drop us at our moment of greatest vulnerability. So live! Write with gusto and no fear, because in the end, we will always be caught.


  1. Oh man, how did you know this is exactly what I needed to hear today? I've been wanting to write like the wind this summer before I have to go back to work, but something has been stopping me. I know it's probably fear, but fear of what? I'm not sure. But I've been so mad at myself for not just doing it. So I'm going to try to throw myself into it and know that I'll be caught. Thanks!

  2. WOW! That leap was phenomenal! Thank you so much for posting this. It was exactly what I needed. Why do we forget that the Lord is there to catch us. He DID bless us with these talents! Great post today! You have renewed my faith in myself and my writing. :)

  3. I'm an SYTYCD addict too! Love your analogy! :)

  4. It really is talent! It is fun to fantasize about being so skilled.
