Free Fallin'

This picture keeps coming back to me when I meet with different groups and people, so I think I'm supposed to share it here.

Are you feeling like your life is spiraling out of control? You have a vague idea where you are supposed to be but it's taking forever for God to get you there? Are there several options before you?

If so, it's the free fall.

As I pray, this is what I see for those that I know are in the free fall pattern.

If you are free falling, what you don't know is you have a backpack on. Once that backpack releases, you have a parachute.

The way I understand it, that parachute is the Holy Spirit. Been with you the whole time, but you don't see His work activated until a certain point of your free fall.

The free fall continues, but with direction.

As this "directed" free fall continues, I sense the closer you hunger for your Father and His will, the more dead on target you land.

I don't know how long your free fall lasts.

I don't know where you will land.

But I know if you place your trust in Him (I'm working on that too) your path will not only become obvious, you'll land dead center on target.

Not sure about you, but there is no where else I want to be.

Even if I have to take a free fall to get there.

How about you?
