Stepping Out of the Boat

Will Hart of Hart Ministries recently posted this on his Facebook page:

This is the time and the place where we are to be and it is up to us to pursue it. If we don't step out of the boat we will end up staying in it and all we will have is an experience. Nothing more. We have to step out of the boat and into our destiny. That's God's design for us.

Ben and I believe that God has created us to fulfill a great big destiny. Over the past three-and-a-half years of marriage, our hearts have taken separate journeys but have {miraculously} arrived at the same place. Our destiny. I knew I married the man of my dreams. My soul mate. But I did not know that God had taken it even further, creating us to fulfill the same destiny—a destiny that one could not fulfill without the other.

Over the past few months, we have begun the journey toward our destiny. Sort of just bobbing along to start. But we have arrived on the open sea. Our boat will not contain us for much longer. And so we either step out of the boat and sink. Or we step out of the boat and walk on water.

The few people we’ve told think we’re crazy. And rightly so. None of it makes sense from a natural perspective. But we know the destiny for which God created us. And we have an arsenal of promises from a Friend who has never broken even one. And we know our Daddy’s heart is full of love toward us. He would never let us sink.

So, we step out of the boat. Cheers to walking on water.
