LAUNCH OUT!

2 Timothy 1:6 “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
7 For God did not give us a spirit of TIMIDITY, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
8 So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God,
9 who has saved us and called us to a holy life--not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,
10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.”
(NIV)

************

Perhaps you’re very timid,
Not too many chances…do you take;
Rock solid…no surprises,
A lot of waves…you never make.

For years and years…perhaps a lifetime,
Writing everything in ‘stone’;
So very set in your ways,
Like a slab of marble you have grown.

Do everything a certain way,
Try nothing new…not ever;
A sense of security…for sure,
Dull and boring…adventurous…never!

Do you dare to take a step of faith,
LAUNCH OUT for something new;
Travel the road less traveled on,
Allow Father God to widen your view?

Led by His Holy Spirit,
Adventure…around each bend;
Sameness…dullness…boredom,
To this…He will put an end!

We’ll awaken every morning,
Asking Him what is His will;
And, by His Spirit…He will lead us,
If we listen…and be still.

Sometimes we meet somebody,
We haven’t seen for years and years;
Other times…a new friend,
We can encourage…dispelling their fears.

LAUCH OUT…don’t be timid,
He wants to make all things new;
Transforming lives…His greatest miracle,
Oftimes…He uses me and you!

LAUNCH OUT…let our Lord complete,
All that He has begun;
Work with Him…not against Him,
His way is best…and not to shun!

LAUNCH OUT…into the great adventure,
Where He makes all things new;
LAUNCH OUT…with great expectation,
And, we shall see all that He will do!
