How To Trust In The Free Fall

What are you holding onto? It could be a relationship, a job, an addiction, maybe even a habit. Whatever you are holding onto, it is a comfort zone and you could be leaning on it more than you are leaning on God. Many people have probably told you throughout your life to “lean on Jesus.” People have told me that over and over again and it seems easy, right? However I have always thought of it like this: did you ever play “trust fall” with your friends? They stand right behind you, you close your eyes, cross your arms, fall back and just trust that they will catch you before you hit the ground. That was my similar experience of “leaning on Jesus.” I know He’s there, He has never once left me behind. Yet, I can’t seem to bring myself to fall into him.

The fear all lies in that moment when gravity hits, it’s that split second before they catch you when you feel your weight going down. I feel like the past week of my life I have been living in a freeze frame of that exact moment. God loves when we submit our lives to him and let go, but that doesn’t mean we automatically fix our problems. Sometimes God wants to keep us in that second of free falling so we can continue to make the decision to trust. It’s easy to say you trust God once, but can you keep saying it when life gets harder? Yes. Yes you can. I believe wholeheartedly that you can because after awhile, it becomes a habit. That habit will turn into a lifestyle and before you know it you are living in the promise. Jesus loves this, He loves seeing us living in trust and I know he will bless it. So right now you may not have the answers, and that’s okay. Let’s choose to trust the free fall daily, we’re not in this alone.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
