Living the Safe Life

Part of Francis Chan's sermon from Challenge 2006. "Safe" has a different meaning for everyone, but regardless, this challenges me to step a little further, do a little more, maybe even make some waves...

Watch it on You Tube!

In my attempts to not be safe, and take chances..I have fallen....and become discouraged...and someday I will land on my knees, look to heaven and declare that I need God. Only wishing that this day would come soon...this to me is more worthy then the soldier march that so many people routinely do so they can "feel" safe. I don't feel safe, I feel vulnerable...as I should

Maybe falling is a way to realize we all need God? It takes a lot of humility to admit that we can't do it alone. As for vulnerable, I think it takes a lot of strength to admit that we are that, too...we're a curious mix, aren't we? Strong and vulnerable. Humble yet confident. hunh.

I've got to say, though, about his video: I don't agree that homeschooling is the "safe" option. It's one of the toughest things I've taken on! It's not easy, that's for sure, and it leaves a lot of room for people to misunderstand, judge and assume. Sometimes it's a lonely road, and it takes guts to go the way less traveled. I'm still happy we're homeschoolers, though, even if it's hard some days!
