When your heart is beating out of your chest,
and breathing has lost its rhythm-Jump!
When your mind is racing with doubts,
and the answers only bring monstrous shadows-Jump!
When the cliff reaches into the clouds,
and the valley is sure to destroy-Jump!
When you hear the strong, reassuring voice-
summoning you into His arms-Jump!
When you want to look back…don’t,
stare straight into His eyes of grace and Jump!
Even when your life hangs in the balance,
and right must stand up to wrong-Jump!
When the past screams out for you to remain,
and nestle in its pain-Jump!
Set your mind, feel the pounding of courage,
sink into the bending, into the believing and just Jump!
And remember….the SOARING can only come in the JUMPING!
