What Happens If I Fall?

”Let’s stand on that rock together for a picture,” Brad proudly announced with his finger pointing out into a creek. He’s normally not a picture taking kind of guy, so this was a surprising gesture to me. I was wary of stepping onto that slippery rock because 1. It was freezing & I didn’t want to take a chance of sliding right into the water 2. I didn’t have faith in the soles of my boots. 🙃 Despite my two good reasons, Brad’s hand reaching out for me was inviting. “Are you sure?” I asked him. He motioned for me to grab on and pulled me onto the rock for this picture. His assurance in me was what I needed. I had to feel that someone would be there for me if I fell before I took the step. Isn’t it strange how we think we must SEE what’s ahead or who is there before we “take the next step?” What if, as soon as we were told to take the next step, that we just did it without questioning God…without hesitating…without doubting what He can do for us on the other side? I get it. You’re an over thinker like me meaning that you analyze all possible angles of every scenario in life. But, the only thing you need to know is that if God tells you to move, He’s going to be there reaching His hand out to you. And if you fall, He’s going to be there to catch you. And if you don’t, He’s going to be there to hold your hand in the moment. You don’t need to know the details, the script of your life, how it is going to pan out in the end. God is there with you through EVERYTHING. Grab His hand. Make your move. He’s waiting for you.

Hey, y'all! I'm Emily, a simple country girl with a BIG love for the Lord, coffee, sunflowers, cooking, and gardening. I graduated from college one year ago in Secondary Agricultural Education, and I am now fulfilling my dream of teaching agriculture to high school and middle school students while also teaching science in the mix. I am happily married to my college sweetheart, Brad, who doubles as my ag teaching partner! We are newly weds, so we are just getting around to starting a farm. As we add animals to the Cooper Fam and complete projects, y'all will be the first ones to know. :) Tator is our sweet Goldendoodle puppy that we consider to be our first child, and he keeps us on our toes all the time. Between the demands of teaching and life, I enjoy writing and encouraging others in their walk with the Lord sticking tidbits of what I experience along this journey in my writing. I hope that you will follow along and that this blog will help your faith grow longer than a country mile!
