📣 I went swimming with sharks yesterday 🦈 and to say that took trust is an understatement!
🧅 There were layers to the trust I chose to have yesterday, and it started first with GOD. ✔ Can I fully trust that He’s got me covered, that He’s good, and that I’ve truly been healed from a fear that used to hold me back?
Then it came time to trust MYSELF. ✔ Can I fully trust that I’ll keep taking steps in those moments of courage (like saying YES to this opportunity 🤪) and actually follow through on swimming with sharks and not just going to the ocean?
Then it was time to trust OTHERS ✔ Can I trust that (1) the person I went with won’t try any funny business or pranks? and (2) the stranger who we asked to take pictures with their go pro 📷 would actually send us the pictures?
And finally, it was time to trust the SHARKS 🦈 🙄 😒 Are they *really* not aggressive? 😬 Are we sure they’re not hungry? 😳 What if today is the day they decide to try human for the first time?
🙃 But, I trusted. I chose to trust each step of the process. I went all in for it because partly it sounded cool, and partly I want to be able to say “I swam with sharks!” And, bonus, I ran into a girlfriend from church while I was there 🤗 Extra fun!
And now I can say I did it 😃 And I genuinely had such a great time!! It was perfect weather, the water was super warm, and the waves were gentle 🌊
