THE LIFE OF FAITH looks beautiful and easy from a distance, but it can feel very confining up close. So many rules. So many prohibitions. So many boundaries. But the guardrails God provides are meant to prevent us from experiencing the harshest of consequences during our early learning. Our persistence will pay off if we trust our Shepherd and don’t get to wandering. Mature faith is set free to embrace the beauty that was once in the distance, free of the fear of falling.
