Everything you and I do take time and at least an element of courage. How much time and courage am I talking about? Right now let's take it in a small amount- twenty seconds.
Twenty seconds doesn't seem like much time, but before we keep going I want to give you a frame of reference for it...
There is a great quote from the movie We Bought a Zoo, the main character Benjamin Mee says, "You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally, twenty seconds of embarrassing bravery, and I promise you something great will come of it."
What would happen if you decided to make that quote your motto and live by it? What would twenty seconds of insane courage look like in your life?
“Is the really what God wants?"
"What if I'm wrong?"
"What if God is telling me to do something else?"
These questions haunted me every time I started to take a step, big or small. Then one Tuesday afternoon I shared some of my thoughts with my spiritual father.
Graduates, as long as you truly are pursuing God and listening for His direction He will not lead you down a wrong path, and if there is a mistake that needs to be corrected, He will show you. Just don't let fear cause you to disobey His direction.
You, my friends, are about to step out on a new adventure of your own.
After all, sometimes all you really need is twenty seconds of insane courage.
