Bring Light to Your Leap

True faith is not a leap into the dark; it's a leap into the light.

— Eric Metaxas —

Please note, in yesterday’s blog I failed to mention that I’ve also been vaccinated (x3) against the virus.


We’ve all heard the phrase, “She or he took a leap of faith.”

When I left my pharmacy career almost twelve years ago, to some, it may have looked as though I was making a leap of faith into the darkness of the unknown.

I was in a great position with the company that had acquired us, making plenty of money, and revered as one of the top leaders in our industry.

Despite all that, there was a “little voice” inside me telling me to move on and try something completely different. To try something that would stir my passion like my role with the pharmacy once did.

So I “lept,” and here I am, happy and as passionate as I’ve ever been about the current work I’m providing for the world.

We all have an inner voice…a voice that guides us in our decision-making process. A voice that helps us delineate right from wrong, holy from unholy.

I find life a bit more enjoyable to live when I nourish my inner voice with the Light, i.e., the Holy Spirit, daily.

I’ve shared with you many times about my morning routine–all done, ironically, in the dark before the sun rises.

My morning routine of bringing Light to my “little voice” consists of scripture reading, journaling, meditating, and prayer.

This habit helps me with my daily decision-making process, especially any “leaps” I may need to make.


If you are contemplating leaping onto an unknown path, first leap into His Light for a few weeks–there is a good chance you will leap the right way.

John 1:5, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
