Have you ever encountered a wall or a chasm that stopped you from getting where you wanted or needed to be? Leaping over or across it would be ideal, but that isn’t always an option, is it?
Although a literal leap isn’t possible, a leap of faith is! With God’s help, we can accomplish things we’ve never thought we could do.
Best-selling author Nancy Eichman explores how women can conquer the obstacles in their lives by following the faithful example of the Old Testament prophet, Elisha. He lived in a society similar to the one in which we find ourselves. Righteousness wasn’t common. Integrity was rare. But Elisha reached out to show God’s power, touching believers and unbelievers. We, too, can tap God’s power in a leap of faith.
