The Adventure Link



A family was awakened by their smoke detector in the middle of the night to discover that their house was on fire. The father ran into the upstairs bedroom of his children and carried his eighteen-month-old baby in his arms while dragging his four-year-old son by the hand.


They were halfway down the stairs when the little boy remembered that he had left his teddy bear in the bedroom, so he broke free from his father’s hand and ran back to the bedroom to retrieve it. In the furor and confusion, the father didn’t notice that his son wasn’t with him until he got outside. By now the little boy was trapped by the flames and smoke in his second-story bedroom. Smoke swirled around him and he coughed and cried out from the upstairs window, “Daddy, Daddy! Help me!”


His father yelled from below, “Jump out of the window, Andy! I’ll catch you!”


In the darkness and smoke, the little boy yelled back, “But Daddy! I can’t see you!”


Daddy shouted back, “That’s okay, son. I can see you! Jump!”



 There is a true saying that goes, “I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know who holds the future.”

Do you worry about the future?

Are you afraid of what you can’t see?

Does it seem dark and smoky?


None of us can see what lies ahead, but God tells us to trust him and “jump!”


It is all about learning to trust....

The adventure continues....
