The Road of Daring

Far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory, or defeat.”
-Theodore Roosevelt-

Are you willing to risk anything for God?  Are you afraid of taking a step of faith and doing something you have never done before?

Too many people live a life of mediocrity because they are content with staying the same, doing things the same way they have always done.  They live in a land of comfort, unwilling to trouble the waters to dare something different, to do something spectacular for the glory of God.  

There are two roads we can take in life.  The road of ease which is a road that knows no risk or change.  Or we can take the road less traveled.  The road of daring which is a road that knows not what is at the end but finds excitement in discovering, that if we only would take a risk for God, He will bring us to another place.  This road of daring is only traveled by brave soldiers of the Cross who are not afraid of failure and who are willing to face failure to do something significant for the kingdom of God. 

Which road are you traveling on?

  1. Nice post! Very inspiring, and I really liked the Teddy Roosevelt quote (i’m going to post that on my Facebook page). In keeping with the theme, here’s another famous bit of verse from The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost (though one you’ve already referred to above).

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
