By fidelity and valour.
I came. I saw. I didn't like what I saw. I left.

I think God sees our failed launches in the same way. He sees us flying over the handlebars in slow motion, and while He never wants to see us hurt, He knows it can happen from time to time when we live a life of total engagement. I think He sees the outcomes before they happen too and calls to us over the noise in our lives warning of something that won’t go well. Like Adam, we often don’t hear the warning call and race through the gears only to find ourselves upside down in the sand. After we come to, He dusts us off, helps us to our feet, and He hears us say, “That was awesome.” More than once when I’ve crashed and burned, I’ve felt Him lean in closely to me after picking up the pieces of my life and whisper back to me, “You know what? It was.”

There’s nothing like deep breaths after laughing that hard. Nothing in the world like a sore stomach for the right reasons.
