The proverbial "leap of faith" is actually the size of a mustard seed. Keep going. And by the way, look at St. Augustine. Don't become disheartened that you made bad choices in the past; make the best choice you ever made by turning to the Lord-- watch as the Lord, through the Sacraments, reorients your life and puts a lot of broken pieces back together.
2 Cor 5:7 "For we live habitually (without fail by what we see in the Spirit,where we experience limitless power according to the power that works within us). We see beyond the natural with its limitations .We live this way day in and day out. And as a result we win all the time!
Fully trusting God will enable you to take that leap of faith. God knows our heart and the true desires of it. What a testimony it has been since I stepped out taking a huge leap of faith - trusting that God would in fact lead the way. I have been astounded by the protection and provision provided by God - but it all begun by putting my trust in him. God is so good!
