Felix Baumgartner will go down in history for many things, particularly for being the first man to break the sound barrier without vehicular power. That's right - Felix is a stuntman/risk taker to the extreme. His expertise? Skydiving. On October 14, 2012 Felix took a helium balloon up into the stratosphere and jumped to the earth. He is the first man to attempt such a jump. In this midst of his 4-minute plus free fall Felix had to stabilize himself and fight to keep consciousness. The result was a completed goal and an incredible legacy. –Jim L. Wilson and Tessa Johnstone
Felix Baumgartner: Supersonic Skydive 'Like Swimming Without Touching the Water' by Ryan Owens http://abcnews.go.com/US/felix-baumgartner-supersonic-skydive-swimming-touching-water/story?id=17479415#.UJGwIGe4J8E (accessed on October 27, 2012)
God asks us to take leaps of faith to trust him every day. Maybe they are not as intense as falling to the earth from the stratosphere, but sometimes they are risks that feel just as difficult for us. The key to doing this is submitting in faith and trusting in God’s power.
Hebrews 11:6 (HCSB) Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him.
