Tattoo Take a leap of faith & Time is running out

I would like to make a tattoo with the following text on a banner.
On one side it's reading: Take a leap of faith. On the other side: Time is running out
I want it in Latin, but first I would like to see if the Latin version appeals to me.
 

Agrippa

Civis Illustris
How about the following translations:
a) Confide tibi - diffluit tempus. Have confidence in yourself - Time is flowing away.
or
b) Aude fidenter- tempus fugit. Have confidently courage - Time is running away.

Thank you Agrippa!
I find 'Confide tibi' & 'Tempus fugit' nice.

Is it possible to use something like:
not being afraid and taking the jump (Take a leap of faith).
You can twist the text by changing the words so it fits better in Latin.

Civis Illustris
Yes, it is possible: Noli timere - confide tibi. Don't be afraid - have confidence in yourself. (Btw, "Fear naught" motto of the Royal Tank Regiment).
