what do we have to lose? what is there to gain?

These days stream into each other. The warmth of yesterday faded. Newborn colors of today blushed into sunrise. Tonight is a cold wind chilling to the bone, it catches in my throat like stage fright. What will tomorrow bring? All humanity will rise up from dreams and momentary rest into yet another morning. There are some who never stop, always barreling forward full force–missing it. Others hang back, paralyzed by possibilities–missing it. What do we have to lose? What is there to gain? Lose this life to find Life.

I have calmed and quieted my soul. I have waited all the day long for Him, and I will wait tomorrow too. I will do what I know until the path set before me is revealed. I wait and hope, surrender and obey… I wait and hope I might someday learn to surrender and obey.

“Make me to know your ways, O Lord;
teach me your paths.
Lead me in your truth and teach me,
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all the day long.”
Psalm 25:4-5
