Sometime in the past you made this decision to give your life to the maker
It was a conscious, deliberate act… you knew that it was the only way to go
So you began this journey of a lifetime…
In the beginning, you were fired up…
Your tank was full…
Your energy was burning so hot you could have melted ice. You yearned for more everyday
You looked around and hoped that one day you would walk like the others
You couldn’t wait so you held on to passages that allowed you stand for a while
You prayed yourself to sit up straight…
You even tasted the glory of walking for a few seconds… You were reminded of why you chose to follow
But one day… you went to bed with your gate slightly open
You ignored the nudging and chose to toy with the things of the past
You felt guilty the first time you fell… The guilt gradually eroded with every other fall
Now you know that the fire is gone, your tank is empty… your energy waned
But rather than let that lie sit comfortably with you
The lie that says “you cannot make it”, “you are only human”, “you have failed already!” “Give up!”
The lie that whispers… It is easier on the other side.
My darling, know today that this yoke is easier… this burden lighter
Come back to your first Love
Choose to never look back again
Child, stand up… walk, RUN….
What is before you is a race!
A race you only decide to run as a child or a man
The gift of salvation is free… holding fast to that gift however requires work
