I’m living in comfort, no worries, no stress; but not giving God my very best.
Taking more than I’m willing to give, and not prepared for human nature to die so I may truly live.
Dipping my toe in His work, but not ready to be engulfed in desire to serve.
Fear of failure commitment and time, is easier to swallow than my pride.
Yesterday I devoted myself completely, until I had nothing left to give, and yet my internal scars remain with me until I no longer live.
Mediocrity is my way of protecting myself from future pain, because if my best is not enough, then I don’t have so much to re-gain.
I want to soar on eagles’ wings, but spectating is easier than enduring the stings,
That can come as a price of following the One, and taking up my baton with a heart to run.
But is it not a worthy price, when it can lead a child back to Christ?
Completely transform their lives, and do the same for others despite the strife?
So no more hesitation, no more second thoughts,
Just a sign of strength by letting God run his course.
