Do I take risks like the wiseones of old
Do i take risks when it comes to worshiping God?
Do I take risks in order to follow where God is leading?
Do I hesitate
Do I over think things
Do I wonder too much about what others might think?
Am I willing to leave it all?
Am I willing to cross deserts and mountains?
To leave all that is safe and familiar to go where He leads
Or to Go where I think, where I feel where I believe God is leading?
What keeps me from going?
What keeps me frozen in place
Uncertainty… that I’ve heard
Uncertain that I truly know and can truly trust in Him.
What is it that won’t allow me to go and ask the hard questions and
Seek out His star, no matter what the darkness
No matter what the risk
No matter what the barrier?
How can I remember,
No.,..help me to remember that darkness is not dark to you
That you invented light that you are the light of the world
That has come to banish all our darkness. Yet it takes the darkness
Often to perceive the light.
Darkness is not dark to you
Uncertainty is not a word in your vocabulary
You know our plans
You perceive my thoughts
And you still love me anyway….
The light of the world has come
To all people .,..the Light has come!
Everything was created through him;
nothing—not one thing!—
came into being without him.
What came into existence was Life,
and the Life was Light to live by.
The Life-Light blazed out of the darkness;
the darkness couldn't put it out.
