Bruised, Broken, Stained and Cynical... I refuse. . .
I cannot step out of my own heart, unless I clothe my nakedness with His Spirit.
And so, I choose Joy, I choose Purity, I choose Innocence, I choose Peace, I choose Faith. . .
Not Faith just for the sake of Faith – but active Faith – radical, moving, dynamic, pulsing. . .
There are so many questions...Unanswered... Too many broken hearts, rejected, abandoned. . .
Yet, I choose to live with the query...To embrace that not yet known. . .
To live with everything...Joy, Sorrow, Loss, Abundance, Innocence, even Ugliness. . .
I yearn to know the heart of God; I must have the heart of God beat within my breast, even if to know such intimacy is sometimes to suffer...to bleed tears...to hemorrhage. . .
Yet to by no means hemorrhage Hope. . .
Oh, my soul, Listen...Take heart. . .
Let us choose to live the questions joyfully and yes, to perhaps live on into the Answer. . .
I choose. . .
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
