Embracing This God-Life

Jesus was matter-of-fact: "Embrace this God-life.
Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you."
"That's why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything,
ranging from small to large. 
Include everything as you embrace this God-life,
and you'll get God's everything. 
And when you assume the posture of prayer,
remember that it's not all asking.
If you have anything against someone,
forgive — only then will your heavenly Father
be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins."

Mark 11:22, 24-25 msg

Faith grows when I embrace You.

Circumstances loom so large
jumping in my face
my sight is so limited
when I see only when is in front of me.

I was created for risk.
Safety comes from following You,
not shrinking back,
hiding in a box. 

"Bring it all to Me.
Every single, little bit."

Looking around 
I want so much to point fingers
to compare
to blame.

"Forgive them," You whisper.
"Forgive, and you will be forgiven."

I am not the judge.
Do I know what is deep inside?

Planks block my view.
Take my hand
let's go together
to the only One who can 
make things as they were meant to be.
