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."
I want so much to point fingers
"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.
