It’s Monday

Posted on · Posted in Faith, Fear of the Lord

It’s early Monday morning, very early. 

What makes this Monday different from last Monday?  

Will I ask the same question next Monday?

Will there be a next Monday?

Will faith be deeper?

Will hopes grow more distant?

Will love bless or curse?

Will I be bound by perceptions of weakness?

Will fears make me less vulnerable?

Will love curse or bless?

Will I fear to risk?

Will I run from my dream?

Will I trust the light in the darkness?

Will love bless or curse?

Will I embrace death to know life?

Will I nourish or starve?

Will I honor doubt or truth?

Will I trust?

Will love bless?

Will I have the courage to choose life?

It’s early Monday morning, very early.
