GOD Calling



i want to be
ALIVE--
i don't want to
live the dead life.
i don't want to
be the one
who shrunk into the
shadows of fear,
to be kept for safety
and comfort,
Trading
Radical TRUST
for
commonplace anonymity.

i want
to be ALIVE--
with
Wonder &
Spirit &
Courage &
Daring &
the
Outrageous ASSUMPTION
that
My Life
was
MADE
for
SOMETHING
IMPORTANT
BEAUTIFUL
GOOD.

i want to spend
the stuff of
Who i am
in the
Glorious DISCOVERY
of this
Something,

so that
someday
i can smile
at my MAKER,
whisper Joyfully,
"We had a good ride, yes?"

And to feel the
YES
 of
GOD
smile back.

Thank you. I need to re-read it too! I love how God gives us the desire for more life just when He wants to give us more Life!
