What if freedom's price is higher than I want to pay down the road?
What if the investments of the years, of the now, come up hollow?
What if I am not ready for love until all my chances have passed me by?
What if fear doesn't own me?
What if I am strong in Someone else's strength?
What if that Someone is more faithful than any man I know?
What if all of my friends forget me?
What if there is One who sticks closer than a brother?
What if friendship's price is a high stakes sacrifice?
What if the wounds of a friend are the faithful sort?
What loss, if my heart were not shared with those I have been gifted...
What if all the unknowns crash in on me?
What if the future is darker than I know?
Then I'm glad I can't see it.
I'm glad I know the Faithful One.
I'm grateful that Someone knows what I need and when.
I'm glad my timing is not what matters.
I'm glad this life of mine isn't about me.
I'm thankful for Love Eternal.
Thankful for deep calling out to deep.
Grateful that I am not alone.
I am grateful that the price of my freedom has been paid.
That I know the Light of the world.
That He was wounded for my transgressions.
That I need no longer bear the marks of sin in my body.
I am free.
Free to give.
Free to live.
Free to love.
Free to be fearless.
Free to face the unknown.
Free to be known—and still loved.
Free to drink deep of the waters of Life.
...I am free?
