The Most Important Thing(s) I Have Learned So Far
The most important thing I have learned in doing my life and paying attention as I did it is:
When I come to the edge of my known universe, when I come to the end of where the light shines for me. It is from this point on that I have to be a risk taker. It’s when I have to go blindly off into something or someplace I have never seen or been before. Of course the alternative is possible. I can shrink away from moving forward—I can shrink away from exploring God’s Gift.
What I have discovered is: when I step off into my darkness and it is the darkness of my unknown, it is then that I grow. It is then that I come to know. It is then that I notice the light.
God Will Either
Provide Something Solid For Me To Stand On
When I Step Out Into My Unknown
... Or ...
I Will Be Taught How To Both
Build Wings And To Fly
On the Way Down
