CHOOSE GO OR STAY

Psalm 84:7  They go from strength to strength.

  Oliver Wendel Holmes wrote:

Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul,
As the swift seasons roll
Leave they low-vaulted past
Let each new temple, nobler than the last
Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,
Till thou at length art free,
Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea.

Some of us do not rest very long before we hear new calls for us to move forward, perhaps to build bigger buildings or write another novel or climb another mountain. And many of us will heed that call and go forward knowing we have a new challenge. This feeds us inside just as food feeds the body.
To those of us who do this, we prefer this way of life to one where you sit, on a chair and watch a box all day we prefer to live our life not watch someone else live theirs.

Prayer:  Lord God help us this day to hear your call to send us forth to climb the mountains, write the novels, build the buildings that you have for us to do. Let us never just give up and sit down and quit living this precious life you gave us. Amen
