I’ve been saying

I’ve been saying
“I don’t need more friends”
for years.
Funny how,
now that I want them,
they all seem to have
drifted away.

How much?

How much do you
want
this?
Enough to
keep
your day job?
Enough to
work
every time you have a free minute?
What are you willing to
give
up?
Because you’ll have to say no,
you know, and
not
just to the things you
don’t
like doing.
We all only get
24
hours in a day. So
what will you spend
your
day doing?
Are you willing to take a
class?
How about two?
Are you willing to
hear
the hard things
as well as the good? Are you willing to
change
if you have to? Or maybe even
give up
parts of your dream that
no longer work?
Do you know how to set goals,
standards,
for yourself? Are you willing to
save, and
save, and
save, knowing you may
never
get to leave your day job?
How hard are you willing to
work? How much do you
love
this thing you’re doing? Do you
love
it enough that it
doesn’t matter
how long it takes anyone else to appreciate it?
Is it enough that,
for a long time, the
only
person guaranteed to love it
is you?

Give it patience

Give it patience
Holy joy
Prepare to be the author of your
Love,
A revelation,
An opportunity.
Be held
And encounter love
Weakness to victory,
Testimony to healing.
Walk with me.
