A chapter in the book Living in the Son Shine

Just a Game?

by Susan Louise Gabriel




A thousand cuts, a thousand choices

every day to make anew.

Am I doomed?

Was I fooled?

In this Game of Life, I wonder,

do I understand the rules?

Can I ever reach the final

goal I'm heading toward?

Can I find a way to move my token

on this board?

Can I find a way to keep myself 

from slipping, 

sliding, 

stalling?

Fear of falling

off the Ladder falls upon me as I ponder—

"Which way takes me further, yonder?"


With a head that's filled with questions

and a heart that's filled with fear,

I'm afraid to make a misstep 

and afraid to stay right here.

How does 

anybody know

which way to go?

Which way to be?

To me

it’s just a mystery.
 
Jesus can You help me out?

Please pull me out 

of this self-doubt.

Hold my hand

and don’t let go.

Lead the way,

fast or slow.

It’s not mine; it's 

now your show.

 




"Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 3:13-14
