Choose to Fly

There have been times

I would rather

Curl up in a corner

Than dive off the cliff

Into my day.

Today was one of those days.

With all that’s going on

In the lives of family members

And friends,

I feel as if my mind and heart

Are in a vice.

I am having trouble

Sorting it all out.

Ignorance is bliss.

So the saying goes.

Sometimes

It’s true.

However,

Being unaware of the pain

And challenges

That others face

Will only guarantee one thing.

I will never accomplish

The good works prepared for me.

And that is unacceptable.

My vision is seriously limited.

But I will choose to fly

Nonetheless.

And I will seek to bless

Each one I encounter.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them (Ephesians 2:10, ESV).
