Reading Colossians 2
We, on the Way
We have been placed on this way.
Can we walk anywhere else, having been here?
We have embraced this new way of living,
not entering only a spiritual, mystical place,
but embracing new life, yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Today we have been blessed unexpectedly,
and Monday I was blessed.
The burdens weighed upon me this week,
as loved ones suffered and left this world in constant pain.
The burdens weighed upon me a week ago,
as my work pressed upon me, and uncertainty awoke me.
I thought to leave this path.
I thought to misbehave.
I thought selfish thought.
I thought I might leave this way.
Where would I go?
Is there some other place that illumines me?
Where would I find life?
On this way, I find my eternity.
My mansion is made.
Light my way, Lord.
