Believe it or not, our purpose of life is everywhere, especially when we can actually have the courage to see it. Which is difficult, and sometimes a bitter place. Hidden hope is also a thing we have to have the heart and courage to look for also. Don't take hope so lightly, discouragement will follow. And don't get me wrong, I'm ready to get this rocket ship off the ground just as much as you do. My eyes get weary on the horizon. Maybe I look too hard on occasion. We all have those moments where we take a big step back and ask, "Is this my life?" Always answer with a hardy yes. This will also take a huge amount of courage, but it can be done. We blaze through the steps and just look at the possible outcome. Well, chickens, outcome is never predictable, and hardly ever looks like what we wanted to accomplish in the first place. That, is okay! It might be different. It might look like an ostrich when you asked for a sleek panther. Grab that ostrich and live the love out of it. Which is all we can do, and realistically, ask ourselves to do. At this point, we have way too many to-do lists, way too many expectations, when all in all, we gotta give ourselves a pat on the back to keep moving forward. We made it this far, sucka, and I will keep going! When the will dies, we die. Even when we can't admit it. It's written all over our faces. It looks like yesterday's mascara underneath our eyelids. Keep in mind the ostrich. Live the love out of it, and rebuke the naysayers.
Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:13-14
