A Few Questions

A Few Questions

Why am I doing this?
What am I striving for?
Who is this about?
Where to next?

What have I gotten myself into?
Will I regret this?
Have I given it enough thought?
Am I thinking too hard?

What are my priorities?
Can I live with the trade-offs?
Am I a good husband and father?
According to who?

Am I overly ambitious?
Am I too easily satisfied?
Am I working too hard?
Am I slacking off?

Too driven?
Too lukewarm?
Aiming too high?
Settling?

Is the struggle really worth it?
What will it cost me?
Have I sacrificed too much or not enough?
Why so many questions?

Am I taking care of myself?
Am I too self-absorbed?
What am I trying to prove?
Do I understand grace?

Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Isn't my life now hidden with Christ?
Haven't I been found by the Great Shepherd?
If I know Who is God, why can't I be still?

Hi Dan,

This period of your life will not last forever. Hold on! When you were in the 6th grade, you made me a painted wooden hanger that said, "Hang on to God's word in your heart." Still true 18 years later.
