I have a thought, it’s a little risky

I’m comfortable where  I am

I’m about ready to move forward

But I’m afraid of the traffic jams


To grow and become active

Carries responsibilities anew

More glut is added to it

Stuff, I don’t like to do


The ox is big and strong

Look at all that he can do

He makes field work lighter

But he leaves a messy poo


I have to feed him everyday

He’s unkempt and makes a mess

Always cleaning up behind him

Chores increase the more, not the less


To sit and do no work

I’m in control of my space

I’m safe, secure and clean

No fear, have I to face


Jesus calls me to the deep

Beyond safety, must I go

Awake me from escaping sleep

His pleasure, I desire to know


Take the risk that He offers

Firm conviction, abiding peace within

All decisions have more to them

Abundance awaits, when you begin
