having it all.

God reminds us,

I heard your call in the nick of time; the day you needed me, I was there to help.

don’t put it off; don’t frustrate God’s work by showing up late, throwing a question mark over everything we’re doing.

our work as God’s servants gets validated—or not—in the details.

people are watching us as we stay at our post, alertly, unswervingly . . .

when we’re telling the truth, & when God’s showing His power;

when we’re doing our best setting things right;

when we’re praised & when we’re blamed;

slandered & honored;

true to our word, though distrusted;

ignored by the world, but recognized by God;

terrifically alive, though rumored to be dead;

beaten within an inch of our lives, but refusing to die;
