(was / are / will be) / now

Aug 22 2011

For every inch of life that burns in me
there is a mile that screams “you are not who you want to be”
and some days the doubt is right
because I am not at a long-term place
I am in process. It is a place, but not the place.

Other days it is wrong. I am who I want to be
a redeemed son of God living his life as a sacrifice
from God, to God, so others can know God.
I am this all the time; but some days I wish I were doing it there
as opposed to here
and then
as opposed to now

and that’s a sin. Because I am here.
To overlook now for the then is to miss God now
and then when will “then” be?
I may never see God as I ought

for the now is all there is;
for who can know when we evaporate?
So I must be what I can be now.
I must live the life given me to the full,
and not yearn for tomorrow.
I want to be alive today.

for every inch of life that burns in me
there is a mile that screams “you are not who you want to be”
