to live

An Essay By Aisling // 10/5/2008

To live is not just to exist.
It's so much more in-depth than that, so much more daring, so much more dangerous.
To live is to take a risk, a great and holy risk. And what do we risk?
Our lives.

To live is to believe, when all the odds are against us, and fear is like a bad dream lurking to undo our insides... To live is to hope, when the lights have gone out and loneliness is our last companion... To live is to love, when it might leave our hearts broken, and feel like the death of everything we were waiting for.
To live is to abide in the open broken wound of the heart of God, feeling His blood flow into and over our own brokenness, breathing deeply of His peace, His fidelity, His promise.

And His promise is life.
