The Safe Life

Mar 6, 2009

Sometimes I think too much. And this is what I’ve been wrestling with since Sunday:

“I think it’s impossible to pursue a safe life and Jesus Christ at the same time.” ~ Robert Gelinas, March 1, 2009

I don’t have any profound insights or stirring revelations. Maybe later. Maybe not. For now I have questions and unknowns. And they force me to consider this:

How many decisions have I made in pursuit of the first rather than the second?

    too many!

  2. Deana

    Many many choices along the safe side – Pursuing Christ over safety takes courage. I read a quote – and cannot find the author (I forgot to mark it) – it stated that “courage is fear that has been baptized.” I like that.

    I’m coming to Nashville this week and DCW in the fall – I’m accepting the fact that its okay to shake like a leaf while pursueing Christ. 😉

  3. Michele

    I find it unnerving how much I’m still making my life all about me. Too often I esteem safety and predictability over radical lived-out faith. I want to believe I’m brave and unafraid, but many of my big decisions would say otherwise!

    (Deana, looking forward to time with you next week!)
