Go!

And the Lord said “Go!”

And I said, “Who? Me?”

And he said, “Yes. You!”

And I said, “But I’m not ready yet,

And there are friends coming…

And I can’t leave the children…

You know there is no one to take my place.”

And he said, “ You’re stalling!”

Again the Lord said, “Go!”

And I said, “But I dont want to.”

And he said, “I did’t ask you if you wanted to.”

And I said, “ Listen, I’m not that kind of person. I just don’t want to get involved. Besides, my family won’t like it, and what will my neighbours think?”

And he said, “ I’m waiting!”

And yet a third time the Lord said, “Go!”

And I said? “Do I have to?”

And he said, “ Do you love me?”

And I said, “Look, I’m scared! People are going to talk about me and cut me up into little pieces, and I can’t take it all by myself.”

And he said, “Where do you think I’ll be?”

And then the Lord said, “Go!”

And I sighed, “Here I am… send me.”
