Crossing the Line

Leashes break and dogs bite,
so the speaker said.
If you’re going to play with fire,
you know what lies ahead.
Is that what I’ve done
in returning to a danger zone?
Should I not know by now
to leave well enough alone?
Are my actions of kindness
what triggered the mines?
Do I mistake helping
for crossing the line?
God is a guide
who wants to lead,
who tells me to kick the darkness
until daylight starts to bleed.
May I follow in faithfulness
while being gentle with all.
May I be present and ready
when He gives the call.

I wrote this 6 years ago. I don’t remember exactly what I was thinking, but I know it was to conceal my own thought while being brutally honest about surface material. I did a good job of concealing it from myself. 😉

It's not about me. It's all about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
