signing on the dotted line

There comes a time when the pen stands poised, and the man says, Sign here. 

You know when pen hits paper you’re all in.  The risk will be sealed. 

For just one moment there’s an intense look into God’s eyes and the question, Are you sure this is what you want me to do? 

It’s a breath-holding second when the assurance and yes are quiet.  When not even the tiniest promise is given about how things will turn out once you commit.  God makes eye contact but says nothing.  No tell flitters across His face to reveal His hand. 

Faith stands naked, all alone.  Exposed. 

And all the joy and love and depth of relationship with God stand waiting for the flourish of signature.   

Will you commit? 

We walk by faith, not by sight.”  (2 Corinthians 5:7  NASB)
