The Long Silence 

I know I hold back. I know I’m the person in the parable who buries their talent for fear of losing it.

What I don’t quite know is what I’m afraid of.

When it comes to physical stuff, I’m afraid of getting hurt. I guess that’s probably the same in the rest of my life too. So how can I overcome that?

By just stepping out and doing it. By pushing myself beyond what I feel are my limits.

I guess wanting to is a first step too and recognizing that burying the talent displeases the Master.

Lord, please help me step out of the boat. I don’t know what you want me to do out there, but I know that if I keep my eyes on you, sink or walk, you’ll take care of me and you’ll take care of the results that you want to see happen.
