If Not Now, When?*

While seeking, I learn the value of listening;
while listening, I accept the value of waiting;
while waiting,
I fall hopelessly into
the comfortable resting places
of familiar security and habitual reliance…
…until waiting becomes
simply being stuck
in the bog of my human wants
and faithless fears.

Draw me out, dear One,
from this murky comfort that keeps me from
all You have planned for me.

If not now, when?!
