Sometimes Morning can be more frightening than the night.
When the sun goes down you know what you have done for that day. There is always some level of certainty, either good or bad. You know what you have accomplished and what you have not. You know if it was a good or bad day, productive or a waste.
But Morning brings uncertainty.
And uncertainty can be more frightening than the darkest of nights.
Morning rides a blazing chariot, surrounded by colorful lofty clouds, pulled by horses that do not have names. Morning brings about the unknown, just like the unnamed horses that carry it.
However, the older I get the more I have come to love uncertainty. The older I get the more of a morning person I become.
With every Morning that comes I learn more and more that the blazing chariot pulled by the unnamed horses also brings a gift to me. Riding the colorful lofty clouds, wrapped in the delicately in uncertainty,
Morning delivers freedom.
Freedoms to go, transform, and create the day into whatever I want. To be what I choose, and to make my life into what I want it to be.
But without uncertainty there is no real freedom. Comfort is an invisible prison. I would rather live uncomfortably free than allow my soul to rot in a well-accommodated cell. My greatest blessing in this life has been that God will not leave me alone, even though I sometimes ask for that. He will not allow me to become comfortable, because he wants me to be free.
So he sends Morning in a blazing chariot, pulled by unnamed horses delivering to me the greatest gift of all.
Freedom delicately wrapped in uncertainty.
Since realizing this over the years, my entire view on everything has changed.
Some people would say that I simply have the worst luck of all, that I cannot catch a break. But that cannot be further from the truth.
Being certainly uncertain is the best feeling that anyone can have, and I would not trade if for anything.
So what’s next for me? Honestly I don’t want to know. That would just make me comfortable and I’d rather not live like that.
So what will I do now? I know many of you would like me to answer that, but the truth is I have only been given today’s morning. And to be completely honest I would rather not know, because if I had things my way I would have been a comfortable slave for a while now.
I do know one thing, and of this I am certain.
Today I am free.
Morning brought me that.
I am uncertain about tomorrow, but I am certainly ok with that!
Do not fear the unknown. Don’t be afraid of uncertainty. It is a gift from God. It is the keys to the comfortable shackles that will forever hold you from accomplishing great things.
Grab uncertainty and float away into the colorful lofty clouds because that is where freedom lives.
