I can’t but I can

I can’t have a name to protect.

I can’t look pretty.

I can’t have stuff that I am holding on to.

I can’t give my heart away to anyone or anything.

I can’t have a reputation.

I can’t have a beautiful life to build.

But I can actually have them and ask You to be patient with me and be understanding with me… but the question is how many more people have to die while You wait for me to lose

my name

my reputation

to get back my heart from the things, places and people I gave it to

while You wait for me to lose my stuff

while You wait for me to build my beautiful life?

What is a beautiful life anyway without You, Jesus?
