Something I Wish I Had Written - Elisabeth Klein

i believe that God has made this day,
that it’s good,
and you can have joy in it.
even if you’re limping.

can you make this confession with me today?
can you say with me ‘i feel like i’m just getting started?’

you can be old,
you can even be over 40,
you can have a lot of life behind you,
and yet you’re being renewed,
you’re being reborn,
you’re wide eyed and filled with wonder,
you’ve tasted and you’ve seen in such a way
that you realize
you’re just getting started.

the past and the present and the future begin
to meld into one giant eternal now
and you understand in that moment
what Jesus was talking about when he said
he came to give us that kind of life.

i feel like i’m just getting started.
i feel like i’m just getting started.
i feel like i’m just getting started.

-Rob Bell-

I have felt this alive before, and I’m trusting I will again. We are just getting started.
