What if...? | Marvelous Mundane

What if faithfulness doesn’t equal fame, or glory, or acclaim,

What if faithfulness whispers unwelcomed quiet, heart-wrenching pain,

What if faithfulness stirs up doubts, and wrestles unbelief,

What if faithfulness plants backstabbing kisses on my cheek?

-

What if faithfulness shares abandonment, and confronted fears,

What if faithfulness bears a heavy cross, and blood soaked tears,

What if faithfulness results in mocking words and harsh-tossed shame,

What if faithfulness compels curses hurtled towards my name?

-

What if faithfulness breaks ambitions, squashes dreams,

What if faithfulness requires stepping into unforeseen,

What if faithfulness births new beginnings, off well-worn paths,

What if faithfulness breathes eternal purpose, life that lasts?

-

What if faithfulness creates joy unfettered, heartfelt peace,

What if faithfulness stills the wrestling to achieve,

What if faithfulness calms an anxious heart, a burdened soul,

What if faithfulness brings brokenness that makes me whole?
