I have the choice of being constantly active and happy or introspectively passive and sad. Or I can go mad by ricocheting in between.

I knew how to help him be a Christian on weekends and evenings. I knew how to teach him how to run a Bible Study, how to evangelize, how to share his faith, but I had no idea how to help integrate his faith with his work. Since 98% of Christians are spending 80% of their time working, we’re giving them almost no help as a church. The church has got to learn how to develop tracks for both church leadership and cultural leadership. In the church, I was only trained how to get more and more laypeople into my church and out of their field. So they’re more active in church and leading Bible Studies and serving on the elder board, but I did not know anything on how to flesh out their faith at their jobs. Yet that’s what will really change the culture.

This is why I question if many people are really living their faith.

And tomorrow is a new day, tomorrow is a day that I could see your face for the first time, maybe sit next to you and make a little small talk.

Tomorrow is an opportunity that I find the courage to ask you out for a drink, and inquire what it is that makes you come alive.

Tomorrow could be the day that I find out what made you who you are, what experience shaped you into the person that makes my heart beat a little faster.

Tomorrow might just be the moment that my hand stops trembling, because I have found a safe place within the gentle gaze of your eyes.

Tomorrow, what a wonderful place it is, where I could have a single second to say something, that would start a million moments with someone, who makes every moment feel as though I am outside of time altogether.

Tomorrow could be the place where I hold your hand, feeling the next 60 years being born in between the folds of our hands.

Tomorrow, what a brilliant thought it is, to know that you might be hidden within that day, just waiting to say hello and starting this grand adventure with me.
