New Hope 14

This is the dilemma
to stay or to go --
to serve my world
and risk infection,
or to stay home
in its relative safety
and wait for the plague to lift.

A rigorous watching of the news
tells me I may remain
isolated for days, perhaps weeks,
but my life is passing too quickly
and there is much to be done.

Lord, give me the wisdom
to do what You want 
that my life will be useful to others
even in ways I may not comprehend
as I give, I pray, I share, and I wait.
