Sent from God

A scary thing it is
to be sent by anyone,
    especially God.
Going not for self or gain,
but for Him, His purposes,
     a heavy weight indeed.

With hands off the controls,
you get in and go,
      wherever, whenever.
Not always knowing why,
only His bidding in front,
      an uncertain way for sure.

A journey of twists and turns,
mostly surprising and unexpected,
      just hanging on.
Only God knows what's ahead
a thing most kept to Himself,
      just sent and signed on to go.

(John 1:6)
