What If?

What if the fire
Is the burning
Not of wrath
But of gold?

What if the loss
And heartbreak
Are not Christ's forsaking
But His holy awakening?

What if our Savior
Who bore our sin and pain
Has not come to condemn
But save us all?

What if the pain and trauma
Are not our shame to carry
But His invitation
To be carried into the light?

What if our dying
To self and sin
Is Christ's doing
In our resting?

What if we trust
In Jesus
And enter in
To heaven's gain?
