Beat of my own drum

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away" ~Henry David Thoreau

I've decided to take up a life of risk.
A life of daring, adventure, uncertainty and mystery.
A life worth living, no meaninglessness, no "boredom".
This is the beginning of a life instep with God.
A feat which is not going to be easy.
It will involve each day taking up my 'cross' and dying unto myself.

How hard will this be!!!
My human spirit is one of selfishness, lust, greed and laziness. One where I totally do what to live a cushy life with no hassles, no decisions harder than "juice or softdrink?", "skirt or jeans?".
No, now my life is to be in tune with God. My feet are to follow the path unknown.
A path undertaken by Christ alone. He has dealt with all the issues and difficulties I will face, He alone is sufficient to get me through them.
Though others may take up the same challenge, our journey will come to the same place, but our feet will all march to our own drum.
What use has God with an army of clones?
I have been created unique and individually for a mission only I can full fill, same as you.
I have been created for such a time as this.
