Breadcrumb Ministry

“Hold on tight, this ride is a wild one. Make no mistake, the day will come when you can’t cover up what you’ve done. Now don’t lose your fight kid. It only takes a little push to pull on through. With so much left to do; You’ll be missing out, and we’ll be missing you.”    ~All Time Low

Breadcrumb Ministry


The paperwork is piling up.
The aggression coming to a boil.
An interesting trail of events that led up to this.
A breadcrumb ministry that isn’t entirely my own.

Sent down a path that was different, yet…
It lead to the same spot with unexpected experiences.
The only way to traverse somewhere else is to turn around.
And yet…the experiences down the same path will all be different.

The office is on fire.
My work is going up in flames.
An interesting turn of events from the previous path I took.
A breadcrumb ministry that might have been my own.

Equal opportunities to mess this up.
Equal measures luck, and fate.
Mixed together in a blender that is set only to pulse.
A slow grind that lets’ me choose if  wish to turn around.

What can I say?
What can be said about the way we go about our lives?
Do we need to hold onto more than what it is worth?
Or can we do a minimum with the same results?

The paths lead to the same place.
It leads to an end.
But the problem with an end is there is so much more that is before it.
There is a journey that looks oh so different to the eyes of others.

I know it is hard to do this on your own.
I know the weight of the world is a paper trail.
But you know that it is possible to rely on someone other than yourself.
Letting in more than your own thoughts.

The building is on the fire.
The building is fine.
The end is a result that will come.
But what of the path past the ending?

Do we dare ask the question of eternity.
When all we are focused on is this breadcrumb ministry?
Do we dare discuss the possibility of something more?
In this breadcrumb ministry we are so comfortable living for?
