The Postman has a wonderful new poem titled "Follow or Forsake?". I urge you to read it.
Lord, what did I give up for you?
Everything I hoped to do.
Lord, what did I get back from you?
Everything--and also You.
I also consider everything to be a loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Because of Him I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them filth, so that I may gain Christ and be found in Him...
--from Philippians 3:8-9, HCSB
