I've asked You to move me
And I realize in order for You to move wthin me
I need to take the first step.
You've shown me this a while back
And I didn't understand.
Part of me didn't want to understand,
Because my first step requires me to leave the place I love most.
I've had a fear of doing that
For here is where I feel closest to my mother.
Here is also the place that I hold onto the things that keep me from moving forward.
It's the place I've known all my life
It is a hard thing to leave behind,
But I know it is the right thing to do.
You wouldn't lead me in an incorrect way.
And the time has come to say goodbye to the place I've called home.
I'm sorry that I didn't act sooner
And am thankful for Your patience, Father.
I feel guilty because I didn't act sooner, but I am now.
The decision has been made,
Plans are set in place.
Each of them I do for You, Father.
Here I come, Father,
Light the path before me
For I'll be traveling down a road, new and unfamiliar.
I will not fear, for You are with me.
I've shared with You my desires as I begin this journey.
There are many hurdles to overcome,
All of which, Im going to need Your assistance.
I'm looking forward to it,
And I'm ready to leave my unfulfilling life behind.
Bless the road, Father,
Not just for me but for all who travel the same road,
Both now and in the future.
I ask this in Jesus' name,
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty,
Who was, and is, and is to come.
