Stepping out on this journey
In just a simple moment’s faith.
Traversing life’s uneven pathway
Determined not to pause or wait.
Giving the world but a passing glance,
Strong and confident, running ahead,
Caught up in the dance.
Then suddenly, I whirled around
Discovering an unexpected twist.
The path before me spiraled upward
On a course I would not have guessed.
The road ahead, no longer familiar-
In shoes I did not choose to wear.
But as I turned to double back,
The path had somehow disappeared.
Paralyzed with fear,
Unable to move from where I stood.
Falling earthward, crying out-
Seemed the only thing I could.
Then faith sparked from a touch,
“Do you want to be made whole?
Rise up and walk, my daughter-
Come, now let us go.”
Never abandoned as I travel,
His Heart, life’s destination.
Stepping out in faith victorious,
Immersed in marvelous celebration.
A journey, not only about that first step,
Nor even reaching its glorious end,
But how the Sovereign King of Glory
Becomes my love, my trusted friend.
