Sometimes you have to just get on your knees and cry your heart out
And sure, maybe you’ve just lost your mind and are speaking to empty space
But somehow you know that you are being heard
Because you are somehow filled with peace
You are filled with the sense that you are loved,
And you walk away knowing that it will be okay.
Against any and every negative thought
Not because you feel good,
Not because you’re a strong person
Not because you’ve got it all figured out
Not because of anything you have done, or will do, or could do in the future.
Purely because of Who is on your team,
Of Who you know has your back.
Even though you have no idea how this might work,
You keep on walking.
Even though you don’t know exactly what you’re walking towards
You keep on walking
Simply because you know Who’s holding your hand.
Even though you don’t know what will happen between now and the end
You keep on moving
Because you know in the end Who will still be by your side.
As slow as you need to be able to keep taking them.
Small increments, small advancements
Whatever it takes
Life gets confusing,
Sometimes you feel like not loving people,
Sometimes you feel like not loving God
Sometimes you feel like not loving yourself
But you stop yourself,
You ask for help,
You keep on going.
Everything you’ve risked until now,
It would all be a waste.
So maybe I don’t know where I’m going
Whether I can feel Him right now or not,
And for that reason, stopping is not an option
So keep going,
Whatever that may mean for you,
Just keep going.
