Sometimes

“Sometimes”

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.

Sometimes you have to speak out
Against doubts,
Against confusion,

Against any and every negative thought

Sometimes you have to stand up straight and hold your head high.

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.

No,

Purely because of Who is on your team,
Of Who you know has your back.

And even though you’re scared to death

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.

So one day at a time,
One step at a time,
One conversation at a time,
One thought a time
Make the steps as small as you need,

As slow as you need to be able to keep taking them.
Small increments, small advancements
Whatever it takes

Sometimes life get’s crazy

Life gets confusing,

Life gets hard

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.

Stopping isn’t an option
Because then everything you’ve gone through,
All the ground you’ve made so far,

Everything you’ve risked until now,
It would all be a waste.

 

So maybe I don’t know where I’m going

Maybe I don’t know what I’m doing.
Maybe I don’t know what the future holds.
But I do know who holds my hand

Whether I can feel Him right now or not,
And for that reason, stopping is not an option

Sometimes we need a word of encouragement,
Sometimes we all need to be reminded that it’s going to be okay

So keep going,
Whatever that may mean for you,
Just keep going.
