Lived above my means for a while
lived below my means with a smile
Gave up on my dreams a few times
Still I leaned on God and he kept me
Wrapped in his arms where I belong.
No one else there
I was alone.
I knew he had me but
I searched for others places to call home.
Still without asking, he forgave and granted me grace where I wasn’t strong.
Where I procrastinated and stifled myself
He pushed me along.
Then I set a goal and exceeded it
But because it was so far from what I’d experienced before
I only saw defeat in it.
I didn’t step on the stones that were thrown at my house because it caused so much pain.
I know now that the trials and losses, the lies And the gossip were the steps being built
Leading my way for the very second I choose to get out…
