I've never claimed to be any good at poetry. I'm not promising that this is a spectacular sample of the verse which I may really be capable of. But this came to me this morning when I was making breakfast. Enjoy.
Would you hold my hand, please,
as I step to the edge
and take this leap of faith.
You don't have to push me,
I'll go on my own.
But it's a frightening ride
to the other side
and I don't want to go alone.
I've been hurt before,
broken and shattered.
But God said He'd catch me
so that's all that matters.
He can stitch me back together.
He can erase all my scars.
But first I have to trust Him
and fall into his arms.
I never saw myself as brave,
but it doesn't matter what I see.
Hold me close as I let go,
and watch Him remake me.
I'm leaving behind my shipwrecked dreams.
I've learned that nothing is as it seems.
God, let me follow Your light, whether in flickers or in beams.
Would you stand beside me, please,
as I fall out of my comfort zone
and discover what my life is for.
