The harder I try to hold on
The more I seem to sink lower;
My head is telling me let go
My heart is so full of fear.
If I let go of feeling secure
What will I have in it’s place?
Well – possibly a new found freedom
Do I therefore trust in God’s grace?
The road less travelled is not an easy one
Yet my options are closing in;
I know I need to take a deep breath
Pick up my pen and begin.
Where it may lead I do not know
I guess it doesn’t matter where;
Inside the fear sometimes grips my heart
Then I hear Jesus say “It’s OK I care”.
“Take my hand and I’ll show you
The next step is all you need take”;
Negative thoughts and chains of fear
Jesus assures me he will break.
Today I put my hand in his
and let go of what holds me back;
With him by my side, continuing on
Assured there’s nothing I will lack.
