the journey so far

i.
the past seven years
were like hand-holding.
you assured me that all i needed to do was
"cut along the dotted lines
this paint-by-number life"
and hey, it turned out beautiful.

ii.
of course there were bad times
when you'd let me go just to explore a bit
but like any good father,
when i stumbled too far
and got lost in the forest,
you still welcomed me back.
even when i was miles away
i always felt your love.

iii.
in the process, though,
i guess i got a bit cocky.
after all the success,
i thought i could do it on my own.
all the challenges you gave me
were still well below
my range of ability.
and so the lies began.

iv.
now, this challenge lies before me
you called me to lead
something bigger than myself.
so i'm back here
on my knees
begging for mercy, courage,
& the Spirit only you offer

why did i think i could manage
this life on my own,
when You're the one that gave it?
