I did it!
I finally submitted this piece of paper that dictates my future.
All 1500 words reflecting my passion and zeal of what’s to come
All I really want is for some-one to come say “There you have it folks, she’s in!”
Seriously, I curiously await a decision from those that do not know me or understand the struggle it took to get to even this place….
I hope new memories erase the old ones of disappointment as I pass this familiar corner again
I can believe, that my God did not leave me to play déjà vu – but instead, He is operating in the unseen
Picking up even these pieces that scattered on the floor as failure smashed my dreams.
I believe that this time is different and that in this moment, a catalyst occurred fueling a great exchange
A great change from failure to success, from worst to best
I choose to believe in nothing less than the truth that my God loves me
And that in this great love was the will to move ahead
To allow what’s dead to remain dead as I choose to live
in the newness of Him.
So yeah tonight I took a leap of faith and I stepped out of my comfort boat and I was beckoned to come
I came, I walked and I stayed above the water that sought to sink me
