Sometimes I feel
like I can’t figure out a thing
I don’t know where I’m going

I stand at an open gate
and wonder which direction to take

get shoved to the back of my mind
roughed up, knocked down
by negative thought bullies

I feel panic start to rise

Insecurity quickly
steals my joy

And then I remember

I don’t have to do this alone

I have the Holy Spirit
within me
I have a guide and a compass
right in my heart

what it is I believe

I will determine
what is “right”

I will know
what God speaks to my heart

I will release
judgment and fear

I will be ready
to follow my heart
and all
that is revealed
