It’s not a matter of how close I am getting,
Walking down this tunnel,
It’s more where I am.
Can I see more as I get closer?
Yes, but the light is so bright … it hurts my eyes,
And illuminates all my past;
Plus reason wants me to stay where I am.
I know what the ground is where I stand,
I can trust myself and God evenly here,
But not when I move forward.
I have to trust Him more than me,
To want to be closer,
More than being safe, holding onto what I have.
I can’t stand still,
I have come this far,
And still want to be closer to Him.
The only way forward is trust.
