Leap of Faith


God opened a door,

but I refused to walk in.

The door was closed so long,

I didn’t know where to begin.

Fear of the unknown,

proved to be the greatest fear of all.

It refused to let me take a step,

and brought terror that I’d fall.

So without the courage to merely start,

life became empty and dry.

I knew that something was missing,

but to find it was too hard to try.

With complacency my only option,

it was the safest route indeed.

In this state I felt most secure,

til faith came and planted its seed.

The roots that were growing shook my world,

turned it completely on its head.

And for the first time in my life,

I had faith in what my spirit said,

With this faith I found the courage,

to finally take a step.

And when I did I found my life,

My purpose and all of its depth.
