As the sun warms my weak flesh,
My bones ache but are inspired to keep going.
In the midst of putting aside what is comfortable
To live out my dreams,
I’m shocked but thankful in the change of course.
Thank you God that I’m able to see the waiting I imposed upon myself
Had purpose at one time but is now unnecessary.
It is time to go,
Into the unknown with no doubt that I’m not alone.
I can’t escape you, God, no matter where I go or what I do.
I thank you, God, that I now truly would never want to.
“O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up;
You understand my thought from afar.
3 You scrutinize my path and my lying down,
And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
4 Even before there is a word on my tongue,
Behold, O Lord, You know it all.
5 You have enclosed me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is too high, I cannot attain to it.
7 Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the dawn,
If I dwell in the remotest part of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand will lead me,
And Your right hand will lay hold of me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me,
And the light around me will be night,”
12 Even the darkness is not dark to You,
And the night is as bright as the day.
Darkness and light are alike to You.” Psalm 139:1-12
