it’s awfully hard to do
It goes against my will
to keep pushing through
to leave the pain and the unknown
to make it better, to fix it, I must.
It makes no matter, the love He has shown,
I still can’t bring myself to trust.
That’s what it all comes down to.
Do I trust Him to be who He promises to be?
Do I trust Him to do what He promises to do?
Do I trust Him to come through for me?
Be still, trust, wait
can I let go and fall?
Maybe it’s too late,
will he catch me or will I lose it all?
Trust, it’s a powerful thing to do
and I’m not sure I can,
but I’m not sure I can afford not to.
