such a long, long way to go
where i’m going i don’t know
i’m just following the road
for a walk in the sun
lots of things hit me today.
see you laters.
i’m nervous and i’m excited
and anxious to see what You
have in store for me.
to learn why You put me
in this new place that You did.
a big chapter closed tonight
as i went around my room and
saw old pictures and trophies
and journals and junk.
a new one opens tomorrow though.
i have no idea what is going to happen
in the next year, but i know
You do, and i find peace and curiosity
family is only a Skpye away,
best friends will stay best friends,
and the love You have blessed on me
will not be wavered.
if the last 18 years were any
indication of how great You are
and how sweet a life of You is,
i can’t wait to taste the next ones.
You’ve blessed me beyond belief
with challenges and undeserved
grace and opportunity and love.
if i was walking onto campus tomorrow
alone i would be scared out of my mind.
but i have You. and i
trust the plans and faithfulness
You have for me.
i can’t even imagine the awesome
plans You have for me and my friends
who are also going away and my
little brother and my parents
and my other half.
i don’t even know where i would
start if i was doing this on my own,
but You already have it written.
great things are yet to come,
so i’ll just follow this road
for a walk in the sun.
