Four years ago this became one of my favorite videos. I must have played this at least one hundred times. It spoke of exactly where I was at… needing forgiveness for what I have done, and needing to clean the slate of the mediocrity in my life.
Let mercy come and wash away what I’ve done
I’ll face myself
To cross out what I’ve become
And let go of what I’ve done
Put to rest
What you thought of me
While I clean this slate
With the hands of uncertainty
For what I’ve done
I start again
And whatever pain may come
Today this ends
Prophetic words? Maybe, but very much speaking of the space I was in and the leap that I was about to take. A leap of faith. I had no idea how this story would turn out.. in fact, I feared the worst would take place…
But that fear would not stop me. Slow me down… yes, stop me.. no.
I am so glad that I took that leap. I cannot imagine what life would have been like had I tried to keep it all together.
Life is like that. We face our fears.. we leap into the unknown. Or we allow our fear to stop us. The choice is ours. Our fate is in our hands.
