    As I sit and cry
    I wonder why
    I can help everyone else
    But my own life I cannot define
    Could it be denial has taken over me
    Or could it be I have decided to live a lie
    All under the safe canopy of being naïve
    Or maybe I have allowed fear to take up residence in my life
    As my past begins to creep on me
    My future grow more and more dim
    Leaving no room for tomorrows visions
    Leaving no room for tomorrows dreams
    I wonder daily how it is I will move forward
    I wonder how I did it in the past
    I wonder how I come so far as the struggle has been long
    For the joys of this day are not seen
    Because the past has blocked my vision completely
    I know I cannot do it in my own strength
    As I begin to pray
    I recognize I haven’t done anything God’s way
    For His ways are not my own
    And to this world I must not conform
    It is all come to me now
    The answer is clear
    I have moved further away from God’s face
    As daily I feel I have fallen from his grace
    And In my heart I have allowed counterfeit to take the Lords space
    My focus needs to change
    I must look to my creator
    For new determination and new strength
    I must move forward
    I must not be moved
    I pulled up the Lords resume and realized
    He has always seen me thru
    And moving on is all I know how to do
    This struggle is nothing new
    Lord you are there
    I can feel you near
    There is no need to live in constant fear
    I know everything will be okay
    And I can love without expectation
    The more I look to you
    The more I am able to let go
    I can forgive
    I don’t have to hold on the past or what has happened thru the years
    I claim my healing
    I hold onto the prize
    I will look at myself with joy
    As there will be fewer tears in my eyes
    Freedom is here
    I can smell it in the air
    Father your presence is so strong
    I know you will always be here
    I can live without worry
    I can live with out reserve
    I won’t hold back
    For you have told me that I am the head and not the tail
    I will live as I have been raised
    My life will be an example to those around me
    My testimony will be of a broken woman made whole by touch and mercy
    Our relationship will never again be severed
    One day they will say she was a woman who really loved her father
    It’s been a long time but I knew this transformation would come
    People will look at me and see a loving face
    As daily I look to you for change
    My prayer today is that you would make me unrecognizable to my own ways
    Lord I pray that you would not shorten my life or my days
    May my time on earth be spent loving others
    The way you have loved me
    And with my life may you be pleased
