Time to stop running, take in what’s around you,
Breathe in my Spirit, fill your lungs with my breath,
Stop; close your eyes, feel my warmth in the sunlight,
Stop; clear your mind; stop, my child, stop.
Need to keep running Lord,
Too scared to stop.
Too scared to see You,
Too scared of Your call.
Too scared of what You want,
Too scared to listen;
Too scared of the hardship
Your way may mean.
Stop running scared – I have a better race for you;
Time to have courage – it is there within;
Time to be strong, stand up and be counted;
Too long have you run away; stop now, turn back.
I know it is hard my child – draw your strength from me,
Have faith in my promises, and yield to my plans.
Trust in my wisdom; trust – do not worry,
Through you – my miracle – I can make more.
Do not feel guilty, for my blood has freed you,
Cast off your chains and dismiss your doubts,
Cast off your fears and let go of regret;
Draw strength from old sadness; Grace lights a new path.
Learn from your failures – it’s never too late;
Hear me through others – I’ll bless you through friends;
Tune into My voice, it is always there guiding;
Stop; look and listen – give me all of your life.
