A New Space

This little poem I wrote four years ago still has meaning for me. I have found that most of my anxieties come from resisting “what is” and insisting upon my version of what “should be.” More and more I’m learning that God’s future requires surrender and trust that good lies ahead–even if I cannot clearly see it in this moment.

A New Space

Let go of the past and your future begins.
Anxiety’s cure lies ahead not behind.
Time to clean house and make a new space.
Think twice and you won’t do it.

Anxiety’s cure lies ahead not behind.
Don’t let the past be your tether.
Think twice and you won’t do it.
Close your eyes, take a breath, jump!

Don’t let the past be your tether.
Better an uncertain future than gilded shackles.
Close your eyes, take a breath, jump!
You are more ready than you think.

Better an uncertain future than gilded shackles.
Time to clean house and make a new space.
You are more ready than you think.
Let go of the past and your future begins.
