"your good"

"your good" he says
When I am deep down in the trenches
Unsure of how I will find my way out
Struggling, fighting, blinded by the road ahead

"your good" he says
When I think I cannot take another step
Exhaustion setting in
Thoughts of failure overtaking my confidence

"your good" he says
When I feel defeated
My hope has dwindled
And I am struggling to see myself

No matter where I am
he says "your good"
And he is right
I am good

If I am deep in the trenches
Struggling to take another step
or fighting to keep hope alive
I am good

In that moment
Where ever I am
I am exactly where I need to be
I am good

I have worked hard to get to that point
Persevered and pushed myself forward
I have been on the constant look out for how to take the next step
And when I find it I forge right ahead and take it

I may not be where I want to be
I may wish to be further along on the journey
I may stumble and I may fall
But wherever I am, I am good

You ARE good, and you are in exactly the right place.

Trust that.

Your book is STILL blowing me away. Inquiring minds want to know - what hymn is on the other page?
