The Simple Life

Growing


I really want to hold your hand

I want to hide you in my arms

I want to protect you from the hardship

Yet I know I can’t.

=====

I want to shield you from the struggle

I want to close you in my heart

I want to closet you safely

Yet I know I can’t

=====

The struggle will build you

The process will change you

The tears will clarify you

You will grow

=====

The questions will add depth

The fear will be overcome

The drama will strengthen you

You will grow

=====

The conversations will push you

The honesty will blow things up

The depth will shock you

You will grow

=====

Do not fear the process

Do not give up on the way

Do not doubt the outcome

You will grow

=====

I can’t shield you

But I will walk wit you

I can’t hide you

But I will pray for you

=====

Even when I am far

Even when you don’t see me

Even when I am silent

Papa is there

=====

Even when it feels dark

Even when you feel alone

Even when nothing seems cool

Papa is there

=====

He is our HOPE

He is our STRENGTH

He is our ANCHOR

He is our ALL
