Who questions that I cannot start again,
To turn my years of losses into future gain?
I had forgotten who I am some time ago
Then God given experience whipped my ego
I have lost count of what number, new beginning this is
This place seems so familiar, as it is!
So what makes this time any different from the rest?
This time, I will be the one writing this test
God gave me permission to test his promises you see
That’s why today is a new beginning for me
I am on this mission to prove the enemy wrong
If I stay steadfast on God’s path, will I be unshakably strong?
It’s a hypothesis tested many times before, I know!
But not by me; I have tried to control this show
It’s a new beginning for me you see
I am surrendering all of who I am to be set free
Like a caterpillar who has spent most of its life in a cocoon
Faith filled and patient, I await the results of this test soon
I have defined my objective and written my protocol
Prepared a timeline; now to conduct the experiment, that’s all
I refuse to run the risk of error; recording everything I see
Questioning all that I already know, depending on faith to set me free
My mental models are updated with enough light to reveal any developing wrath
But Please Lord, Stand with me if I enter an unknown warpath
Be the one that I know will never let me go
The One who will hold me close and say, “wake up my love, it’s all a part of My show”
This test I will pass just to prove the enemy wrong
A new beginning sings to my heart, a mighty new song
