thank you for your presence with me,
your mercy in this transition,
as I dangle not all that gracefully
from this point to the next,
thank you for holding onto me,
carrying me through each day.
Help me to trust you more,
understanding my heart,
the mixture of anxiety and hope,
dread and anticipation,
fear and excitement,
let me surrender it all to you,
leaning in to trust in you,
good Shepherd, loving Father,
setting my heart to believe, trust, and hope,
that you take me from glory to glory,
and through the valleys in between.
I thank you and bless you Lord.
