I recall the words my mother said when I was very small, And so, afraid to reach out for fear that I might fall:
“You must have faith to walk, my child, before you can go far, But with that faith you’ll find the way to reach your brightest star.”
Then believing is the key for what you want to be, Seeing not with eyes alone, but seeing inwardly.
For what if the little bird that’s hatching feared to come out and sing? He’d never know the beautiful Truth that he was born to take wing.
Reach out, believe, be not afraid, but take a giant stride. How joyous is the knowledge that God is by Your side!
