Am I Slipping? I Don’t Know. . .

Am I slipping? I don’t know. . .

The world turns, and I can’t catch up to you.

Am I falling, sinking through the waters.

“Don’t worry about all the other fish in the seas, it’s the sharks that will finish you off.”

Well, I’m not a shark, and I don’t now them.

But have they tightened their grip in my life?

Do the now control me?

Do I fear for something only in my mind. . .

Am I slipping? I don’t know. . .

I’m trying to run at the pace of the world, and maybe that’s why I’m falling behind.

I’m trying to fill shoes that don’t even belong to me, I don’t own them, so why am I walking to the pace of someone before me.

The bells sound, and I’m not in the band, but why am I crying out in a loud voice.

I’m being smothered by the blanket-like fog that surround me.

Surrounds my life.

Am I slipping? I don’t know. . .

but I won’t stand for in any longer!

It’s done.

It’s gone.

Behind me are the chains that held me.

Beneath me are the lies that haunted me.

Forgotten are the expectations that suffocated my creativity.

It’s gone.

It’s done.

But I’m not.

My imagination runs free, over the hills and planes of the world.

Lighting up the darkest corners of the oceans.

It soars far over the wings of bird and man alike.

This is me.

Youthful as the day I was born.

Joyful as my first laugh.

And carefree as the wind.



Please take some time to watch this video – Hillsong UNITED Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) Lyric Video – this song keeps me going at times, and I want you to hear it.

Please share your thoughts with me in the comments. I would love to hear from you.

  1. Often, I find myself slipping. I find the ground beneath my feet giving way, until I remember that my strength is in trusting and believing there is light beyond the horizon. Your post is as true as it it is relatable. Good job.
