Today I turn 33.

I am no longer the man I used to be.

I have preached the truth in love

and I have suffered for my flock.

I have known joy and I have known sorrow.

The Spirit guides me into His hands.

The one who feeds the sparrows

holds my tomorrow.

I am no longer a boy.

I am still becoming a man.

I’ve stepped onto the water

and I know I can’t turn back.

I’ve suffered loss

hoping that Christ shall be my gain.

Hoping that the gifts he placed within me

will be set aflame.

So that I may never be the same.





Like a shepherd without his sheep

I am naked but I am not afraid.

Have I done right?

Have I done wrong?

Have I followed Jesus?

Or am I dancing to my own song?

Wisdom is vindicated by her children

and the stream of time shall reveal the diamonds beneath the dust.

He knows the way that I take.

When he has tried me

I shall come out as gold.

And I shall yet proclaim glories untold.

I shall see the goodness of the Lord

In the land of the living.

I have the faith to say to the mountain move

and for it to be cast into the sea.
