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.
