Hello, My Name Is

Hello, My Name Is

Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Hello, my name is Defeat.

I’m sure you can still recognize me.

Hello, my name is Regret.

Seeking moments left and right; up and down; in anyplace, in anyone but you. Over and over again.

Hello, my name is Sin.

Feeling numb and comfortable, judging you while leaning on me, myself, and I. 

Staring to my left, with sin staring back at me again.

Hello, my name is Fear.

Standing face to face with another stalemate; draw; tie with sin. Questioning you; questioning me, myself, and I. 

Hello, my name is Doubt.

I’m sure you can recite them all by now.

Naming all my demons when I stopped believing, ready to close the door for good before I realized what was missing in my life was you.

But today — in the shadows of my shame and through the darkness of my doubt, I’ve come to realize how my God is The One I live for now.

Today, my name is Triumph.

My name is Happiness.

My name is Virtue.

My name is Belief.

My name is Courage.

Today, I conquer Defeat; Regret; Sin; Fear; Doubt with all that I am and all I can be, with my Father by my side.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following; I am a Christian. I believe in fate. I believe in something bigger, something greater than any words or phrase could ever put into a comprehensible explanation on paper.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following; I am a Christian. I believe there is something bigger, something greater for me in this world; I believe there is something bigger, something greater for you in this world.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following; I am a Christian. I believe in His calling for me, even if I’m still trying to find and understand what exactly His calling for me is.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following; I am a Christian. I bleed the same as you; I bleed the same as Him.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following; my faith remains a journey in progress, and while there are still things I do not understand, cannot see, cannot feel, and have not physically touched; I still believe in this continued journey through faith. Because I believe it’s real.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following; I will believe in His calling — wherever it may be; wherever it may lead.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following, I will walk hand in hand with His plan — through every step forward and every set backward.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following, I will be gracefully broken — to be His someone called upon our world; to fulfill His calling for me; to surrender all I am for all this world could be.

Today, tomorrow, and all of the days following…

I am second.
