What are you waiting for???



If someone had asked me where I thought I’d be now a few years back, I definitely wouldn’t say here. About five or ten years ago, I had my whole life planned out. By this time, I would be a doctor, psychiatrist to be specific, married to a wonderful man, with a set of adorable twins… I don’t really have any of those as we speak right now. 
 
I guess you can call it growing up, because my experiences throughout the whole of last week have showed me that nothing in life is really black and white, there will always be gray areas, and there will always be exceptions to the rule. I’ve made so many drastic changes since then, that everyone I know keeps asking what happened while   was away…

If I was to summarize the answer, I would say, I let go. We make plans, all of us, but at the end of the day, nothing really is within our control. The job you thought you would have at this age is probably not the one you have now, and the partner you have is probably not the one you thought you would have, the friends you thought would be your besties forever have lost touch with you and the life you are living is probably so far from what you imagined it would be. 

So I have come to realize that the only person you can rely on apart from yourself in this world, the only person you should rely on in fact is God. Because after all is said and done, He is the one that was, and is and is.



Walk on the water-Britt Nicole

 You look around, staring back at you 
 Another wave of doubt, will it pull you under?
 You wonder What if I'm overtaken? 
What if I never make it?  
What if no one's there?
 Will You hear my prayer?
 
When you take that first step into the unknown  
You know that He won't let you go
 
So what are you waiting for? 
What do you have to lose? 
Your insecurities, they try to alter you  
But you know you're made for more, 
so don't be afraid to move  
Your faith is all it takes, and you can walk on the water, too
 
So get out, and let your fear fall to the ground  
No time to waste, don't wait, 
and don't you turn around and miss out  
Everything you were made for, 
 know you're not sure 

 So you play it safe, you try to run away
If you take that first step into the unknown He won't let you go

So what are you waiting for? 
What do you have to lose?  
Your insecurities, they try to alter you 
But you know you're made for more, 
so don't be afraid to move 
 Your faith is all it takes, and you can walk on the water, too
 
Step out, even when it's storming  
Step out, even when you're broken  
Step out, even when your heart is telling you Telling you to give up
Step out, when your hope is stolen  
Step out, you can't see where you're going  
You don't have to be afraid  

So what are you waiting, what are you waiting for?
So what are you waiting for? 

What do you have to lose?  
Your insecurities try to alter you  
You know you're made for more, so don't be afraid to move  
Your faith is all it takes, and you can walk on the water Walk on the water, too
