Then, a pattern in me takes shape
Encouragement turns into inspiration and then into a gasping desperation
Your fire burns within me, a deeper prayer
To move out of this oxygen-starved place.
To change altitude.
To leave this godless, grasping society.
I long for freedom of movement
My feet are ready to go!
With You at my back.
I am ready to move out.
Courage under fire!
This pattern of prayer comes from You.
These days are marked on the calendar of strategic planning.
Holy Spirit, You equip me with a vision of what next
Training me within
In my heart, I can see through Your eyes.
I walk before You, dear wind
As You tilt me onto new paths
And up this high mountain.
Of the presence of the Lord.
I am there as You share wisdom beyond my own
I am there in the understanding of plans You provide.
Your counsel has entered and registered within me and
You have given me the blueprint of an exit strategy.
I get prepared to leave
I await Your hand
It will cost me all I have
I pour out my all and
Wait in the fear of the Lord.
The waiting teaches me everything
As I cross unveiled thresholds of hope
You teach me to see with Your vision
You teach me to speak with Your perspective,
Your authority and Your peace.
My feet are anointed to be free.
My feet have followed You underground
I am prepared to climb out and climb higher.
I am ready to leave.
Whisper, please, dear wind
Into my heart any correction or redirection
That my Heavenly Father speaks to You.
We will talk much as I go.
These are the words I remember speaking to You
In my heart before I held my breath….
