Lord, you invited me to …

Lord, you invited me to follow You

I rejected your invitation again and again

For fear of not measuring up

To Your standards

Too tough for me to meet.


Now I am here

Beginning the journey towards baptism

I have come upon a realization

An important realization

Although I might falter

You will always be there

 To prop me up 

To give me the strength

 And the wisdom to continue

Now I journey towards

Becoming a man of God.

Grant me the tenacity

Needed to complete

This journey 

In Jesus’ name, I pray
