My partner

My partner is ahead of me, in front and not beside me.

I look up to my partner, and I see great things.

My partner leads me by the hand, and encourages me to look to
the hills from whence cometh my help.

My partner never reminds of past mistakes, but rather insists
that I learn from them, grow, and press ahead.

My partner never shuns or degrades me, but motivates and
inspires me to higher heights.

My partner stretches me farther than I want to go, and often
takes me out of my comfort zone.

My partner speaks to me, and inspires me to continue forward and
become all who God has predestined me to be.

When the world is silent, my partner speaks loud and clear, or even
whispers in my ear, “You can make it.”

My partner holds me at night, during those quiet times of unrest,
my partner rests my soul.

My partner embraces me, surrounds me and never lets me go.
My partner steers and directs me; it won’t let me go astray.

My partner is always right beside me, forever here to stay.
For my partner is my future, and my future is secure.

As bright as the morning star, causing me, each day, to endure.

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God
in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
