A Step of Faith

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: June 13, 2010

A college graduate's aspiration…

A step a faith into an unknown future
I now will take with prayer that God will lead.
My yesterdays morph into new tomorrows
where open doors invite me to succeed.
By stepping out I know I'll make a difference
within a world of endless hurt and need.

A step of faith seems scary and uncertain.
It's hard to trust in what I cannot see.
But all the same I long for things I've dreamed of
a world at peace the way that it should be.
By stepping out with confidence and courage
dreams can come true if I will just believe.

A step of faith requires risk and reason
to take a chance that's based on what I know
What I have learned is prologue to my future.
Past opportunities have helped me grow.
By stepping out I'll dance with countless choices
aware of God from whom all blessings flow.

* the above lyrics can be sung to the tune FINLANDIA
