New Roads

I've been walking my own way way to long 
It seems that this comfort is where i belong
I dare not try to go a new way
But God is calling to step out in faith

I have to admit that I'm scared just a bit 
I've grown so accustomed to this life I live
He calls me to new roads that will take me far
Away from this life that I've traveled so far

Oh, God of wonder how can this be
That you would have plans for little old me
I'm noone special.  I have no degrees
Yet out of the darkness you gave called me

You've called me to walk by your side every day
To not be afraid of what might come my way
You've called me to step out to.places unknown 
To walk by your side as you make me your own

Oh God of wonder,  how can I be sure
That this is your voice.   That this is your word?
I've followed you more than half of my life 
And I've always tried to heed your advise 

But where you are calling me seems quite a stretch 
I think to myself that I'm not ready yet
Then I hear your voice and I know that it's you
Saying this is the plan that has waited for you

Oh God of wonder,  I will take heed
I will now walk wherever you lead 
It's only by faith I can do as I'm told
Only by faith can I walk this new road
