This Journey Is My Own

This Journey Is My Own
By Sara Groves

When I stand before the Lord,
I’ll be standing alone.
This journey is my own.
Still I want man’s advice,
And I need man’s approval,
But this journey is my own.

(CHORUS)
Why would I want to live for man
And pay the highest price?
What would it mean to gain the world,
Only to lose my life?

So much of what I do
Is to make a good impression.
This journey is my own.
So much of what I say
Is to make myself look better.
This journey is my own.

(CHORUS)

I have never felt relief
Like I feel it right now.
This journey is my own.
‘Cause trying to please the world
It was breaking me down,
It was breaking me down.

Now I live and I breathe
For an audience of one,
Now I live and I breathe
For an audience of one.
Now I live and I breathe
For an audience of one,
‘Cause I know
This journey is my own.

(CHORUS)

You can live for someone else,
And it will only bring you pain.
I can’t even judge myself.
Only the Lord can say, “Well done.”

    I found you via Twitter (we have some mutual Twitter friends) and I saw your blog title. I just had to come over to see if you were referencing a Sara Groves song. YES! I love her music so much!

      Indeed, I’ve named my blog after her song. It speaks to me so much. My favorite Sara Groves album of all-time is still “Conversations.”
