Big Girl Panties
Time to grow up
Put my big girl panties on.
No more to go running about
Demanding my way and lashing out.
No more hiding behind others
Hoping He’ll choose another.
Time to get my big girl panties on.
One leg at a time
Out of the mire I must climb
Not Like a toddler “I do it myself”
But like a big girl asking for help.
Stop playing a game
Hard stuff ahead, nothing the same.
Be willing to get messy
Go out on a limb and get sweaty.
Serving not my own needs,
Not worrying if I have the strength or will fatigue,
But putting my big girl panties on.
Fear and shame a thing of the past,
Not letting my pride hold me back.
Missing the blessing every time I refuse
Time to be stepping into new shoes.
When things get ugly, stop making childish faces.
Time to be the one who embraces
Putting my big girl panties on.
