This is not goodbye.

To my phenomenal world-changing, traffic-stopping !Audacious family:

This is Not Goodbye – Sidewalk Prophets

I can see it in your eyes that you are restless
The time has come for you to leave
It’s so hard to let you go but in this life I know
You have to be who you were made to be

As you step out on the road I’ll say a prayer
So that in my heart you always will be there

[Chorus:]
This is not goodbye
I know we’ll meet again
So let your life begin
‘Cause this is not goodbye
It’s just “I love you” to take with you
Until you’re home again

The stirring in your soul has left you wondering
Should you stay or turn around
Well, just remember that your dreams they are a promise
That you were made to change the world
So don’t let fear stop you now ‘cause

[Chorus]

I know the brightest star above
Was created by the One who loved
More than we’ll ever know
To guide you when you’re lost

What started as a still, small voice
Is raging now and your only choice
Is to follow who you are
So follow who you are ‘cause

This is not goodbye
I know we’ll meet again
Oh

[Chorus]

It is time.

It is time to say ‘see you soon’.

This is not goodbye.

I doubt I can hold back the tears. But it’s proof that I have found and have been given something worth treasuring and fighting for.

Thank you for this chapter in my journey.

Thank you for loving me.

You all make it difficult to leave.

But I leave forever changed – by finding the Father’s heart for me, by finding family, by finding home.

And now, I embark on the next leg towards even greater things.

You’ll be in my prayers and my thoughts.

I’ll be standing with you from wherever I am.

With all the love I can muster up,

Van
