I know that I’ve used this song before but I felt that it was fitting to use it with this image that is seen below. This song evokes something in me just like the image. It’s like a stirring within me that shows me how thirsty I am for the presence of God. I am a person who is emotionally self sufficient and some would say, that I am a coper.
I have never been needy and sometimes I have judged others who appear as though they are. Sometimes being this way makes me forget how much God wants to bless and look after me. As much as I have the ability for emotional sufficiency God still wants to nurture my soul with His tenderness and love. This walk is a journey. It is one step in front of the other. It is surrender and exchange. It is love.
Journey, worn, old, tired, afraid, stories, adventure
Take the leap, uncharted, new, stepping out,
Pain, turbulence, humility,
lost at sea.
Found again, return, not to the past, return, to the beginning.
not my own understanding
This is the long haul,
joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, self-control
the nourishment of them
shall sustain you
along the way
Yielded, pliable, surrendered
indifferent, sentimental wanting yesteryear.
but not for long.
The Captain is here.
Believe, courage, continue on
trust and obedience.
The journey continues
one foot on front of the next
to brighter days.
Days that can not be imagined
hiding in the wings of refuge
knowing safety within the fortress.
It is finished
