Run For Me

When it rains…
Are you going to be there next time
or are you just going to stand there to say it’s raining?

When it rains…
will you bring an umbrella
or just bring boots to drown my soul in splash overflow?

You tell me to cling to the cross,
I wish you could see how white my knuckles are
But it feels like they’re prying my fingers away
and the splinters burn…
The splinters burn!

But I cannot give up!
I cannot forfeit!
the Spirit inside cries, “RUN ON!”
I cannot turn back,
when I feel I can’t win.
Jesus, run in my place. My flesh is giving out.
Hold me… Please… run for me…

[Just a few thoughts than formed a song in my head tonight.]


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
