Away

You know? These past few weeks have been hard. This quarter has been so overwhelming and I came to the realization about a week ago that I have lost my character in the shuffle of this year’s requirements. Long days, short nights and stress after stress has finally found victim in my personality. But in all the time that I have been kicking and complaining this quarter about my lack of rest, I have found failure after failure.
I opened my eyes tonight to see this…
an open hand…
I read these lyrics a few days ago from a friend’s site
” Come with me my love
step out on the wave
step out into faith
Fix your eyes on me
look past the stormy sea
look past your stumbling feet
and i know you’re afraid
but i’ll take your hand
hold you close
pull you in
and though you can’t stand
I still can
I still Am”
And as easily as this song creates flight in lyrical form within my head (even without ever hearing the song), I come to the realization that maybe, just maybe away…
is so much closer than I thought…

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.
