one day soon, these fears will be put to rest
extinguished like a fire
put out like time-out
killed like a pesky fly.
I only pray it happens before he comes--
before I know he is coming
so that in You this heart may be blessed.
the mind knows it is irrational to question
stupid to doubt
not of You to buy the lie,
because Your love is always enough
it is a process, though
and for that there is grace
but let the process be progressive rather than
clearing rather than
and securing rather than
A heart is fragile and unable to be controlled
but You are greater
than our hearts
past bruises and scrapes.
In You alone, I find rest
In You alone there is peace
"When the battle rages
for all that I am
You hold my future
in the palm of Your hand."
I am choosing to surrender that which gives me life,
for it is only given when it is lost
and since You have already paid the cost
I am trusting your plan over
"Send me your light and your faithful care,
let them lead me;
let them bring me to your holy mountain,
to the place where you dwell.
4 Then I will go to the altar of God,
to God, my joy and my delight.
I will praise you with the lyre,
O God, my God.
5 Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God" --Psalm 43:3-5
