No to Complacency and Yes to Forward Motion!


I am sitting here at, oh, 2:31 in the morning after visiting with a friend who has been away all summer on a mission trip up north. But God has been doing much lately as I have let go of a friend, discovered an organization I was once a part of is sort-of falling apart, and I am being offered so many opportunities. Let’s just say that I am so excited about the future and what God has in store for me. I live for Him, breath because of Him, and desire only to be the man he wants me to be. So let us just say I am ROCKIN! Woo-hoo! People question why I am always cheerful and never somber, well, it’s because I can never stay down for what all God has to offer me.

This song is very good and has brought a sense of peace to me:

Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence
Would take a child from his mother
While she prays, is appalling
Who told us we’d be rescued
What has changed and
Why should we be saved from nightmares
Were asking why this happens to us
Who have died to live, it’s unfair
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held
This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it and
Let the hatred numb our sorrows
The wise hand opens slowly
To lilies of the valley and tomorrow
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held
If hope if born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait, for one hour
Watching for our savior
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We’d be held

Amazing, eh? To be held by God. The strength and comfort he gives to us is more than anything we can recieve here on earth. It was creepy though as I drove back from Dalonegha and hearing some guy request the song and actually singing it on 104.7 The Fish. He tried singing it and sounded really….yeah. A wannaBeBo (kudos to Luke for that one!)

Anyways, all the youngsters are back in school and I slept through my sibling leaving and the bus going by. Hurrah to no more yellow twinkies!
