“Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.”
– Psalms 62:8 NKJV
I open my eyes and it is you that I look to first.
There’s a roaring lion waiting by my bed, my mind is filled with wild thoughts from the night but You gently nudge me to look to You, reminding me that I don’t have to do today alone. These thoughts and feelings are just temporary until I turn to You. I am your bride and You are the Groom, together we do this thing called life, You pursue me and I pursue You.
Sometimes we dance back and forth, I push and You gently pull. It all comes down to trust.
Trusting in something I cannot see but I know in my heart is there because I can feel and experience You.
Don’t let go, ever.
You go ahead before me and prepare a safe and clear path, but I still have choices where I want to go. You carefully guide me through treacherous waters and I always end up in Your embrace no matter what path I take. The dance continues, it’s safe, but my worldly thoughts creep in and suddenly I feel scared and take it back. Then You gently come again and pull me even closer with Your love and kindness that always brings me to repentance and surrender.
I fall into Your arms like a little child and it’s under Your wings I find my refuge. I pray for Your will and not mine, You teach me to trust again and to keep looking to You first for everything. When I do, my battle wounds and past hurts start to heal.
You tell me, “it’s all part of the process my child. Just trust me and let’s move together. “
