I am standing where
I can see no way
When what I’m living
And what I want
When there are more questions
There is You.
When mists block my vision
and rocks cause my feet to stumble
You guide me on right paths
Your Word lights my way
You will not let me fall
You will not lead me astray
So I trust
And I follow
Giving up my dreams
Knowing Your dreams for me are bigger
Hoping only in You and Your plan
Giving up my rights
Knowing that in complete surrender
comes total freedom.
I wrote this poem two years ago. I don’t remember the exact situation but I do remember it being a confusing time. Although my situation is very different now, when I came across this poem again tonight a lot of the sentiments really resonated with me. There is so much that is unknown, unseen, in our lives and we need to trust in something bigger than ourselves. A big part of that is letting go – of our insecurities, but also of our pride and the idea that we can muddle through on our own.
Recently this song by Josh Garrels has become my theme tune. A lot of stuff has happened in the last year that I don’t understand, yet, but God is always faithful – “keeps me ramblin’ on”
