Wow, it's been so long since I wrote here. Sometimes life just takes you down to a place where any meaningful writing needs to be kept private. I know the people who are are brave enough to share their hearts during those times are often the best writers, but I am not there yet. I have been thinking and feeling and praying some really raw and ugly things about my circumstances and wrestling with principalities and powers. I can tell you God is always victorious, but I am battle weary to a point I may have never been before. This morning as I watched the rain falling I prayed the words of this beautiful song by "Mercy Me." Jesus, bring the rain! Be glorified through all this and make me more like You.

Brings to mind the words of a song I wrote in college (imagine Enya-like music in the background):

There is no place upon this earth...
There is no place to rest.
I looked from shore to distant shore...
I looked but could not find
A place to lay my head.

I looked unto the mountaintops;
Where does my help come from?
I finally found my place of rest;
My help comes from the Lord.

Take me back to the place
Where we first fell in love
When I first saw Your face.
Take me to a place of rest.
Let me sit at Your feet;
Let me lean on Your breast.
I shall find my Solace there;
Let me find my Solace there.
