"If and when I can rid myself of this clouded mind, I'll watch myself settle down into a place where peace can search me out and find that I'm so ready to be found."
I'm not going to Spain. It took me a long, long time to get to this point, where I could finally step back and realize that I'm not the one who's losing something special. A long time. But I'm here now, and I feel better about this situation and life in general than I have since....I don't really know when. Probably since I was back in Spain. It's this feeling of being lighter, of being back on track; of finally having given in and returned to doing what God wants me to do. How could I forget how much better life is when I let him be in control? I should've remembered that he always, always keeps his promises.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matt. 11:28
And I'm loving that Relient K song right now:
"When I go down, I'll lift my eyes to you. I won't look very far, 'cause you'll be there with open arms to lift me up again."
Thank you so, so much to all those who stuck with me and prayed for me and kept speaking truth into my life. It means more to me than I could ever tell you in words.
I'll be in the Tri-Cities this next week. Come play!
