…so, i don’t have it all figured out –

 what i believe. 

but

there are a few things i can grab onto and i am. i’m grabbing, holding, clinging and guarding it against my chest like it’s my last dime…or maybe…the last piece of chocolate. 

here’s some of what i know: there is something bigger than me, stronger than me, better than me and, i believe, it longs to shelter me and protect me the way i want to protect my children, only even more and stronger and better than i’ll ever be able to do for them. and somehow…it will help smooth out the messes in my life and set me on a path of love and joy and healthy freedom.

One song

Friday, August 29th, 2008

It’s been a wierd year for me and my faith – well, couple of years actually. A bit of walking away, running away, staying away, falling down and crawling back to something, Someone who knows my name and is big enough to handle me, in my selective memory, trying to recall His. And while music is so much a part of me, there were months when I just couldn’t sing the songs I used to sing to celebrate that faith. But there was one song – one song that somehow, even at my worst, I could sing to myself. My friend Mindy had shared it with me and it continues to do something to me. . .  deep inside of me. When nothing else in life made sense and I didn’t care to hear what did or didn’t make sense to anyone else, somewhere deep inside my heart could still believe these words.  SO, turn on your speakers, click here, listen. I think you’ll be glad you did. —> I Belong by Kathryn Scott
