Undone


"I heard an unknown voice say, "Now I will take the load from your shoulders; I will free your hands from their heavy tasks. You cried to me in trouble, and I saved you; I answered out of the thundercloud and tested your faith when there was no water..."~Psalm 81:6-7

"What joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord, who have set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs. The autumn rains will clothe it with blessings. They will continue to grow stronger, and each of them will appear before God in Zion."~ Psalm 84:5-7

It's been a bit, I guess...and change happens quickly. As I've been sorting through the recent trip to Mexico, which resulted in some difficult decisions, my heart break has come not from this sense of being separated from a man. In all honesty, I have found myself desperate for the presence of the Lord. For that reason, I am grateful that He cares enough to pursue me. I could write a long laundry list of things I've learned in this experience. And they are all positive and necessary lessons, but perhaps the greatest, is how much we need the Lord.

Take this song as my prayer.
(by Steve and Vikki Cook)

Come weary saints, though tired and weak
Hide away in the love of Jesus
Your strength will return by His quiet streams
Hide away in the love of Jesus

Come wand’ring souls, and find your home
Hide away in the love of Jesus
He offers the rest that you yearn to know
Hide away in the love of Jesus

Hear Him calling your name
See the depths of His love
in the wounds of His grace
Hide away

Come guilty ones, weighed down with sin
Hide away in the love of Jesus
The freedom you long for is found in Him
Hide away in the love of Jesus

Hear Him calling your name
See the depths of His love
in the wounds of His grace
Hide away

Come, hopeless hearts, do not despair
Hide away in the love of Jesus
For ten thousand joys await you there
Hide away in the love of Jesus.
----

My desire is to hide in Him for a while...and strength will rise as we wait upon Him.
