I Will Lift My Eyes...

God, my God, I cry out
Your beloved needs You now
God, be near calm my fear and take my doubt
Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in

I will lift my eyes to the Maker
of the mountains I can't climb
I will lift my eyes to the Calmer
of the oceans raging wild
I will lift my eyes to the Healer
of the hurt I hold inside
I will lift my eyes, lift my eyes to You

God, my God, let mercy sing
her melody over me
and God, right here all I bring
is all of me
Your kindness is what pulls me up
Your love is all that draws me in

'Cause You are and You were and You will be forever
the Lover I need to save me
'Cause You fashioned the earth and You hold it together, God
so hold me now

This song is a mirror image of my heart right now. As much as I want this hurt and pain to stop rearing it's head I know I am being refined. It feels awesome to cling to Christ in a way that I never have before. I am being shown that Christ is my maker, calmer, healer and my portion. I feel like a little girl in my mother's arms, letting her hold and protect me. I am so thankful for my parents consistent example of Christi's love. Of course waiting is the hardest part but good things are worth the wait. And I want to be faithful and obedient.

There's magic in what we believe. Our beliefs tell our future better than any crystal ball or psychic can. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he, one holy book says. Be mindful of your thoughts and beliefs. What you think and believe today, whether it's I can't or I can, is what you will manifest tomorrow.
