I stand only knee deep, on the edge of more, on the brink of bold.
The horizon wide, the water deep, the waves uncertain.
I can see You just beyond the shore.
My heart races, my breathing quickens, my legs feel weak.
You call out, “Come”.
With my eyes fixed on You, I boldly go.
The waves begin to crash over me and I feel that I am sinking.
Yet, in an instant You have me.
I am Yours and in You, I am bold.
I am exactly where I need be,
I am beautifully in, over my head.
““Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.”
Matthew 14:28-31 NIV
I am in a place where mere words can not fully express all of what I am inwardly experiencing through our adoption process. In the uncertain waiting, song has become my Thread of Hope. Stirring my stagnant heart and giving a voice to my wordless, restless groans. So, as we continue to wait for our fifth child, our sweet girl, I will lift up hands and heart and I Will Sing!
These two songs inspired this post,
Both songs have beautiful imagery. Each one, a powerful reminder that God is in my uncertain waiting. He goes before me and He will never leave me. He calms and quiets my restless, groaning heart. He strengthens me and He will sustain me, no matter what the future holds.
Today, my hope and prayer is that this post and these songs will uplift, inspire and encourage you as well.
In Him, we are beautifully bold!
