It’s been a long road for my family over the past few years. Finances, health, family events, you name it. There’s been a lot of prayer and a lot of sheer will power to keep things going at times, but I think things are finally at the end and a new chapter is coming.
My girls start kindergarten and we’ve been blessed with money to pay for their entire tuition for the year. I start a new job soon that is everything and more that it’s cracked up to be. I get to stay home while working. Minus a few teeth and the like, family is healthier. A new chapter is beginning.
During those really hard nights or mornings, there would be prayer, and sometimes some music to remind me of where I’m at and where I will be going one day. I know of a God that does not eliminate all pain, but transforms it. Eventually, or even suddenly (as it seems to have occurred with us) the clouds break.
Enjoy the lyrics and the music.
She feels lost in her own life
Treading water just to keep from slipping under
And she wonders if she’s where she’s supposed to be
Tired of trying to do it right
Her dreams are just to far away to see how steps she’s making
Might be taking her to who she’ll be
And suddenly it isn’t what it used to be
And after all this time it worked out just fine
And suddenly I am where I’m supposed to be
And after all the tears I was supposed to be here
She feels locked in her own life
Scared of what she might lose if she moves away from who she was
And she’s afraid of being free
There’s a way she knows is right
She can’t feel the things she knows
And so each step she’s taking is a step of faith toward who she’ll be…
And here where the night is dark
She feels the fear
And the light is farthest back
And through her tears
She can’t see the dawn is coming
Skies will clear
And the light will find her where she’s always been…
