Thanksgiving

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory.
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.
And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all.
Yeah, He loves us,
Oh! How He loves us,
Oh! How He loves us,
Oh! How He loves us.
We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes.
If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking.
And Heaven meets earth like an unforseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don't have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about the way....

You know how sometimes things just keep popping up over and over again until you have no choice but to throw your hands up and say "ok God, I get it!"? Well this song has been one of those things. Last week when my roommate mentioned it, I didn't think much of it, but then it came up in conversation, was played at church, and I stumbled across a blog with the lyrics as the last post. A lot just happened in a short amount of time and I'm now back at school with all of these questions floating around in my head and no one has answers. And to be perfectly honest, I feel very insecure. But God has just used these lyrics to remind me that no matter what, He is jealous for me and my attention. So in return, I've decided to work on my patience. To turn my thoughts to the Lord and to trust Him with every aspect of my life. No matter how badly I want things to work out in a way that I think is best or that would please me, I'm going to try to sit back and watch it unfold and see what He thinks is best.
In the words of Tara Leigh Cobble, "its less about getting the thing than having a relationship with Him where I can trust Him enough to say, 'God, I think this is a good idea. If You do too, then will You make it happen?'"
