Hope


I love Rascal Flatts' song "Feels Like Today." Every time it comes on the radio, I want to scream it in an empty room... in a happy sort of way. heh.

I woke up this morning
With this feeling inside me that I can't explain
Like a weight that I've carried
Been carried away, away
But I know something is coming
I don't know what it is
But I know it's amazing, you save me
My time is coming
And I'll find my way out of this longest drought


Sometimes, it's hard to hold on to the "knowing" that something is coming when everything in your logic-speaks-louder f a c e screams the opposite is true.

You treat life like a picture
But its not a moment frozen in time
It's not gonna wait
Til you make up your mind, at all

So while this storm is breaking
While there's light at the end of the tunnel
Keep running towards it
Releasing the pressure, that's my heartache
Soon this dam will break

Once, I stood with some friends in a funeral parlor and prayed that the Lord would work a miracle and bring a close friend back to life. I understand why the disciples just went home when Jesus died. Game Over, right? Simple. In a casket. In your face. See: This Changes Everything Sometimes, it's easier to go home than risk looking like a psycho when God doesn't show up as you expect.

One thing is true--the Lord has plans that are strategic (even when they don't make sense to me) <---- That wasn't easy to type! Nothing that He does is anything less than utterly amazing and just as it should be. Every morning is a new opportunity to live in the Hope we have because of His sacrifice. It's freedom today and freedom forever. hrrrmmm...and that's the gospel according to Rascal Flatts? ;)

He Lives!

gloom. sunshine. a new day.
