Do you ever feel like life is happening at a whirlwind pace and yet the days seem very long? Do you ever think that you're failing miserably at the tasks before you while simultaneously listening to others affirm you in your efforts? Do you ever want to shrink under the weight of all the responsibility you own while knowing that you really need to climb higher and push harder?
Opposites collide in the confusion of emotions and the pressures of life and the reality of decisions. It's easy to get frustrated, discouraged, and even resentful. What's not so easy is choosing contentment. And that's right where I am now.
I'm down so deep, and yet so high,
I'm standing still, while passing by.
I'm going over, going through,
My world is black, no path in view.
Dear God help, reach out your hand.
I know it's strange, but understand.
You've given all and provided much.
And yet somehow I've lost your touch.
I am lost, but hopeful, too,
Please give Your love to show me through.
