A huge knot engulfed my throat as I fought back tears when a dear friend of mine came to me with her marital struggle. As I listened to each “instance” or each “argument”, goosebumps ran down my arms… then my back… then I couldn’t feel my body as the flashbacks of my own marital struggle came back from just years ago.
“It’s not supposed to be like this,” she muttered out between sobs and heavy breathing.
You’re right. It’s not.
There is Hope. There is Healing. I am living proof.
As I picked my Music Monday title, I listened and meditated on the words. Often, we feel like we are just a tiny grain of sand, “one tear in the driving rain“, or so insignificant that God will never pull us out of the pit we’re in, whether we were thrown in or walked in willingly.
Tenth Avenue North reminds me of how we can all feel this way. We feel small. We feel unnoticeable. We feel like our problems are too small for His time or effort. We “over think” the situation and forget how big God actually is. No more asking why, no more feeling sorry for ourselves, but instead begging him to come to us. A close relationship with Jesus holding our heart, in his hand, is all that matters.
He wants to hear us come to him and rescue us from our trials and tribulations, to grow our heart, to bring us closer to him, to show the world his mighty power, and give no doubt to who brought you out of the pit of despair.
So, on this Music Monday I’m going to meditate on this song and share one of my favorite quotes when I struggle with the “Why Me?” attitude.
Album: Over And Underneath
How long must I pray
Must I pray to You?
How long must I wait
Must I wait for You?
How long till I see Your face
See You shining through I’m on my knees
Begging You to notice me
I’m on my knees Father, will you turn to me
One tear in the driving rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart
One life, that’s all I am
Right now I can barely stand If
You’re everything You say You are
Would You come close and hold my heart
I’ve been so afraid, afraid to close my eyes
So much can slip away before I say goodbye
But if there’s no other way I’m done asking why
I’m on my knees Begging You to turn to me
I’m on my knees Father, will you run to me
So many questions without answers
Your promises remain I can’t see but I’ll take my chances to hear You call my name
To hear You call my name
