And here I sit, beneath your feet, humbled that you would grace me with your presence, time and again.
Humbled that your love would rock these faltering knees up to a standing position, and awaken my eyes to stare at my fears without the desire to flee.
But that’s what you do, isn’t it?
You take away fears and strongholds with an ease that only belongs to you, Sweet Jesus.
You overcame what seeks to overcome me. And by your grace, I can overcome.
I can stare down my fears and remain standing with them in sight.
Cause your voice calls out to me.
It welcomes me back into the arms of your truth and ever so gently, you whisper fear has no hold over me.
You sing over me with delight.
You revel in my scatterbrained presence and you tell me, oh you tell me, I’m enough.
You pick up the pieces of my mess and you love me in spite of it.
The stigmas the world has attached on me mean absolutely nothing.
The rejections men have spoken over my heart have no hold on me.
You overcame all of this, Jesus.
You overcame my heartache.
You overcame the gaping wound of my heart that cries out to be home for good.
You overcame the trivial mess that attempts to conquer my days.
You overcame the loneliness that threatens my content heart in the middle of the night, when all is quiet and truth is far.
You overcame my voice that feared speaking and you taught me how to speak.
You overcame. And because you overcame, I can overcome.
I used to convince myself that I had to wait. I had to remain paralyzed in one position before your voice called out of a burning bush where you needed to take me. I thought I needed to remain inactive for you to move within me, but sometimes I have to move in the midst of uncertainty to find what is certain.
And so with that being said, today, March 14th, 2013, my life could go one of two ways. All I ask, is that “you lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters, wherever you would call me, take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, that my faith would be made stronger in the presence of You, my Savior.”
The beautiful thing I can rely on is that you already know the outcome.
You planned it into being, when you formed my heart from your very hands.
Today is your day, Jesus. I will rejoice and be glad in it.
I will overcome, because you overcame.
I will follow, where you lead me.
