Lent

>…surrender…

>Lent, Day 26

Sometimes, God moves and I can find the words to explain what happened.  Other times, I am left so moved and changed by the experience that words almost seem to diminish the exchange, somehow tarnishing it thru mere mortal expressions…and that was my day today.

I think that anyone who has been reading my recent posts can tell that I have been struggling internally…and as I took my walk today, I somehow found that I had the courage to finally let go. 

Not an easy feat…but as the cool breeze wiped the tears from my cheeks, I could almost sense His tender, understanding smile thru the warmth of the sun, momentarily popped out from behind the incoming storm clouds.  I lifted my face to soak up the sweet rays and as a soft grin worked its way across my face, I knew the biggest part of this battle was over…and He had won.

Quite honestly, knowing that I didn’t run away from Him this time…
that I didn’t seek out a path of my own making and cheat on my truest Love…
that the floods didn’t sweep me away with their seductive charms…
all of that was so much more of a reward for me than anything else could even touch…
or so I thought.

What happened next is what I can’t begin to explain…and so I won’t try to translate it other than to say that I got a pre-heaven hug that enveloped my heart in a warm embrace this afternoon.  I wish I could say more but you can be sure, I will never be the same again after it…because I now know, with the deepest of  convictions, that the Lord is realinvolved…and willing to bless the one who is willing to just surrender.

This is a song that I have been replaying over and over on my iPod as I have prayed, studied, rested and sought out His help in this process…and so I share it now as a meaningful altar of praise to my Father, Friend and Savior, without Whom I would be nothing.
