Love Song For Me


I'll never forget this day.

Not just because I had a prophetic dream last night that was so beautiful, I kept trying to fall back asleep this morning to return to it.

Not just because it was a glimmering winter day, and I got to talk to my children about Martin Luther King, Jr. and diversity and how to love other people well.

Not just because a cloud of ten thousand birds flew over my house this morning, leaving me staring out the window, speechless.

Not just because when I was driving at sunset tonight and listening to the best Switchfoot song, the music was suddenly in perfect cadence with the sky, and exactly as a drumbeat hit, a tree burst open into thousands more birds that began soaring over me like a slow-motion film. 

Today is the day I became an active part of the love story God is writing through me.

Today, I became a leading lady in my own life and put aside all the fear that's been holding me back - crippling me - for so long. I stopped grasping for control and instead let the music sweep me up and away.

Today, I found safety in the Creator of this wild, beautiful world and decided to believe - really believe - that if He can take care of all those things, He can surely take care of me. Because the glory of this world can actually leave you speechless if you have eyes to see. And the best news? There's so much more waiting for us, friends. 

When your fear is currency
And you feel that urgency
You want peace but there's war in your head

Maybe that's where life is born
When our facades are torn
Pain gives birth to the promise ahead

If you could let the pain of the past go
Of your soul
None if this is in your control

If you could only let your guard down
If you could learn to trust me somehow
I swear, that I won't let you go

If you could only let go your doubts
If you could just believe in me now
I swear, that I won't let you go

~ Switchfoot, I Won't Let You Go
