In the midst of days where I have believed the lies that the world would have be claim…a line from a song that has delightfully haunted me…

‘Don’t look to the right or to the left…keep your eyes on me.’

-Bethel Music

Surrounded by women whose company I am humbled and inspired by the other evening – I felt as though the Lord was whispering to me this line over and over.  It has stayed in my mind and in my heart.  The words are healing and are true.  They are certainly not always easy to obey; I would foolishly choose to think that relationships, great organizational skills, waking up early consistently, having a really clean house, knowing with absolute confidence what next year will hold for Abi’s education, eating well all the time, working out with great regularity…and on and on…

I am tempted to believe that those things will provide me with peace.  That they will provide me with comfort and fulfillment.  I try over and over again to control my soul’s journey…this is not what is asked of me.  Gently and graciously the Lord whispers…’please, keep your eyes on me.’ 

And in this place, here I find the fullness of joy.
