Here sitting, I’m uneasy; but where on earth do I go?
Looking in, to look out; beyond myself I must see
Don’t dare stop, or give up pace; step by step, you must move
Search my will, by taking risks; discern, the word is with you.
Crossing over, takes strength; from above, you will succeed
Moving mountains, is not your chore; simply ask, and then receive.
When your muscles, feel rest is needed, downhill, I give you speed
Trust, in my ability; let go, move like the wind
Without effort, buildings tumble, and ruble is blown from view
Yet in that wind, flowers are tickled; their sweet laughter, a song in the breeze.
Through obedience, my love rises
Lifting my children, through every hard time.
I love you all, so dearly; please share of my grace
Then mountains become ocean, of pleasure not pain
What is life, if not sharing; and breath, if not blown
With love, go ye gently; help me rescue, their weary soul
I teach all, who will listen; to partake, of my grace
So that when all is over, together we will claim
“My God, you are amazing!” not “How, did I not see?”
All sin, can be forgotten; in peace, we must all be
My Jesus, sweet Jesus, I thank you for all
Cross carried, pain taken; so we would not fall
“Walk swiftly”, you beseech me; oh please, let me run
Toward you, till I reach you, no burden is too strong
This world will not weight me, if I give all away
Riches, to the earthly; so they, might see gain
My troubles, I gladly, lay at your feet
Replaced with, your abundance, so all may be fed
Please show me, where the need is, so all may have life
Not of things, which will perish, but of walls without bounds
Not separation, but protection; to loved ones in need
Encouragement and mercy, a hand up to breath
You saved me; I see that, and the road which lies ahead
Your face, is so lovely; I see you so clear
Your eyes are like rivers, flowing waters, with no end
You rest now; I will paddle and accomplish your work
Your job now, is finished; in agreement I am
Spreading the mission, to others, just as you said
Not my voice, but yours, in the ear of the world
Your sweet words, just melts them; I stand in awe
Pride in your accomplishment, no matter the job
You knew how you would use me, which still makes me laugh,
all that kicking and fighting, like I knew what’s best.
All days are so peaceful, when I rest in your will,
how fulfilling is my purpose, serving you does not fail.
How far, was the question, must I go on this road?
How long will it take me, quickest route I must know?
Now realizing the journey is about travel; not speed
and the stranded you are passing, or the hiker in need.
Moving in your provision, even here as I sit
through this world I travel, with all my needs met.
