he rises to show you compassion.
For the LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!"
"he will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears
from all faces;
he will remove the disgrace of his people
from all the earth.
The LORD has spoken.
9 In that day they will say,
'Surely this is our God;
we trusted in him, and he saved us.
This is the LORD, we trusted in him;
let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.'"

Darling, do you think that's why I keep running?
Do you think that's why I keep looking for this thing I have such a hard time defining?
Do you think that's why I desire for what you showed me to be a part of my life?
Because I thought it would be a part of ours.
But now, it will be yours.
And because of that, even when I think about calling it "mine", it still feels as if I've come up short.
Will any of this ever be home without you?
Will I ever know home without you?
Well, if I never find "home", I never have to face those questions.
So here's to movement...
My blessing and my curse....
And I'll try my hardest not to miss you.

The straight, unfiltered, untampered, difficult words of Jesus himself and not what I have always thought they were. Not my preconceived ideas. Not my childhood church's rhetoric. Not the politics of any man.
Just Him. And His heart. And how loudly it speaks to mine.
I care for them because He cares for them and I know He is who He says He is.
I know that I know that I know that His words must be obeyed... not out of any guilt or obligation. But rather because they contain life. They give freedom. Because they are the only way for me to live. Because through them alone can I make sense of myself. Because they are my only hope and the only hope I have to offer the hopeless. Because they have been tested and have come forth as true. Because they resonate deep within my spirit as that binding tie that of all humanity is searching for. Because they settle my soul and welcome me home. Because they pursue me gently when I run away. Because they inspire me passionately when I am stagnant. Because they make me feel. Because they make me sincere. Because they make me alive.
