I have never heard Daniel Amos...I want to though. Daniel Amos wrote under many pen names...I was introduced to one of them in college...The Swirling Eddies. The Eddies have become my "destressing" music on many a day...they're kind of disco funkish, maybe not the typical music you'd pin me as listening to. They're one of my favorite groups, partly because their lyrics speak a lot and I really resonate with them a lot of days. I've got this song on CD and also in my MP3 player, so I can listen to it whenever I want...it's definitely one of my favorites for a various of reasons, which I'm not going to go into today.
This week's been a definite look for me at what's fueling my light and my life. It's been a real struggle...putting your family back into a normal cycle of life...this seems to happen everytime we have a houseful. Where am I turning to deal with the stress and battles with daily life? Looking in the mirror and knowing I'm doing okay, even though things don't seem it at times. Learning to look at these next words and realize that if I'm doing this and believing this, then all things will come to pass how they're supposed to...You got a hold on me, You are my sanity, I'm thinking endlessly about You. There are days when I feel I have so much left to learn about this walk with Christ. Because of this walk being newer to me than for others around me, I feel like I'm a child in comparison somedays. I don't know...I know it's a continual learning process, but I want to jump farther up the process than I am somedays...I want to be more grown up in my Christian walk then I am.
I guess I need to just learn to be still and know that I am where I am for a reason and my walk will grow in His timing and His way! To try and find time to be with Him and listen for His guidance...for a mom of three kids, this doesn't come easy a lot of days...JC, I know You are my sanity...I know You're always here, even though I can't always feel you there...I really need Your strength to get through today...I really need to meet with You today in a strong way!
from the album "Let's Spin!"
There's a light inside of me,
once burned a little low
a fire in the hole
Deep thoughts don't occur to me
and love has fanned the flame
When I find the words to say
But it seems to me that long ago
You got a hold on me
