this is life 19.0

on

i’m mary and i’m martha all at the same time
i’m sitting at His feet and yet i’m dying to be recognized
  i am a picture of contentment and i am dissatisfied
why is it easy to work but hard to rest sometimes?

i’m restless, and i rustle like a thousand tall trees
i’m twisting and i’m turning in an endless daydream
You wrestle me at night and i wake in search of You
but try as i might, i just can’t catch You
but i want to because i need You
i can’t catch You, but i want to.

how long, how long until i’m home?
i’m so tired, so tired of running
how long until You come for me?

(audrey assad, lament)

    mhm. this is one of my favorite songs by audrey assad… it is you and it’s me and i think that’s why the lyrics means so much to us during this life-season.

    love you.
