Tears, tears and more tears...

3.28.2009

Thursday night and all day Friday, I cried. The silent tears rolling down your face kind of cry...Tears of deep seated fear and pain...Like the ones I shed when my mom died. Like the ones I shed when I knew that Brooklyn was going to live with another family. Like ones I shed when I said good bye to Brooklyn at the hospital, fully expecting to never see her again...

I am not at liberty to share what the circumstances are for this latest bout of tears. Perhaps one day I can. The point of this post is to share what an arrogant fool I am.

Here I am, this puny speck of dust, looking up into the vast heavens that God spoke into existence with a word, the One Who holds it all together with the power of His word, the One who feeds the ravens, the One Who clothes the lilies of the fields, the One Who is Truth, the One Who is the author of all life and I say to this mighty Sovereign God...

I am afraid to trust You with this...
Even so, He is merciful and kind to me...He relieves my fears, brings peace to my soul and dries my tears....
How deep is Your love
How high and how wide is Your mercy
How deep is Your grace
Our hearts overflow with praise
To You
