In a day filled with such chaos.
In a day filled with the worries of life.
I become stuck and uncertain.
Uncertain about the choices and decisions that lie ahead.
Stuck between the expectations and realities that the world seems to throw at me.
From love to lust.
From wealth to greed.
What is right and what is wrong?
I wake up each day with the fear of trust.
With the fear of rejection and accpetance.
Rejection from those I hold dear to heart.
Acceptance from those I rather not name
From the clothes that I wear to the words that I preach
Where do I find rest?
Where do I find peace and stillness?
When people disappoint me
When people hurt me
When people forget about me
Where do I find hope?
Your word is a lamp unto my darkened path
Your voice is a sound of grace and tranquility
Your presence is soft and whole
But where do I find you when I feel alone and scared?
But where do I go when I feel broken and hurt?
But what do I do Lord, to find the stillness and peace you so freely offer?
You are all around me
You are living inside me
You are in the hearts of those that claim you are Yahweh
You are in the eyes of those that show your love
You are in the wind and in the sky
In the stars and in the moon
Your beauty surrounds me
Your mercy overtakes me
Where there is chaos there is peace
Where there is hurt there is restoration
So in a day where I need to find amazement and acceptance
In a day where I need guidance that can be found in silence
On the days where I feel least capable and defeated
I look to you
Around me and through me
In the business and the stillness
I find you
Through the storm and the drought
I see you
