quick feet, still soul

My feet are keeping a moderate pace while my heart races. My breathing is ragged, but not wheezing. And while my arms swing, keeping time, my soul is somehow as still as it has been in weeks. The shuffle of songs pouring through my body wash my heart from the grime and worry of the world... and keep peace.

i made you promises a thousand times, i tried to hear from heaven but talked the whole time.
 i think i made you too small.  are You fire? are You fury? are You sacred? are You beautiful?
what do i know? what do i know of holy?

draw me close to You, never let me go
You are my desire, no one else will do...cause nothing else can take Your place...
what if Your blessings come through raindrops, what if Your healing comes through tears?
what if my greatest disappointments, or the aching of this life,
is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can't satisfy?
and what if trials of this life...the rain, the storms, the hardest nights...
are Your mercies in disguise?
there could never be a more beautiful you

oh, how He loves us so...

And with my ever so still soul, it was as if I could feel Him reaching down, wiping my salty tears away.

Oh, so happy you're not wheezing now. And to have your soul stilled and your spirit renewed is blessing poured out. Hugs to you, Dawn.

I'm so with you on this...there are times when I just have to walk and listen and let HIM wash over me. Glad you were able to enjoy such a time...and breathe a tad bit better too. Hugs and love!

Such a powerful voice in your ear...pushing you through. I'm so happy you are able to move again like you do....even if you are at a slower pace, it is a faster pace than most people. XOXO
