i don’t know what to pray for / i don’t know what to say / but my heart is breaking and i am thinking that things shouldn’t be this way / we’re stretched, we’re pulled and twisted / in ways we weren’t meant to be / it’s just too hard to let life pass quietly
hold on, let go / it’s so hard to know / what is right, what is right / hold on, let go / well it’s so hard to know what is right / what is right / what is right . . .
i want so bad to keep you / but i know that it is time / so i give you up, but not in my mind / your voice, your laugh and your stories / the things that you helped me through / your faith has helped me grow / it’s brought you home, too
hold on let go, addison road
It was one of those things that I knew was coming, and I’m glad it came sooner than later. Donald and I broke up today, it was mutual. We are okay with that. We proceeded to hang out and eat Easy Cheese and play guitar and listen to Resident Hero afterwards. Some things just aren’t meant to be.
Now, time to clear my head. Gotta get for a walk if it’ll ever stop snowing/being cold. Three days of classes to go. Life is crazy.
though the night seems long and hard / just remember, a breath will take you so far / well you breathe in and you breathe out / then you stop, then you shout / when will morning ever come?
peace will lead you home / peace will guide you when you’re alone / breathe deep, breathe deep / tomorrow’s almost here
. . . the night you fear / the silence brings the tears / and daylight seems a long dream away
well you dream big and you dream long / and hope when you awake there’ll be no storm / hold on, help is on the way
and i did not think you wouldn’t be here / and i didn’t think that i would be scared / but i find it hard to breathe / it’s so hard to see you leave / i’m holding on to pieces, holding on to me / it’s the only thing that will see me through
will you see me through / will you see me through? / will you see me through? / will you see me through?
peace, addison road
I LOVE having a God who helps me sort stuff out and who will lead me where I’m going when the time is right . . .
Mike from What Some Would Call Lies asked us to blog our 25 Most Played on iTunes. Here are mine:
I’m a little weirded out that I have more Addison Road than Flyleaf!
–I Have Always Loved You, Addison Road
This is one of a few songs that really hits me because of how it captures the message in 2 Corinthians 3:18 —
“But we all beholding the glory of the Lord with open face, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, as by the Spirit of the Lord.”
Change is important. Change is good. Changing with God? Awesome.
God transforms us continually until we are ready to be brought to our eternal home, brought into our eternal lives. God uses the brokenness of the world around and inside us to shatter us, and then build us back up stronger. He uses all of this to transform us from glory to glory—He loves who we are continually, but helps us keep building on that so we can love ourselves more.
He uses our weaknesses to give us faith in His perfection (2 Corinthians 12:9). Which is what I will discuss next post.
