Lately there’s a song that’s just been playing over and over in my head. Jason Reeve’s “Old-Fashioned Letters” (it’s sad so don’t say I didn’t warn you!) and there is one line…
“I want to run, but I resist it.”
Ugh, goodness gracious this line. I want to run, but I resist it. You know it takes a lot of effort to run, but it seems to take MORE effort to stay.
Staying is hard.
Waiting is hard.
Being in a difficult transition, with no direction, and a whole lot of anxiety–yeah, staying there is hard.
When the big things are out of whack, I need to learn to be better at leaning into them. Leaning into HIM, leaning into the Word, and leaning into the waiting.
It’s actually refinement.
And I always wanted to a refined lady, polished and graceful in the waiting.
