(Sorry, back-to-back notes. There’s much on my mind; I’m not sure where to start.
I shrink from answering your questions out of fear that I’ll say what I don’t mean.
Today was about laying down burdens to the One who can carry them.
The evidence of burdens entrusted is to walk away with joy.
You’re called to live, not to linger.
“…What is that to you? You — follow Me.”)
I can’t walk without watching where I’m going
I can’t speak without knowing what to say
I can’t love and have any hesitation
Cause I know that you don’t work that way
…I’m not gonna fight you anymore
Not gonna try to lock the door
You took your life and gave me yours
There’s no reason why
I shouldn’t trust you with mine
It’s never easy changing my direction
It’s so unnatural to loosen up my grip
Are you growing weary of all my good intentions
Cause I know that You don’t work that way
Somedays… This weight upon my shoulder
Is my shame
I know I should know better
Cause you say
That I must now surrender
There’s no other way
