Carry me

Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose trust is the LORD. “For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit.”

-Jeremiah 17: 7-8

I love Scripture and music because they say what I can’t find the words for… I feel like a mush of emotions sometimes. I think I’m a reed swaying in the wind… but I want to be like a tree planted by the waters.

 The heart is more deceitful than all else And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?

-Jeremiah 17:9

Circumstances = unstable

my desire = stability

but,

circumstances ≠ stability

So I have a choice.

Chase my desire, chase stability, encounter frustration and heart sickness because I can only find fleeting… and unsustainable satisfaction

or

Be still and trust in the Lord and who God says He is

and give up the chase and rest in His embrace.

"God will allow those things we put our trust in to disappoint us so we can turn to Him- the one true and LIVING GOD that does not disappoint." -Marissa Vignola

That seems easy enough… but I can’t do it. Why can’t I do it?

I need you to carry me Lord… I need you to carry me.

One thought on “Carry me

  1. We all need to be carried sometimes Katie, just like “Footprints in the Sand”!! Read “My Problem with Grace” while flying to & from Texas last week. As always, I love your open, honest, and candid sharing of your heart!! Good thing there is a lot of blank spaces or this non reader might not have finished it in those 12+ hours lol
