Leaving the nest...
Hi everyone! This is my very first post, very exciting.
I'm outside in the beautiful sun, listening to 'little river' by the tallest man on earth, eating chocolate ice cream, it's just perfect!
Recently, I have been thinking a lot about the future and trying to work out what God wants me to do. Gap years, university, it all seems to coming too fast, and I find myself panicking and trying to plan every little detail. Last night I was reading the Bible last, and I read a few verses which inspired me to write a short song (I'm not sure I can even call it a song, more like a jumble of words that came to me, blended with a few Bible verses and a hint of a tune):
O my soul, why do you worry,
why do you fret.
My weathered heart, why do you search,
when He is right beside you.
My weary spirit, why do you burden yourself
For neither death, nor life,
nor angles, nor ruling spirits,
nothing now, nothing in the future,
nothing above us, nothing below us,
nor anything in the whole world will ever separate us
from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
So He will rekindle my flame
I shall fly off into the horizon
rise on His wings, soar,
my heart will soar.
For I am in His hands.
2 Timothy 1:7 : 'For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind'.
Lots of love
