On a personal prayer retreat this past weekend the following verse by Rich Mullins stood out to me.
You who live in eternity
Hear the prayers of those of us who live in time
We can’t see what’s ahead
And we can not get free of what we’ve left behind
I’m reeling from these voices that keep screaming in my ears
All the words of shame and doubt, blame and regret
I can’t see how You’re leading me unless You’ve led me here
Where I’m lost enough to let myself be led
And so You’ve been here all along I guess
It’s just Your ways and You are just plain hard to get
(“Hard to Get” by Rich Mullins © 1998 Liturgy Legacy Music)
Am I at a place that I’m ready to be lead again?
