i just found something i wrote 3 months ago,
after the tornado.
that storm gave us perspective and we clung to it,
waiting for the commotion to die down
so we could finally move on and begin
to do life differently...
to somehow do it better.
you and i will follow
you and i, maybe.
maybe another day
we'll shoo all our cares away
'cause when this wind stops
we're pullin' all the stops.
when it dies,
we live and carry on
a new way.

i dismiss fear,
the robber of every good thing.
it prepares me for nothing.
it neither braces me for my world that fa l l s a p a r t ,
nor comforts me amidst the rubble.
i choose joy,
of a deeper corner
of the very heart
of the One who saves me;
of who He truly is.
and as i learn of Him, i trust Him.
and my world falls apart.
and this time i see Him
picking uP the pieces
to BUILD FOR ME
an eternal weight of glory.
"Therefore we do not lose heart.
Even though our outward man is perishing,
yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment,
is working for us a far more exceeding
and eternal weight of glory,
while we do not look at the things which are seen,
but at the things which are not seen.
For the things which are seen are temporary,
but the things which are not seen are eternal."
~2 Corinthians 4:16-18
