in the silence there's nowhere left to run

You give and take away for my good.
For who am I to say what I need?
For You alone see the hidden parts of me
that need to be stripped away.

And as You begin to refine,
I’m learning to let go and rely
on One who walks with me.
As hard as it may be,
You’re teaching me all the while to say:

Bless the Lord, O my soul.
All that’s in me bless Your name,
Forget not Your power untold,
not Your glory or Your fame.
For You came to heal the broken,
to redeem and make me whole.
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
- Laura Story

Psalm 62:5-8
I will wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress where I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor come from God alone.
He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
O my people, trust in Him at all times.
Pour out your heart before Him,
for God is our refuge.

I will not give up this fight.
I will not carry this heart of stone.
I will stop wanting to get beyond my need for grace.

Thank you for this, Rachel. This post popped out to me, and now I know it is what God had for me today. I don't know you, but we are connected in Him. Yours is the first blog I chose to "follow".

Hmmm. It's nice to meet you. It's exciting to hear from someone who wasn't already a friend. Welcome. I look forward to getting to know you.
