Godspeed

Sometimes the rubber meets the road. We screech to a halt. Where we face our frailty, ineptness, fears.

We're forced to lay down our arms. Lay down our opinions. Lay down at the foot of the cross.

And hold on to His truths. His security. His hand. We have to choose to hold our grip on peace and know that it will bypass our dim wittedness, shroud our doubts, and face
down our fears.

Yes, when the rubber meets the road, fear meets Faith.
doubt meets Hope.
anxiety meets Truth.
depression meets Joy.
stubborn independence meets Rest.
you, and i, meet our Savior, Jesus.

When your rubber meets your road, may your journey be peace-filled... Godspeed.



*Here I Am, Shawn McDonald
I lay myself at Your feet
Asking You won't You meet
Won't You meet me
I cannot do it on my own
I cannot do it all alone
Here I am, oh, tonight
With my arms open wide
Won't You come inside
Won't You come inside, God
Come and fill this heart of mine
I'm in need of You
Of Your touch, of Your life, of Your love
I need You
I need You

My pastor said today that fear and faith cannot coexist. I choose faith! My God is bigger! Love you sweet Sam!

That's absolutely beautiful. The words sweet surrender came to mind as the song was playing. There is nothing sweeter than running to Him. Thank you for sharing!
