If you're not a person of faith, you may want to skip this post.
But I heard this new song by Sanctus Real today and it reminded me of the ways in which God changes us ... either through our relationship with our children or in other ways. As adoptive parents we are continually challenged ... but maybe this is God's way of refining us, of doing things in our lives, of heading us in a new direction.
I thought the song very appropriate for me lately. Maybe it is appropriate for you too.
Whatever You're Doing by Sanctus Real
It's time for healing time to move on It's time to fix what's been broken too long Time make right what has been wrong It's time to find my way to where I belong There's a wave that's crashing over me All I can do is surrender
(Chorus) Whatever you're doing inside of me It feels like chaos somehow there's peace It's hard to surrender to what I can't see but I'm giving in to something heavenly
Time for a milestone Time to begin again Revaluate who I really am Am I doing everything to follow your will or just climbing aimlessly over these hills So show me what it is you want from me I give everything I surrender... To...
Time to face up Clean this old house Time to breathe in and let everything out That I've wanted to say for so many years Time to to release all my held back tears
Whatever you're doing inside of me It feels like chaos but I believe You're up to something bigger than me Larger than life something heavenly
Whatever you're doing inside of me It feels like chaos but now I can see This something bigger than me Larger than life something heavenly Something heavenly
It's time to face up Clean this old house Time breathe in and let everything out
