Into Faith I Go…

I love how God sends me songs just when I need them, confirming all He is teaching, saying ‘Well done, you are listening!’  It has been a while since I have heard from God in this way and I have missed it, began to crave it.  

This song “Into Faith I Go”, by Pat Barrett, came through my YouTube feed, and once I heard it, I knew it was from God, telling me not to give up, stay the course and keep pushing through. Through this song, I hear Him saying to me, “I know it is scary, I know you are tired, but fear is no longer an option.  Turning back and assuming old behaviors and roles is no longer an option.   I love how you look for me in every experience, every day.  I hear your prayers to know me more intimately.  I hear your prayers to sharpen your eyes to see what I want you to see, to hear what I want you to hear, and the courage to say the things I want you to say in each encounter.   There is so much I want to show you, people I want you to meet, and unspeakable joy to experience.  I am with you, walking beside you, I am so very proud of you my beloved!”

Into Faith I Go

I’ve never been good at change
If I’m honest, it’s always scared me
But I can’t deny this stirring deep inside me
Now I know it’s time to stop resisting
‘Cause I’m not getting any younger
Fear is a such a sad way to live a life
So face to the wind, I’m jumping out, I’m walking in
Every single thing You want to show me
To the ups and downs, the highs and lows
The taking in, the letting go
To tears and laughter, the great unknown
To the open journey, into faith, I go
Into faith, I go
Nobody said this would be easy
Anyone who did never went through anything painful
But faith is not some fragile thing that 
Shatters when we walk through something hard
So, we walk on whatever may come
To the ups and downs, the highs and lows
The taking in, the letting go
To tears and laughter, the great unknown
To the open journey, into faith, I go
Running like a child in an open field
Stepping off the edge, I’m facing all my fears
If this is what it feels like to be born again
I’ll be born again
So when I feel like giving up
When I feel like throwing it all away
I look back over my shoulder
And I can see Your goodness every single step that I have taken
And it beats like a drum
And it rings like a bell
And it sings like a choir
And it’s leading me on my way
Oh, You lead me on my way
To the ups and downs, the highs and lows
The taking in, the letting go
To tears and laughter, the great unknown
To the open journey, into faith, I go
Into faith, I go
Into faith, I go

    Over the past month or so, I have been struggling. I am not even sure what it is I am struggling with. I have had a feeling of heaviness, despair and sorrow. I feel as if tears are welling up just behind my face, somewhere deep inside. I have had a difficult time talking about this because I’m not even sure what these feelings are or what they are about.
    Through prayer and journaling, I was given a word to stay quiet and still. As I rest and refrain from ‘doing’ anything, God would reveal the answers I’m seeking.
    Tonight I was impressed to open my blog and look for a post I had made months back. I wasn’t even sure what I was looking for, but I was drawn to open “Into Faith I Go”. As I read the words had written months ago, and listened to the song by Pat Barrett, I knew God was speaking to me, reminding me that this journey is difficult and I am going to want to give up and give in, but not give up because He is with me and the journey is far from over…
    If you are feeling weary and tired, and want to give up or give in to a life that is less than what the Father has planned and prepared for you, I hope you listen to the song, and that these words will encourage you not to give up!~♡
    Into faith I go!
