A few months ago I wrote some words down on my phone's notepad that were intended for a song, and I really haven't touched them since. I couldn't quite find anything else to go with the lyrics, so I have just left them on my phone.
Today, these words seem so much more stronger, more compassionate, and have become a prayer for my family. I can't do anything without my Savior, and I can only have the greatest success, comfort, and peace when I dwell in His shadow. When I live for that intimate moment where God clearly communicates His purpose, His clarity, and His wisdom into my life. From this moment forward, this is my battle cry, this is my prayer, this is my creed. This, this is what I have began to cling to in the past few days to find comfort in my Savior, as we mourn the loss of our little Sawyer. During these moments I have found strength dwelling in His shadow.
"I wanna be obsessed with Your love, consumed in Your glory, and walk daily in the shelter of Your shade. So I give You my heart, I lift my hands as a sign of surrender to You. Let me dwell in this moment, live for this moment where everything is clear and my life is a reflection of You."
