Give Me Revelation

My heart carries a heavy burden. For the last two years my freelance writing has carried the family. Actually, if I admit the truth, God has carried us through these last two years and my freelance writing has only been one of the conduits that He has used. But things are hard right now. We are literally up against a rock and a hard place.

I was sitting here thinking about what I need to be doing – what different and new things to do, what things to continue and what things to confess – and I realized that the song playing in the background on my radio was Third Day’s “Revelation.”

“I’m tired of losing hope and taking chances
On roads that never seem
To be the ones that bring me home

Give me a revelation
Show me what to do
‘Cause I’ve been trying to find my way
I haven’t got a clue
Tell me should I stay here
Or do I need to move
Give me a revelation
I’ve got nothing without you

My life has led me down this path that’s ever winding
Through every twist and turn, I’m always finding
That I am lost again
Tell me when this road will ever end.”

The lyrics to songs have spoken to me when nothing else could get through. I was wringing my hands wondering how and when and where and the answer was right behind me all the time. I am nothing without the guidance of the Lord. I have nothing with out the blessings of God. I can not get through without the strength of Christ that lives in me through Him.

It is not so bad being up against a rock and a hard place when that rock is the Rock. My life may seem out of order but when I turn back to Him, no matter where I am turning from, then He can breathe order back into who I am and who I am becoming.
