Progress does not speak as loud as my heart

You gotta love a gentle rebuke.

I was telling my friend, Caleb, yesterday about my spiritual boredom. He informed me that my contending has gotten warped to where I was focused on the new thing instead of God. He was so right, and it was a little hard to hear.

I spent roughly 5 hours driving yesterday, so I had lots of time to talk to God about this. He told me that I had really hurt him the last few days, because I wast treating Him like He wasn't enough. Spending time with Him is ALWAYS enough, more than enough. He said, "Come closer and closer."

How did I forget that focusing on Jesus and getting closer to Him is how every new thing comes about? Hmm? I don't know. Crazy Jenny Ray. Calm down and take a chill pill.

With a longing heart you turn the tides and say goodbye
With a love that always fades
You hold on so tight, hold back the tears
Legacy that strays so strong is pulling at your heart
All the castles that you made are falling apart
Love is waiting here

Come back, in these places
In these places this is all that you need when you want to come back

Blowing in the wind a taste of something tragically
Comes to find you when you fall and when you're in need
See beneath the skin
Always waiting is a love that moves
Your pains away
Always waiting will embrace and wash tears away
Places where this begins

You make believe that the world is never going to mount you
(this place is safe)
That your love is always going to stay true
What do you see when you fall asleep
(Jesus in longing)
That you will want the blood His hands can bleed
