A balancing act......

I'm finding that life is its best when you balance your time with God as the main focus. I was told the other day that obedience must come before God can truly reveal His plan for your life. The more i thought about it the more i realized how much this has rang true in my own life. Every moment in my life that I was able to really learn something about myself or about Gods plan for my life, I'm always being obedient at that point in my life. That isn't often enough i feel.

So I ask for prayer for my family today because we lost a great man to the Lord today. My uncle Bill, went home and I'll miss him until i arrive myself. I have this picture from when i was younger of him holding me, when i think of a picture of genuine love i think of that picture. His eyes are closed as he is hugging me and i feel like the picture caught a glimpse of real love in peoples lives. I wrote a song kind of talking about that love. I view it as the love of a child.

Tell me how
it was so easy to wrap my arms
around you when I was younger
I think I lost a part of me
When I decided to grow up

Is love defined by what we do
who we are, or the place we lay our head?
I miss you now
more than I did when you were here
Its always like that
I take for granted what I have until it's gone
make me a promise that tonight you'll stay
by my side
cause i don't need to feel alone tonight

with my head in my hands
soft spoken words try to comfort me
but this conversation with this ghost is keeping me awake
I think I still have to many rats in the cellar
to possibly think about being able to sleep

Is love defined by what we do
who we are, or the place we lay our head?
I miss you now
more than I did when you were here
Its always like that
I take for granted what I have until it's gone
make me a promise that tonight you'll stay
by my side
cause i don't need to feel alone tonight

and now that you've reached heaven without me
promise you'll wait up until I can get there myself
I don't know when, but when I see you
I swear I'll love you like a child once again

Love you all. peace.
