Pass It On: Come Close and Hold My Heart

Sometimes I feel so insignificant and that no matter how muuch I pray and pray, it only goes so far. I feel as if imt he only one hearing it and it gets no further than my own ears. I feel as if, no matter how much or how long or how loud I pray god wont hear me. So many others are praying, so many others are calling out. And then there are times when I feel as if whatever i did, or whatever is holding me back is so irreversible.

But you know what’s better than getting our problems or our mistakes reversed? Being forgiven for them. being cleansed. Helped. Feeling so irrevocably relieved that the sun is just a little bit brighter and the sky is a little bluer. Feeling as if what ever other problem crops up tomorrow, the next minute or whenever, you can handle it. Feeling so completely refreshed and optimistic that if you smile at a stranger, you share some of your happiness.

The song that inspired this post is “Hold My Heart” by Tenth Avenue North. As always, the lyrics, the melody–pretty much everything–blows me away. Not only does the song signifies with me,  It also helps me to further examine myself, and brings me closer to god. It helps so much. And whomever reads this post, I also hope it helps. Its a really great song.

How long must I pray, must I pray to you?
How long must I wait, must I wait for you?
How long till I see your face, see you shining through?
I’m on my knees, begging you to notice me?
I’m on my knees, father will you turn to me?
Yeah.

One tear in the dropping rain. One voice in a sea of pain.
Could the maker of the stars hear the sound of my breaking heart.
One life is all I am, right now I can barely stand.
If your everything you say you are, would you come close and hold my heart?

I’ve been so afraid, afraid to close my eyes.
So much can slip away, before I say goodbye.
But l if theres no other way, im done asking why.

‘Cause im on my knees, begging you to turn to me.
Im on my knees, father will you run to me?
Yeah

One tear in the dropping rain. One voice in a sea of pain.
Could the maker of the stars hear the sound of my breaking heart.
One life is all I am, right now I can barely stand.
If your everything you say you are, would you come close and hold my heart.

So many questions without answer, your promises remain.
I cant see but i’ll take my chances, to hear you call my name.
To hear you call my name.

One tear in the dropping rain. One voice in a sea of pain.
Could the maker of the stars hear the sound of my breaking heart.
One life is all I am, right now I can barely stand.
If your everything you say you are, would you come close and hold my heart.
