When I Fall Down

I have my plans, I run ahead.
My day filled with important things.

No time to lose, no time for You.
No time at all, or so it seems.

I run too fast, I can’t slow down.
I never hear You when you call.

Run faster still, I lose my step.
You long to catch me as I fall.

And then I fall

I fall down. I look around.
Will you come and rescue me?

When I fall down, I look around –
But Your face I cannot see.

Lord, won’t You come and rescue me?

When I fall down…

I look above – And there You are.
A face of love.  Oh, a gentle heart.

I lift my arms. You pick me up.
You hold me tight.  How I feel Your love.

And now I know…

You saw me run. You stayed close by.
You love me still.  Oh, how loved am I!

I’ll look around and there You’ll be,
Always watching out for me.

Now I know you’re there for me.

Lord, your love has rescued me.

When I fall down…

I'm a wife, a mom, and a mia (my own special word for grandma). You may or may not be these things, and that’s okay. Chances are we're still a lot alike. I’m certain we share some of the same struggles and ponder many of the same questions. We're busy and we're tired -can I get an amen? Yet, here we are, trying to live meaningful lives, positively impact those around us, and add a little sunshine wherever we go. But it’s not easy, is it? We mess up. Life gets tough. We find ourselves in need of a friend. Someone to encourage us, stand by us, and speak truth into us. To remind us we are not alone. That, sweet sister, is where I hope to come in - not with all the answers (I’m still searching for some myself), but with a genuine concern for you and a desire to walk alongside you on this incredible -and oftentimes arduous- journey called life.
