...fighting to stay open

Today on my way home from work, Like a Lake by Sarah Groves came on my iPod. Without going into details, let's just say it spoke directly to my heart and where I am right now. Thank you Lord for using music to minister to me.

I tried to find a YouTube video but couldn't. Try going here, to Sara Grove's myspace page. You will have to scroll down the page until you find track no. 9, and you can stream it directly from there.

Like a Lake:
so much hurt and preservation
like a tendril round my soul
so much painful information
no clear way on how to hold it


when everything in me is tightening
curling in around this ache
I will lay my heart wide open
like the surface of a lake
wide open like a lake

standing at this waters edge
looking in at God's own heart
I've no idea where to begin
to swallow up the way things are

everything in me is drawing in
closing in around this pain
I will lay my heart wide open
like the surface of a lake
wide open like a lake

bring the wind and bring the thunder
bring the rain till I am tried
when it's over bring me stillness
let my face reflect the sky
and all the grace and all the wonder
of a peace that I can't fake
wide open like a lake

everything in me is tightening
curling in around this ache
I am fighting to stay open
I am fighting to stay open
open open oh wide open
open like a lake
