"Why settle? What is this— Catan?!"
It’s too dark I just can’t see the light
The weight of all my inadequacies
Runs, turns back, laughs at me.
Friend or foe, comfort or pain—
Where I once saw difference, now stands the same.
For a moment I felt Your warmth,
Why did you take it from me?
I once held it all, kept it all as my own.
Role’s reversed, tables turned; Master to which I’m indebted was once bound as my slave.
“Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord ’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions NEVER fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. Let him sit alone in silence, for the Lord has laid it on him. Let him bury his face in the dust— there may yet be hope. Let him offer his cheek to one who would strike him, and let him be filled with disgrace. For no one is cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to anyone. (Lamentations 3:21-33 NIV)
"I tell my piano the things I used to tell you."
"Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens."
(How many times have I done this…)
