The songs I picked for this week is Casting Crowns' "Somewhere in the Middle" and "The Altar and the Door". So much of these songs could have been plucked out of my head and heart over the last couple of months. They are all about giving it up and giving over to God, of losing pride, of taking that first step into the unknown, of truly laying it down at the altar and not dragging it back with you, of knowing that the real world is scary and will test and try you to the end of your rope, but most importantly, the very human and painful struggle of accepting who God is and laying it all down and following on faith.
All relationships are a journey and the relationship that means the most will, by necessity, be the hardest, with the most battles and the most struggle. Jesus will always be who he is, our struggle is to become who God made us to be.
