Lay It Down

I’ve been looking ‘til my eyes are tired of looking
Listening ‘til my ears are numb from listening
Praying ‘til my knees are sore from kneeling
On the bedroom floor

I know that You know that my heart is aching
I’m running out of tears and my will is breaking
I don’t think that I can carry
The burden of it anymore


All of my hopes and my dreams and my best laid plans
Are slowly slipping through my folded hands


So I’m gonna lay it down
I’m gonna learn to trust You now
What else can I do
Everything I am depends on You

And if the sun don’t come back up
I know Your love will be enough
I’m gonna let it be, I’m gonna let it go
I’m gonna lay it down


[Jaci Velasquez]

    beautiful words. its hard for people to lay things down, they always feel like they have to be doing, or keeping or striving or struggling. .

    its kind of an expansion on the ‘revelation’ post… maybe i’m laying down someONE… knowing that even if I never get to take it (him) back up again, God is enough.

    when you get to the ‘even if’ point, you know you’re getting somewhere!
