“Through forgotten convictions
I’m losing the sound of Your voice
I’ve been chasing after emptiness
Trying to tidy up this mess
I swear I’ve been down this road before
I want to get back to where it all began
When I would long for only You”
I don’t know how I managed to lose my way when I started out so strong this year. My only consolation for this is that there are bigger obstacles and newer challenges because I am leveling up. But it doesn’t negate the fact that I have been distracted and things have become superficial and ultimately routine. So many instances have I been patching it all up with futile efforts and seemingly helpful self-encouragement, but all of these things did not provide a lasting relief. I know and acknowledge the situation I have been in, and all I desire is to go back to Your heart.
