Sweeter.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately. About things. About people. About God.

And laughing. Laughing because something new is in the air. Something light has found it’s way to my heart and is settling in. The old has gone and the new has come. And I had nothing to do with it.

Actually, funny enough, just writing this, I realized what happened to cause this shift. But it fits in that category, a very small category I will confess, of things that I don’t blog about. And no, it has nothing to do with a boy.

It has to do with forgiveness. healing. confession. humbleness. acceptance. renewal. understanding. honesty. contentment. dependence. love.

This song bizarrely came on my iPod today in the car – I haven’t listened to it in years – and I laughed. For all those reasons. This is the chorus:

I am holding on to promises. I’m counting on the truth.
And on these knees, I’m faltering, I’m calling out to You.
In Your love, I find my resting place.
In Your love, I find my shelter.
When I lay down all that I’ve been holding to
The beauty I found in You is sweeter than all I’ve known.
In Your love.

It’s called “In Your Love” by Nichole Nordeman. The entire thing is fantastic, but I’ll spare you every lyric.

But that’s where I am. Realizing a lot lately. About things. About people. About God. About what contentment really is and how it has nothing to do with me or my circumstances. Honestly, it’s about remembering that God is always good.

That He really is sweeter than all I’ve ever known.
