the day when I will finally be free

I don’t know how to follow you without losing my way
Jesus come and take me by the hand
I don’t know how to trust that you will do the things you say
Spirit teach me how to understand
That your love can heal the wreckage of my soul
The beauty of your light shining in me
I don’t know when you’ll take me home to paradise with you
The day when I will finally be free
Oh the day when you come back for me

-JJ Heller

this song puts words to how my heart feels right now.
I'm weary and desperate for Jesus to heal what feels like wreckage in my soul.
and I am waiting, waiting, waiting for freedom.
I don't know how to trust and rest in Jesus yet I want to so badly.
and I'm longing for home in the face-to-face presence of Jesus,
more than ever aware that here will never be enough.
