     I found it tonight, in a dim little corner I never looked in before. It hadn't left me, though I thought I'd misplaced it. I had been too long silent, too dry and fruitless; my eyes had grown dim with wandering.
     I was looking for It; I knew the Words, I saw the Light, I held the knowledge that puffeth up. But I was still looking; for ages I searched, retracing a path grown over with weeds, pushing aside brambles and cobwebs of time. I was looking, I was looking! Beyond new tunes and the modern era! Past old hymns that dripped martyr's blood! I waded streams of legend and forgotten truths; past the legalism, the re'em, the unicorns of India, the dragonkillers on armored horses. I tasted the air of struggling history and coughed on the blowing sands of deserts. I passed the ashes of saints and witches and marveled at caves scrawled over with stories. I peered at the great ship in high mountain snow. I learned old names and forgot them; I searched for old myths and found them wanting. I wondered at invisible things and trembled. I sat and wept in the Cave of Treasures and knew it to be only a tomb. I looked across barren lands at distant precious things I could not have. Then I stood in the dimness of nightfall, troubled and sad, drawn to something I couldn't fathom.
     "What am I looking for?" I yelled at the silence; it broke, and then fell back around me. I was dust; I was sister to the earth that gritted in my eyelids and filled my ears. "What I've grown up with, I don't understand! What I see I don't comprehend! What's wrong with me? What have I lost, or did I never know it?"
     "But you've had it all along, Child. Since before Time began."
     "What is it, then? What demands that I find and taste?"
     "Creator God! Life-giver! Lord of the Sabbath, Lover of your immortal soul!"
     And then I wept; I watered my withered heart with tears that soothed and nourished and beckoned a sprout. From chains my tongue was loosed, and I sang with a joy long forgotten, and remembered the hidden road to prayer. On the horizon a new dawn broke free.

My, My, my.  Is it 'co-incidence' or does everyone here has a knack for writing? Cheesy

Throughly enjoyed that.  It reminded me of a time (since becoming a Christian) when I had so many questions but no answers.  Knowing that something was missing from my life but not sure what until one day He revealed to me that I needed to really open my heart to Him.  I will never forget that experience, such joy, love, comfort happiness.
And then I wept; I watered my withered heart with tears that soothed and nourished and beckoned a sprout. From chains my tongue was loosed, and I sang with a joy long forgotten, and remembered the hidden road to prayer

Thank you Jesus for using WillowBirch to remind me of that day.

Leaving for now, I feel the praises coming on


Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thine ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths  ~~~~Proverbs 3:5-6
