Like a child

As I was driving into Saskatoon for work this morning, I was absolutely floored by God. I’ve been listening to Starfield for the past week (thanks to my bro-in-law Wes) and the song Can I stay here forever blew me away today. God spoke so loudly to me through it. There I was driving down Idylwyld with tears streaming down my face…and it was one of the most beautiful feelings in the world. Check out these lyrics: they pretty much describe exactly where I’ve been lately and where I am today.

through forgotten convictions,
misplaced affections
i’m losing the sound of Your voice.
i’ve been chasing after emptiness,
trying to tidy up this mess
and i swear that i’ve been down this road before.
i wanna get back to where it all began
when i would long for only you.

like a child i’ll take You at Your word
as these mountains of doubt, they fade away
i’m longing to trust and love you more

so for me this is beautiful
a brand new thought and a brand new world
can i stay here forever, here with you?

i’ve lost sight of what first drew me
to the love that persued me,
the joy that inspired my song.
the friendship that was all i knew,
the arms that i would fall into
seem miles and years from where i am today.
i gotta get back to where it all began
when i would wait for only you

like a child i’ll take you at your word
as these mountains of doubt they fade away
i’m longing to trust and love you more

so for me this is beautiful
a brand new thsought and a brand new world
can i stay here forever here with you?
