Still Learning

Ever have that realisation that some of the things you’re teaching might actually be true? I’ve been teaching the youth every second Sunday morning, help and found that I’ve been relaying the thought that god works best in us in our hardest times, site and that those are the times that you learn. It’s such an easy thing to say, and even though I’ve always believed what I was saying, it hit me hard the other day, when I’ve actually been going through the process of an unexpected (although still amiable and certainly not the messiest ever) breakup I’m actually finding that it’s true!

So as hard as this time has been, (which is my poor excuse for not blogging) I’ve been seeing God’s hand in all of it. God has been blowing me away, and while I’m not saying I’ve been altogether throughout this, and there’s still a lot of nagging questions, and my fragile self-esteem has taken a hit, God’s been walking me through it. This whole relationship deal isn’t just made up! Epiphany!

Breaking Up (is hard to do)

It’s amazing the goodness of God in darkness. Only bought the new Bernard Fanning Album off iTunes and after a surprise break up with the girl I love the most in the world last night (which I didn’t initiate or see coming), ailment this song comes up on my iPod outta nowhere. Sometimes the words of a song can just say exactly what you can’t get into words.
Wish You Well
Bernard Fanning

Up so early feel so bright
Didn’t get much sleep last night
Freight train rattled through my head
Whistle blowing love is dead
Is dead

Heart attacked by fear and doubt
won’t be long till the truth comes out
first impressions never lie
Lover’s bonds they hold so fast
Restless future burning bright
The past is holding on so tight
Never heard the warning bell
And I just want to wish you well
I just want to wish you well

Welcome swallows dip and swing
Take their cue from the slightest thing
Rolling fog into my room
Why did you give up on me so soon?
So soon

Restless future burning bright
The past is holding on so tight
Never heard the warning bell
And I just want to wish you well
I just want to wish you well
I just want to wish you well
I just want to wish you well

Why did you give up on me so soon?
Did you give up on me so soon?
I just want to wish you well
I just want to wish you well
