Song of the week...

Stumble After You

Would I smile if I was broken? Would I dance on crippled feet?
Would I fall too far behind again, or run a race I know I can’t complete?
Would I give if I had nothing, and could I love the ugly me?
Would I try so hard to be so strong, when I know that all I am is weak,
All I am is weak . . .
Would I clench my fist, fall down and scream at all I cannot do?
Or dry my eyes and crawl back to my feet,
And stumble after you.
Would I grin in my embarrassment, and would I laugh when the joke is me?
Could I look you in the eyes still, when my crippled legs are all that I can see,
All that I can see . . .
So take my hands if they won’t give, and take my life so I can lift you.
Take my eyes if they’re on me, please take my heart and make it bleed.
Take all this up to a hill and crucify the king of will
Till all I have runs down my face and I’m a wretch who’s drowning in your grace.

E is doing great. She is in 1st Grade. She is working hard to walk without her walker. She still uses it but not in the house. After years of Doctors, much testing and suggested diagnoses' the doctors settled that E has Spinal Cerebellar Ataxia. The great news is that they cannot figure her out. She defies all odds. So God prevails always. Her confession has always been, "I walk in Jesus name!" and sure enough he answers her prayers a day at a time. ~Amy H.

May we all learn to Stumble after the Lord in our daily struggles...
Whether we battle not feeling smart enough, pretty enough, worthy enough, connected enough, thin enough, thick enough, struggle for meaningful relationships, struggle against physical ailments, imperfections, spiritual weakness, shyness, fear, everyone battles something...

let's stumble together...
