Big Sur // Salmon Creek.

“It may be that when we no longer know which way to go that we have come to our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.” Wendell Berry

//Olympic Peninsula//

Sometimes collecting thoughts can be more excruciating than pulling teeth, more refining than steel, and sweeter than summer peaches.
So goes the phrase ‘bitter sweet’, I suppose.

"Dying Now"

Sail on, gypsy of my heart
You’ve been hanging around
Been with me from the start
Sail on, sail on silver girl
You’ve been spinning me fast
Like a tilt-a-whirl

I’ve done a lot of living
In this town
I’ve done a lot of flying
My feet on the ground
You can’t build your bridges
After you’ve burned them down
I’ve done a lot of living
But I’m dying now

How long, how long should it take
For you to learn your lessons from all your mistakes?
How long until the well runs dry
Your bucket’s coming up empty
You’re wondering why

You’ve done a lot of living
In this town
You’ve done a lot of flying
Your feet on the ground
You can’t build your bridges
After you burn them down
You’ve done a lot of living
But you’re dying now

Dying now

So long
Everything must go
I can’t leave it behind
If I’ve never really known
So long to “nothing matters now,”
Who knows if I stand a chance?
But I’m trying anyhow

Cause I’ve done a lot of living
In this town
I’ve done a lot of flying
My feet on the ground
You can’t build your bridges
After you burn them down
I’ve done a lot of living
But I’m dying now

New Affairs

It finally feels like life has found it’s new normal, it’s balance, and it’s perpetual swing. Although, this time around it has mighty kick in its step. As if , in some escalated notion, with each new chapter, life has gained even more purpose . Not that life lacked purpose in any way before, but with gained perspective, both doubt and fear seem to fall into the background. I know this has been my common phrase for the past couple weeks, but life is rich! All the while,thriving after humility and self control have been at the forefront of my thoughts and actions. I want to deemed effective and influential, not by my own regard, but transparent in His light- His character.Surrendering every little thing that I hold most dear, and trusting that The Lord with every inhibition and desire has made all the difference. For that alone, I’ll be forever grateful.

This lengthy self-analyzation brings me to the root of faith.

faith
fāTH/
noun
1.
complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

'To open their eyes that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may thus receive forgiveness and release from their sins and a place and portion among those who are consecrated and purified by faith in Me'.
Acts 26: 18


’ Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience.’
