I am a woman who is greatly impacted by words…words in a poem, a book and especially a song.  Beautiful music can move me, but powerful lyrics etch themselves into my heart.  I am constantly remimded of a song when I hear coversations with friends, a sermon, a question, anything can bring lyrics to mind, and certain songs and lyrics define me better than I could define myself.  Such is the words in this song by Natalie Grant (from her album Relentless).  I do not know if she wrote these words or if they are from another songwriter, (I apologize for not giving correct credit if so) but these are the words that at this present time define me…perhaps giving you a better idea of who I am, what I stand for, where I am coming from, and which direction I am heading…

I have been the wayward child
I have acted out
I have questioned Sovereignty
And had my share of doubt
And though sometimes my prayers feel like
They’re bouncing off the sky
The hand I hold won’t let me go
And is the reason why…

[Chorus:]
I will stumble
I will fall down
But I will not be moved
I will make mistakes
I will face heartache
But I will not be moved
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
I will not be moved

Bitterness has plagued my heart
Many times before
My life has been like broken glass
And I have kept the score
Of all my shattered dreams and though it seemed
That I was far too gone
My brokenness helped me to see
It’s grace I’m standing on

[Chorus]

And the chaos in my life
Has been a badge I’ve worn
Though I have been torn
I will not be moved
