Veils and Earthquakes

"Still looking for the blinding light. Still looking for the reason why.
Still looking for the sun to shine. Take me higher and higher.
All my life I've been living in the darkest night. 
Still looking for the blinding light, to take me higher and higher." 
~Switchfoot

Veils and Earthquakes


Maybe it is time to forget the lost, forget the things that have held me back.
Maybe it is time to lay down the dead skin that has continued to weigh on me.
Maybe it is okay.
Maybe the time has come.

Separating thoughts make for a pleasant apathy.
One where ” I don’t care.” means more than actions.
The problem is this thinking hurts a little with every thought.
And I guess you could just call it laziness.

God are you there?
Can you hear me today, or any day for that matter?
God, do my thoughts and voice breach the veil?
Has mine been torn down like the temples?

Can an earthquake break my world in two?
Will it be a movement that brings together my thoughts and makes me reach higher?
Can the ground ever be shaken?
Can I believe enough to doubt my doubts away?

Have I taken things to slow my Lord?
Have I stopped moving fast because I’m scared of the results?
Or maybe I have moved too fast.
Did I burn out on God?

I am not sure that’s possible, but the questioning remains.
When the heart is broken, and you feel so far away.
But then my head clears and I remember that I am being selfish.
And I know that His power is love, and that love doesn’t take sin as an answer.

Maybe it is time to forget the lost, forget the things that have held me back.
Maybe it is time to lay down the dead skin that has continued to weigh on me.
Maybe it is okay.
Maybe the time has come.

Maybe the time has come for me to place it at the feet of the one who never fails me.
Even if at times you feel so far away.
Thank God that day isn’t today.
