Moved

A few weeks ago while I was out for a walk, I listened to some songs by Sara Groves for the first time. I was so moved by her lyrics and music, that as I walked, I cried. Here is the one that has meant a lot to me.

Maybe There's a Loving God

I'm trying to work things out
I'm trying to comprehend
Am I the chance result
Of some great accident

I hear a rhythm call me
The echo of a grand design
I spend each night in the backyard
Staring up at the stars in the sky

I have another meeting today
With my new counselor
My mom will cry and say
I don't know what to do with her

She's so unresponsive
I just cannot break through
She spends all night in the backyard
Staring up at the stars and the moon

They have a chart and a graph
Of my despondency
They want to chart a path
For self-recovery

And want to know what I'm thinking
What motivates my mood
To spend all night in the backyard
Staring up at the stars and the moon

Maybe this was made for me
For lying on my back in the middle of a field
Maybe that's a selfish thought
Or maybe there's a loving God

Maybe I was made this way
To think and to reason and to question and to pray
And I have never prayed a lot
But maybe there's a loving God

Maybe this was made for me
For lying on my back in the middle of a field
Maybe that's a selfish thought
Or maybe there's a loving God

Maybe I was mad this way
To think and to reason and to question and to pray
And I have never prayed a lot
But maybe there's a loving God

And that may be a foolish thought
Or maybe there is a God
And I have never prayed a lot
But maybe there's a loving God

There you have it. An amazing song that reminds me of how tiny I am in the scheme of the universe, but how I am drawn to thoughts of the One who made it all.

That's one of my favourite Sara songs. It was amazing when she sang it in concert. We sould see if she ever comes to Kelowna. You'd love it. By the way, Dustin just bought me the NEW ONE this weekend. I'll have to lend it to you. This is what my word verification is... sllttut ??
