Time is flying

I just figured out that I only have four and a half months left here in Poland! I am shocked, sad, excited, and annoyed that it is March 27 and it is snowing outside! I know that the next few months will be full of excitement and joy, because I am going to set my sights on heaven and try to bring as many people along as possible. I think with this perspective I will be more able to see God’s hand working through the tough times. I know I will see many things begin to take shape, the battle is tough, but going through it is the only way to be refined. I know I am not the same person I was when I left Seattle, and I know I have far more changing to do, in fact through the rest of my life I never want to stagnate, I want to be always changing, always forming to more like Jesus. I know I will never be just like Jesus, because I have already messed that up by sinning. However, Jesus had mercy on all in the Bible, and I he has mercy on me too. Jesus, make me the man you want me to be.

Trace the shape of my heart
Till it becomes more familiar
To your eyes
I’ve been lost without you
Cold without your love
It’s taken days and nights
To make me realize

Rescue me from hanging on this line
I won’t give up on giving you
The chance to blow my mind
Let the eleventh hour quickly
Pass me by
I’ll find you when I think
I’m out of time

Take the place of my heart
Till I become a stranger to my life
I’ve been down without you
Wrong without your love
In time will I be what
You’re thinking of

Out of time

I’ve been down without you
Cold without your love
In time will I be what
You’re thinking of
