Solitary Vision

If to distant lands I scatter
If I sail to farthest seas
Would you find and firm and gather
'Til I only dwell in Thee?

If I flee from greenest pastures
Would you leave to look for me?Forfeit glory to come after
'Til I only dwell in Thee

If my heart has one ambition
If my soul one goal to seek
This my solitary vision
'Til I only dwell in Thee
That I only dwell in Thee'Til I only dwell in Thee

This song by Brooke Fraser truly touches my soul. When I look at my life, at the ambitions I've so foolishly had in the past, I want nothing more in this moment and in my future than to have the solitary vision of dwelling in my precious Jesus. Nothing else matters. There is nothing else worth giving my life and passions for than Him. How wonderful it is indeed to walk in His ways! Who ever said the Christian life is boring and dull had no idea what they were talking about!!! Every single day is an adventure, an unknown course that He can chart and navigate for me with a sure and steady hand. When I gaze on His sweet face I know that no matter what may come, be it joys or sorrows, pleasure or pain, life or death, every step is worth taking with Him. May I ever decrease that He may increase in this life of mine that is truly His and not mine at all.
