Glorious unfolding

I have been typing, and deleting, typing and deleting this post all day- it's the anniversary of my father's death, nothing I wrote seemed to be able to do the memory justice, it's as if something was missing.

I deleted everything I had wrote, and thought, stuff it, I'll just type up the tabs/lyrics of this song I liked to listen to on the radio. Low and behold as I was researching the origins of this Steven Curtis Chapman song, I found that yes- God had a plan right from the start. 

The music video is absolutely stunning. It tells the story of a girl losing her father, and travelling with the clues her dad left her to complete his final letter to her. Wow. It's almost like God was speaking to me through this song. Hold on to every promise God has made for us. It's going to be a glorious unfolding.


There have been a few things on my mind lately. I'm confused about where my future will lead, who I am supposed to keep in my life, and who I should let go of, what I should chase after and what I should leave behind. I am feeling absolutely revitalised by the song....

"This life passes in a blink of an eye, but the story has only begun. So go, taste and see the goodness of God. I will see you in a little while... love Dad". I will see both my heavenly father's soon enough, but for now, I have the world to see...
