Learning to lean.....

It occurred to me as I looked at my blog today that I haven't blogged since March.  Why?  I guess because I really haven't had anything to say.  My sweet husband and I are finding ourselves in a weird season of life right now....one child grown and married, another child grown and finishing college....no grandchildren yet....Sometimes it feels like we are in a season of "waiting"....waiting to be needed by someone.   Also....waiting for God....we both have ministries tugging at our hearts that we want to be a part of....but we are waiting on God's timing.   We've experienced some heartaches over the past few months....watching people we love experience their own hurt and heartaches.  I was sitting and pondering today (I seem to do that alot lately) and the words to an old hymn popped in my mind.  I am learning more everyday just how small I am and just how big God is....and I am learning more everyday to lean on the One that is all knowing. 

Learning to lean
Learning to lean,
I'm learning to lean on Jesus
Finding more power than I've ever dreamed
I'm learning to lean on Jesus.
(repeat)

Sad broken hearted, at an alter I knelt
I found peace that was so serene
And all that He asks is a child like trust
And a heart that is learning to lean

Learning to lean
Learning to lean,
I'm learning to lean on Jesus
Finding more power than I've ever dreamed
I'm learning to lean on Jesus.
(repeat)

Finding more power than I've ever dreamed
I'm learning to lean on Jesus.
I'm learning to lean on Jesus

I love this song.
I like the"Finding more power than I ever dreamed"
WOW that's power!!!
Clayton can sing this so pretty. I wish he went to church with me. I don't get why he doesn't....but
you are so right. In due seasons we do have to lean on HIS understanding and NOT our own.I find alot of comfort in the thought that I am not in comtrol but I know & trust in who is...
