nowadays, i have to learn to rest in Him, and to wait.

i am dealing with certain absurdities in my life recently.Things in my imagination and intuition come into conflict with what I see in reality, and emotion and reason culminate into a chaotic mixture,and fiercely contradict each other. On the outside, things are operating smoothly, and life is going fine, with violin teaching and music making to soothe the frayed nerves. I am thankful for music in my life. On one hand, music arouses the emotions contributing to the intensity i would rather not deal with at times. Yet on the other, it offers me a way of solace, a hiding place and an expression of the heart that words cannot express.

In Christ, in music, i will wait in silence, and let Him take care of the beautiful absurdity of it all, till the storms pass by.

"Those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength,
they will soar on wings like eagles,
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40:31
