Becoming...

My dear friend Sarah, sent me the sweetest surprise this past week. Not only did the package include a sweet letter FULL of encouraging words, but it also contained two CD's. Sarah titled the CD's, Songs for the Journey. And after listening to a few of the songs, I can't think of a better title.


The first song on one of the CD's is "Becoming" by Naomi Carroll. As soon as I heard the first verse, I realized that God was speaking to me...and He always knows what I need. Here are the words to the first verse...

I am letting go of my ways,

finally letting go after all these years.

And as myself is dying,

Jesus is trying to come through.

God tell me why I'm hurting.

Does this mean that I'm healing?

This painful trip I'm taking, will it be over soon?

Will it be over soon?

I have become, comfortably numb.

But You said it's not what I was, but what I am becoming,

that's how You see me.

Not who I hope to be,

but who I am.

I was afraid to walk,

but now I'm running,

to who I am becoming.

I think I have listened to this song about 10 times already. It just speaks directly to my heart and who I am becoming because of this journey.

You are soooo welcome! I absolutely love that song too. The first time I heard it...like 2 weeks ago b/c her CD just came out...my mom and I were like "Wow". This journey changes us. Like she says...It't not what I was...but what I am becomming! Great, super great song!
Love and Hugs!
