I Will Listen

This is a beautiful song by Twila Paris that relates to me in so many ways right now. I was listening to the CD (titled "Where I Stand") in my room the other day and when this song came on, I was filled with peace from the Lord and I felt as if she could have written this song just for me. Sometimes, it's so hard to choose the narrow road of listening to God's voice above everything else, but I know that His reward comes at the end. I am learning to trust Him to take care of all my dreams and striving to want His dreams for me more than anything else.

This song is so much better to actually hear but these are the lyrics. (There are many other songs on this CD that have been an encouragment to me.)

I Will Listen

Hard as it seems
Standing in dreams
Where is the dreamer now
Wonder if I
Wanted to try
Would I remember how

I don't know the way to go from here
But I know I have made my choice
And this is where I stand
Until He moves me on
And I will listen to His voice

This is the faith
Patience to wait
When there is nothing clear
Nothing to see
Still we believe
Jesus is very near

I can not imagine what will come
But I've already made my choice
And this is where I stand
Until He moves me on
And I will listen to His voice

Could it be that He is only waiting there to see
If I will learn to love the dreams
that He has dreamed for me

Can't imagine what the future holds
But I've already made my choice
And this is where I stand
Until He moves me on
And I will listen to His voice
