He's looking for you

Paul Alan - To Bring You Back
From the album Drive It Home

Are you thirsty
Standing in the rain?
Not sure where you are
Or how you lost your way?
Are you drowning
In some bar outside of town?
Searching for something given not found?
A crowd of people
But totally alone?
At the front door
But worlds away from home?

Light up the nights last regret and
Burn your only safety net
Step to the edge
It's such a long way down

Chorus:
I left the ninety-nine to find the one
And you're the one
I walked a thousand miles
In this desert sun
Only to bring you back
Only to bring you back

Are you tired Of chasing the wind under water?
Do you aspire to breath again?
Are you dying?
Is that the best that you can do?
Cause you can't find your place
In a world that wasn't meant for you?

Chorus:

Hello it's Me
I couldn't sleep
I was just counting sheep
And I'm missing you,
Hello it's Me
I couldn't sleep
I was just counting sheep.

Chorus:

---------------------------

Not being able to sleep because He is counting sheep and one is missing.
And that one is you.
Pretty encouraging.
It's good to feel wanted.

Right on!

He is after us!

He does want us!

We walk away from Him, nibbling on the grass of our own desires and end up God knows where.

Well, God does know where...and He comes to get us!

Great post!

Thanks very much!

It's great to feel wanted, that you matter and not in that "needy" kinda way ;-)
