9.23.19 – Twilight into Dawn

I kind of rediscovered this song last night, and I fell in love with it all over again. ?

As I was listening to this song, I was taken back to times of deep darkness in my life…

I would listen to this song, and I remember desperately trying to cling to the hope, that one day I would be able to experience and understand the “sun rise” in my life –the dawning hope of Christ in me.

“Twilight” by Shaun Groves

Like the sky before the dawn
While the night is holding on
Sun and moon together in the gray
So my soul is shared by two
The worst of me, the best of You
Saint and sinner mingle in my veins
And I pray You’ll end this twilight

Twilight, twilight
I’m torn inside my soul tonight
The dawning Day, the dying night
Oh rid my soul of twilight
Oh rid my soul of twilight

Good I love but evil’s done
Good intentions come undone
Good to know I know the One
Who saves me from myself

Oh Lord, paint my heart a solid hue
The shade of You
Oh Lord, break this dreadful in between
Inside of me
Oh let it be morning

I know the sun is coming up
Oh, the sun is coming up
Yes, the sun is coming up
In me, in me

Maybe you can relate to this “twilight” kind of “in-between” place as I can in my own life. Sometimes I just get so fed up with myself…

“I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.” – Romans 7:15-20

“For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.” – Romans 8:19-21

“Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.” – 1 John 3:2

But now I have hope ☀️

Hope for what Jesus is doing in me. Hope for what He is doing in my life. Hope for where He is taking me in this journey. Bursting forth, right into eternity.

Thank You, Lord ?
