Stretched thin am I as faith and fear collide
Cascading plans, as towers, tumble to the waiting ground
Opens up to absorb them
Covers them with dust
All other ground is sinking sand
And I hover, helpless to save
In breath, I reach
Stretched upward like flame pulled higher
I become vapor
Seated on the air
Growing wings that carry me to the heavens
Prayer whispered, measured in golden bowls before Him
Worthy of all my praise
Worthy of all my trust
I gaze at the empty place my plans once stood
Knowing His are better
Knowing tomorrow He’ll open the heavens and restore all that was swallowed by the hungry ground.
Stretched am I as my fear and faith collide
Stronger I am on the other side.
