Inspiration

restless

When I hear this song I get goosebumps. This is one of those songs for me that I think: Whew, Lordy, I wish I had written this. Not only is the imagery beautiful but it completely describes the constant yearning to be near God and reaching, calling out to experience Him more and more, using the display of longing from His creation on a constant path of movement and seeking, never ceasing in its pursuit, flowing, pushing to keep moving forward …tiny drops of water become streams trickling through the Earth until they reach the oceans. It’s so powerful. I never want to stop desperately seeking Him in my life, adjusting things to meet Him at His will and His design, always in this state of endlessly searching for Him, unsettled and uprooted in my life, walking on the edge of the world to find Him.

I am the sea on a moonless night
Calling falling, slipping tides
I am the leaky, dripping pipes
The endless, aching drops of lights

I am the raindrop falling down
Always longing for the deeper ground
I am the broken, breaking seas
Even my blood finds ways to bleed

Even the rivers ways to run
Even the rain to reach the sun
Even my thirsty streams
Even in my dreams

I am restless
I am restless
I am restless
I’m looking for you
I am restless
I run like the ocean to find your shore
I’m looking for you

I am the thorn stuck in your side
I am the one that you left behind
I am the dried up doubting eyes
Looking for the well that won’t run dry
Running for the other side
The world that I’ve always been denied
Running hard for the infinite
With the tears of saints and hypocrites

Oh, blood of black and white and grey
Oh, death in life and night in day
One by one by one
We let our rivers run

I am restless
I am restless
I’m looking for you
I am restless
I run like the ocean to find your shore
I’m looking for you

I can hear you breathing
I can feel you leading
More than just a feeling

I can feel you reaching
Pushing through the ceiling
Till the final healing
I’m looking for you

Until the sea of glass we meet
At last completed and complete
Where tide and tear and pain subside
And laughter drinks them dry

I’ll be waiting
Anticipating
All that I aim for
What I was made for

With every heartbeat
All of my blood bleeds
Running inside me
I’m looking for you
