The Child Within (mixed media detail)

No matter how old I get, I’m just a child within…

running in a race called Life.

No matter how many mistakes I make, I’m just a child within…

trying to grow up, not meaning to hurt anyone.

No matter how many things I do well, I’m just a child within…

trying my best to find my belonging place in the world.

No matter how much happiness I am blessed to know, I’m just a child within…

who loves and wants to be loved.

No matter what heartaches I’ve known, I’m just a child within…

who is sad when love leaves and wants to love again.

No matter how lost I am in the foggy wilderness, I’m just a child within…

who knows Jesus will find me and bring me home.

No matter how many times I fall down, I’m just a child within…

who knows Jesus will pick me up, dust me off, and tell me to

 ”Get back in the race!”

“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:30,31
