small enough

Lately I have had some serious moments of quiet reflection and stressing about my life ahead of me. I wanted to share the lyrics to a song that has connected with me so much. I love all of the songs from the artist, Mindy Gledhill. I just feel like I can really relate to the lyrics and my soul connects with them somehow. I have always loved this song, but developed a greater love for it in recent weeks. It just brings me comfort. It is as if it is my own prayer when I listen to it during those moments when I am struggling. It is called "Small Enough."

oh, great God, be small enough to hear me now
there were times when was crying
from the dark of Daniel's den
and i have asked you once or twice
if you would part the sea again
but tonight i do not need a fiery pillar in the sky
just want to know you're gonna hold me if i start to cry
oh, great God, be small enough to hear me now

oh, great God, be close enough to feel you now (oh, great God, be close to me)
there have been moments when i could not
face Goliath on my own
and how could i forget we've marched around
our share of Jerichos
but i will not be setting out a fleece for you tonight
just wanna know that everything will be alright
oh great God, be close enough to feel you now

all praise and all honor be
to the God of ancient mysteries
whose every sign and wonder turn the pages of our history
but tonight my heart is heavy
and i cannot keep from whispering this prayer
"are you there?"
and i know you could leave writing on the wall
thats just for me
or send wisdom while i'm sleeping,
like in Solomon's sweet dreams
but i don't need the strength of Samson
or a chariot in the end
just want to know that you still know how many hairs are on my head
oh great God, (are you small enough?) be small enough to hear me now

And the best thing is that He is small enough to hear and comfort me!
