It can feel uneasy not knowing what direction you are headed. We twist and turn through decisions in life, always wondering if we made the right choice. We ask ourselves,
“What if I would have chosen differently? Am I where I am supposed to be?”
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just ask those questions and get an answer, or to know where to go before you even get there? It’s not always laid out like that, and we don’t always have a prophet guiding us towards our purpose. In fact, sometimes it can feel like an endless sinking, like time just keeps getting deeper and deeper and all we do is struggle blindly. In the end, the important part is to always push forward and find a way out no matter how much we sink down. Through steady effort, we will find steady ground.
Quicksand Well I’ve been waiting On some big picture This life I’m framing Well, its moving quicker What will be will be Or so they tell me Is that my fate here? Or could I change things? Brother John I’ve got some questions Tell me What am I to become? I need direction Show me I’ve just been on the run This road I’m walking It’s always the same thing And the path less taken I walk through blindly Your heart will guide you Or so they all say If it gets broken Do we lose our way Brother John I want some answers Tell me How can I save myself? Inside this desert Show me Where does the river dwell? And I need a clean slate I need a clean slate Quicksand is where I bathe These days, oh these days
