Falling Sky – Crumbling World

Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
Where worlds collide and
days are dark
You may have my number,
you can take my name
But you’ll never have my heart
personal experience:
the enemy, the darkness,
always came when
my world was crumbling and
I was falling apart –
the condemning words,
the judgements for failure,
the taking away of hope by repeating
what I already believed about myself anyway . . .
so it worked to push me deeper into the pit of despair!
Where you go, I go
What you see, I see
I know I’d never be me
Without the security
Of your loving arms
Keeping me from harm
Put your hand in my hand
And we’ll stand
personal experience:
in the darkest pits, somehow the tiniest pinpoint of light would try to pull me back from the edge (I could not see it then, but I can look back and see it was there) – slowly, agonizing moments would overwhelm me and out of “nowhere” I would find myself holding on by my fingernails hanging over a bottomless pit, BUT GOD . . .
the darkness would be ever so slowly pushed back and
it became less able to oppress my spirit
as healing flowed almost imperceptibly
into my wounded heart and
the faithfulness of God
has continued to this day and
into all the nights in between . . .
let the sky fall –
BUT GOD . . .

Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
Let the sky fall
When it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At Skyfall
the song

About Jeanne

a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6. My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)! I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting! Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
