Dancing in the Minefields

I'm struggling to write right now. My gifts I'm keeping on paper when I can manage to focus long enough to move my pen. My crisis pales in comparison to what other's in this world face but I'm heartbroken and afraid of what the future holds. My plan is to just be around the Truth. My hope is that it just seeps in. I'm doubting my doubts. I'm doing the next right thing. I'm so grateful that it isn't me holding on to Him but Him holding on to me.

I heard this song for the first time as I was in the car praying for strength. He answers. If we turn down all the noise, we can hear His answer.

Dancing in the Minefields
By Andrew Peterson

I was nineteen, you were twenty-one
The year we got engaged
Everyone said we were much too young
But we did it anyway

We bought our rings for forty each
From a pawn shop down the road
We made our vows and took the leap
Now fifteen years ago

We went dancing in the minefields
We went sailing in the storm
And it was harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for

"I do" are the two most famous last words
The beginning of the end
But to lose your life for another I've heard
Is a good place to begin
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/a/andrew_peterson/dancing_in_the_minefields.html ]
'Cause the only way to find your life
Is to lay your own life down
And I believe it's an easy price
For the life that we have found

And we're dancing in the minefields
We're sailing in the storm
This is harder than we dreamed
But I believe that's what the promise is for

So when I lose my way, find me
When I loose love's chains, bind me
At the end of all my faith, till the end of all my days
When I forget my name, remind me

'Cause we bear the light of the Son of Man
So there's nothing left to fear
So I'll walk with you in the shadowlands
Till the shadows disappear

'Cause he promised not to leave us
And his promises are true
So in the face of all this chaos, baby,
I can dance with yo
