"Then Jacob made a vow, saying, 'If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey I am taking, and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear so that I return safely to my father's house, then YHWH will be my God. And this stone that I have set up as a standing stone will be called Beth El.' "
Sometimes you can't rest in true faith until you have the courage to confront doubt. Sometimes your heart can't believe until your mind is convinced. And sometimes you can't lay hold of truth until you are willing to let go of what is comfortable.
Like Jacob, I was forced to take a journey far from what I thought I knew. And like him, I made a promise. These songs are my standing stone: A memorial to a journey well-taken, and to the faithful God who showed me the way home.
