SCOOP ME UP

When I was a small, small child
I was caught on the beach when a storm blew in suddenly
I just remember being scared and lost
The sand was stinging my skin, it was in my eyes, my mouth
I cannot remember if I cried
Suddenly....
A man came out of nowhere and scooped me up
He covered me in a towel
He carried me to safety
Last night I tossed and turned
Life, relationships, things.... felt like sand stinging my heart.
Scoop me up, Lord
Let me hide in You, the safety of You
Like a child
If I can only lock onto Your eyes, they will be my lodestar
They will guide me throughout the storm
Let me sense the steadiness of You
Scoop me up in arms that I know love me
Scoop me up
You are my Rescuer, over & over

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
Deliver me....O Lord, I have fled to you for refuge! Psalm 143:8,9

I have felt His strong arms of safety - more then once. He never fails to rescue me. I love this so much.
