Attached below is a song from Sara Groves: “Painting Pictures of Egypt.”
This blog is read by people on all different stages of their journey with Jesus. So this song will carry different meanings and applications depending on how Holy Spirit dictates to each person. That being said, I think this song will minister to some people as it is about being in between two places and not really feeling at home in either one.
The singer is on a transformative journey but isn’t finished yet, and feels a tug to go back to where she came from, but knowing that that wouldn’t really work.
Take a listen and see if Jesus comforts you through the song 🙂
It ends with an unexpected and beautiful refrain: “If it comes too quick, I may not appreciate it: is that the reason behind all this time and sand? If it comes too quick, I may not recognize it: is that the reason behind all this time and sand?”
