At this time in my life, as you’ve noticed lots of songs in addition to prayer help me deal with what I’m going through. Nicole Nordeman’s song “Small Enough” has been with me such a long time and never fails to pull me out of dark sad places in my heart. I hope it helps some of you who are going through the same thing, as some of you have told me. It shares how God, as big as He is, makes Himself small enough for each of us, if He has to be.
Oh, Great God, be small enough to hear me now.
There were times when I was crying from the dark of Daniel’s den;
And I have asked you once or twice if You would part the sea again.
But tonight I do not need a fiery pillar in the sky.
Just want to know you’re gonna hold me if I start to cry.
Oh great God, be small enough to hear me now.
Oh great God, be close enough to feel You now.
(Oh great God be close to me – (Fernando Ortega)
There have been moments when I could not face Goliath on my own.
And how could I forget we’ve march around our share of Jerichos.
But I will not be setting out a fleece for You tonight.
Just want to know that everything will be alright.
Oh, great God, be close enough to feel You now.
All praise and all the honor be;
To the God of ancient mysteries.
Whose every sign and wonder turn the pages of our history.
But tonight my heart is heavy,
And I cannot keep from whispering this prayer.
Are You there?
And I know You could leave writing on the wall that’s just for me.
Or send wisdom while I’m sleeping, like in Solomon’s sweet dreams.
But I don’t need the strength of Samson or a chariot in the end…
Just Want to know that You still know how many hairs are on my head.
(Are you small enough?) (Fernando Ortega)
Oh, great God, be small enough to hear me now.
