Just an interim cog…
You know that saying - “just a cog in the wheel”?
Just one in a sea of faces.
If my identity is firmly rooted in Christ then I shouldn’t feel this way, but I can’t help feeling meaningless. I’m just another college student. Another job application. Another unpaid Intern. Another friend. Lover. Girl. Another leader. dreamer. Wonderer.
So what makes me unique? Where do I fit. Not just fit. Where do I belong?
I want to feel that I am wanted. Loved. Pursued. That I matter. I want to rest in the fact the if I disappeared someone would notice and stop at nothing to find me. To rescue me from these questions, to save me from normalcy.
I want to stand out and to be loved for exactly who I am. Not just because I am another cog that allows the wheel to role. I want to be someone who makes the wheel brighter. Bolder. Better.
I want to encourage and to make change. To live and to love well.
“What if only my one heart was all you gained from all it cost, well I know you’d still be left with a reason to willingly offer your life. I am not just a man vastly lost in this world. Lost in a sea of faces. Your body is the bread and your blood is the wine, because you traded your life for mine. Just one in a million faces.” - Kutless

Why is it that the great ones are always taken?
“I’m an architect of days that haven’t happened yet. I can’t believe a month is all it’s been. You know my paper heart, the one I fill with pencil marks. I think I might have gone and bid you well. So glad you didn’t see the nervous wreck I used to be. Never thought a girl could be so small. You never look at me like I’m a liability. I bet you never think I’d been at all…but you’ve got a face to call home. Maybe I could stay a while, I’m talkin’ like all of the time. You’ve got a face to call home.”
John Mayer “A Place To Call Home”
