It’s When You’re Somewhere In Between | Wait & See Day 24

It’s somewhere in between what is real and just a dream.

Have you ever felt like that?  Where you’ve been hoping something you really want to happen will happen now but it hasn’t happened yet?

A dream job.  A dream to have a dating relationship with someone who just wants to be friends.  A dream to get that baby in Haiti in your arms and hold but it feels like it’s taking forever.

But you can’t stand still…you feel like you’ve got to do something.  Now.

How long do you have to wait?  Until tonight, tomorrow, next month or next year?  Forever?  It feels like it should happen now but isn’t, which results in daily pacing the floor in your mind as it races with “what if’s”.

You have this feeling it can be real but all you can do right now is wait and dream it’ll happen.  Other things have to happen first that you can’t control.  Deep down you know that.

That is what’s So. Hard. 

The in between time is filled with the little moments and little (or big) decisions you must make each day.  Even though they may seem minute to you, they play a small part in your bigger dream.  They add up to something in the bigger scheme of things.

When I hear this song by Lighthouse, like I Will Wait, it can become a prayer.  So maybe think of that the next time you hear it.

God,  I feel like I can’t stand still and I honestly feel unsturdy.  I feel like I’m somewhere in between what is real and just a dream.  Would you catch me if I fall out of what I fell in?  Don’t be surprised if I collapse down at Your feet again.  I don’t want to run away from this, because deep down I know it’s your will,  but I know that I just don’t need this stress.

So I surrender it all to You, God.  And I’ll wait here somewhere in between what is real and just a dream.


{If you’d like to listen to the words as you read the lyrics:}

“Somewhere In Between”

I can’t be losing sleep over this, no, I can’t And now I cannot stop pacing Give me a few hours, I’ll have this all sorted out If my mind would just stop racing’Cause I cannot stand still I can’t be this unsturdy This cannot be happeningThis is over my head but underneath my feet ‘Cause by tomorrow morning I’ll have this thing beat And everything will be back to the way that it was I wish that it was just that easy’Cause I’m waiting for tonight Then waiting for tomorrow And I’m somewhere in betweenWhat is real and just a dream… What is real and just a dream… What is real and just a dream…Would you catch me if I fall out of what I fell in Don’t be surprised if I collapse down at your feet again I don’t want to run away from this I know that I just don’t need this’Cause I cannot stand still I can’t be this unsturdy This cannot be happening’Cause I’m waiting for tonight Then waiting for tomorrow And I’m somewhere in between

What is real and just a dream… What is real and just a dream… What is real and just a dream…
