in a generic sense, i think it is trying to do what is right by the direction of a higher power.
but i also think it can be quite personal.
for me it was being desperate and frightened, then reaching out, begging for help, and then finding direction. then following that direction.
it was me, being totally broken and hopeless, then crying out, then being given something to grasp onto and then finding that that something was actually solid and reliable.
it was discovering a Savior whom i could love, who was so worthy of my love, and then realizing that i only could love Him because He loved me first and numbered the hairs on my head and called me by name.
it was discovering a God who i could trust, a God of compassion and mercy. it was finding peace. it was not being afraid anymore.
