Singing and walking in a freedom is something that we all long for. It is that special thing, that puts a pep in the step, or smile on the face so deep that we know the smile reaches all the way to the depths of our soul. Today, I am walking in that kind of freedom. I have let go of all my own expectations realizing this life ~ wasn't meant to sweat the small stuff, yet that is how I lived every moment of my being. As I have gone about my day to day living the last two days ~ with no expectations at all, God has provided not only the path for me, but so many blessings along the way! I am not talking about the BIG things in life where we expect God to move (which in reality, we take for granted that He will indeed move during those times), but it is in the little things that we trust Him in, is where we can honestly see our faith in action!
But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. Psalm 5:11 NIV
I have indeed found refuge in my Father in Heaven, over anything of this earth that used to bring me pleasure. My relationships are being blessed, my heart is over flowing with a burning desire to simply get closer to God as I can. I have a new found peace, once that I cannot even fathom enough to share the words to do it justice. I have a found a new found sense of purpose ~ one of living that life of gratitude, honor, and sacrifice to God alone and do you know what?! It's enough!! It's more then enough to make me happy from the inside out!
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.Psalm 16:11 NIV
I just wanted to share these thoughts with you as you prepare for worship tomorrow, or perhaps some of you may be in a pit so dark and damp that you think there is no hope! Guess what?! I once thought that too. IN fact just a few weeks ago! God is the answer! Any problem you have, any addiction ~ God's got the key to freedom! PURE freedom!
May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests. Psalm 20:5 NIV
Until next time, May you be blessed beyond measure!
