Freedom is not the destination but ability to make the journey. If
Satan had his way we would be bound all our lives unable to venture
But when we gave our lives to Christ he gave us a
passport that enabled us to go anywhere we wanted. He doesn’t keep us
locked up for fear that we make mistakes. He opens the door and pushes
us out. Sure we’ll mess up and get hurt. But we also have the freedom
to come running back to him for healing.
Freedom is about the lessons we learn on the journey. Freedom is
progressive. It doesn’t happen in an instant. I wish it did. We grow
in it. Just as we grow in love and faith we grow in freedom.
It’s not about arriving somewhere. It’s about going somewhere.
By going there I’m free.
I came across this delightful website yesterday by the artist Kelly Rae Roberts. I spent hours looking through the pictures and this was one of my favourites.
Beauty and truth all combined…go on, treat yourself and have a look….
I’m not afraid or ashamed to sing my desert song.
I’m the only one who’s qualified to sing it.
As I sing my song others will be released to sing theirs.
A choir will be raised up that will sing a song of freedom.
In the middle of the desert a song will come forth that will
bring freedom and victory and set ambushes against the enemy.
The thing that the enemy wants me to hide in the dark
Is the very thing that God will use and shine forth
To prove to everyone
That good comes out of bad
That order comes out of chaos
That wholeness comes out of brokenness.
Strike up the band!!
This is my song in the desert….
