Gosh vacation makes me feel so happy.
Mint green makes me feel so happy.
Family makes me feel so happy & loved.
Coffee definitely makes me feel happy.
Doesn't it feel good to be happy?
To feel loved, happy, and free inside your heart?
You know what I mean?
For such a long time, I didn't know what that freedom inside my heart felt like, even though I still thought I was "happy".
But freedom? It feels different from happy. It is this amazing mix of calmness from such a deep well, and this utter freedom to explore and dream and do and love...to shine for Christ...nothing holding you back inside your heart.
It's utterly stunning to experience.
And it's only from Christ that I can ever say I feel freedom in my heart.
Only, ever, always Jesus.
Words for my heart:
Words for your heart:
"Let your love, God, shape my life
with salvation, exactly as you promised;
Then I'll be able to stand up to mockery
because I trusted your Word.
Don't ever deprive me of truth, not ever-
your commandments are what I depend on.
Oh, I'll guard with my life what you've revealed to me,
guard it now, guard it ever;
and I'll stride freely through wide open spaces
as I look for your truth and wisdom;
Then I'll tell the world what I find,
speak out boldly in public, unembarrassed.
I cherish your commandments-oh, how I love them!-
relishing every fragment of your counsel."
These words, my dear ones.
Let these words soak your spirit in healing and encouragement.
There's not much more I can say, because those words feel so weighty and yet so weightless to my heart tonight.
