This was a blog post I wrote for Lisa Jo's Five Minute Friday earlier last year. As I was skimming through my blog; I found it- and thought -what a great reminder for heading into this new year...
This is my year to be stretched-
stretched beyond what I ever thought possible
in my walk with Christ
and in my walk with others.
While being stretched isn't always comfortable;
I am reaping the life living rewards of following His Precious ways.
As I stretch my arms out wide I feel His presence,
and He never fails to give me a timeline glimpse of where I once was,
to where He has brought me to.
I am utterly overwhelmed by His love I can't keep my arms down-
He is more than worthy of praise!
He is my Amazing!
He is my guide- and He loves me-
Love- Him - too!
In the midst of beautiful song and worship I am drawn by Him to feel closer-
I stretch my arms out
HE SETS ME FREE!
