I was in bondage… Jesus paid my ransom!

When I am restless and undone, you are there to gather the pieces, tear off the chains of bondage and lift me up on your wings. Safety. Full of compassion and love for the broken lost one wandering in the wilderness. Remove the blinders I have put on. Help me walk in your light, run to you. Catch me when I am falling. When my legs won’t carry me to you, You come to me. When I cry out you don’t turn and run away. You draw near. You heal me. A shelter. A stronghold in the storm.

I myself am not worthy of anything but in God’s abundance of love, grace and mercy I have been redeemed. He has called my name and I am His. Adopted as a child of the ruler of all things. A daughter of the one true King. I have no reason to shrink back; to fear. Because of what Jesus has done for me… shedding his blood on a tree, taking my sins upon himself as the ultimate sacrifice, in full obedience to His Father… for me! Not because I am at all worthy, but because of His pure unadulterated love that covers me and makes me look pure in the eyes of the Father so I can live in relationship with Him. If I am to be like him I need to live in relationship with others. Extending the same love, mercy and grace, being real; not fake out of fear. I can let myself be known, not because I have anything to prove but because of what God had done. I am here to worship the king. The creator of all things. The one who causes my heart to beat and keeps the world in its perfect position, rotating at the perfect speed. The one who provides my every need. My guide and constant companion. All glory to God for what He has done, what He will do and most of all, for who He is!

Amen
