I am feeling freedom today…do you know that weightlessness I mean? The sort that makes your heart feel as if it can fly. The kind that makes you laugh on the inside and cry on the outside because it’s such a sweet relief. I have learned these last few weeks that guilt weighs much but grace is lighter than air.
My lovely friend Heather Steck designed this Set Free necklace for DaySpring about a year ago.
It comes with this beautiful card featuring a message I wrote…
I am set free—
Released from the past
and all that held me captive…
welcoming each day
with my wings spread wide…
Soaring into the future
and all God has for me!
I cried to the LORD,
and He answered
by setting me free.
Psalm 118:5 NIV
When I put those words on paper I had only begun to understand what freedom meant. I was more like the baby robins hopping about my backyard with fluttering wings. Now I feel I know so much more of what it means to have your spirit soar.
To celebrate my newfound freedom I’m giving away one of these necklaces. Just leave a comment by midnight on Thursday.
Sweet Freedom, you were not free at all…Love bought you and will not let you go.
