Happy Music Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and are well on your way to having a great week.
At the time you are reading this I should be on a plane on my way to Haiti…that is if I have this scheduled to post correctly.
It seems like I am finding myself traveling a whole lot lately to a lot of places I never would have believed I would ever be going to just a few short years ago.
On July 21, 2011 I wrote the words ‘I’m all in’ inside the front cover of my Bible.
Every since that day God has been taking me places I never dreamed I would go. Today its Haiti He’s taking me to but when I say God takes me places I don’t just mean places that I can travel to by car or plane.
I’m talking about places we can travel to by just living in His love.
Those places that He takes you to that are anywhere you happen to be and sometimes you are there without ever even leaving home.
Do you know what I mean?
The places that you feel as if you are soaring and make you feel as if you could touch the sky because your so high.
Places like when you sit out on your porch and notice that there are hundreds of different sounds, plants and animals, and you notice things like how the sky is always changing and how it never ever looks the same way twice.
Sunrises and sunsets that make you want to cry because they are so beautiful.
Places like a broken heart mended and now so full of love it feels as if it could break again but this time it would break in a good way because it is so full of love it feels as if it just may burst any second, so full it could spill over and over and never run out.
Places like when you realize that you have a job you never expected yourself to be doing but you love it so much you actually look forward to going to work.
And the reading…. you always loved to read but you now read a book that you used to think was boring and you now realize it was never a boring book in the first place: And the words … words so precious you hold on to them tightly knowing that the one who wrote them loves you more than you ever dreamed you could ever be loved.
I could go on and on and on and on forever and ever and ever and ever but I will just stop here for now and just say. ‘Living In God’s love is really really a wonderful place to live.” ❤
This week’s Music Monday song is ‘Touch the Sky‘ by Hillsong United. I don’t have a whole lot to say about this song because it pretty much speaks for itself and also for me the words in it are so true of what happened in my life, “I touched the sky when my knees hit the ground”
I hope you love this song as much as I do.
My heart beating, my soul breathing
I found my life when I laid it down
Upward falling, spirit soaring
I touch the sky when my knees hit the ground
Find me here at Your feet again
Everything I am, reaching out, I surrender
Come sweep me up in Your love again
And my soul will dance
On the wings of forever
