The Hearts Freedom

As a country we celebrate our freedom today. My kids love to go to the parade, and then we always go to the lake and set up our chairs, blanket, cooler, and just hang out for the day. We have friends that come along, family, and it's fun. We always have a certain kind of cookies that we only eat on the 4th of July, my kids call them the firework cookies.  It's usually a warm day, filled with fun memories from past activities, and busy with the current activities of the day. I like it a lot.
This morning as I was thinking about our day and thanking God for freedom, I especially felt drawn to His heart. What if I did not have the freedom to go where I want to go, the freedom of my country?  Still, because God has pursued me so passionately, with an unrelenting swiftness, my heart has freedom wherever I am. Freedom in Him.
I read Psalms 103 this morning. It starts out like this:
"O my soul, bless God, don't forget a single blessing!"
Blessings like His forgiveness
His healing
His redeeming love
His love and mercy, His paradise crown
His goodness, beauty eternal
His renewal
Somehow, God manages to make everything come out right. I have been witness to this. In the midst of trials, fury, heartache, confusion, chaos, agony, loss, and surrender it doesn't always feel good. But, then there is a blessing. A moment of Light where forgiveness, healing, redemption, love, mercy, renewal, and His Crown touches me, and you, with beauty.
Say That Again, my Jesus, and I will continue to bless you with my soul!
