He carried me out of my confinement
the prison of my fears
my aching alone.
He set me free TO BE FULLY ALIVE
to run like a banshee in the pouring rain
to swing dance with my children
and sing that song so loud
and enjoy the gift of my husband
and laugh till I cry and cry till I laugh.
And He gave me the gift of simple wonder. And hope.
All is not lost.
He rescued me
Because He delighted in me.
He smiles over me. Even if I’m quite the piece of work.
There’s a song of rescue to be sung.
May you know today that He delights in you.
His eyes light up at the very thought of you.
Let Him carry you
Every concern that stresses you and every fear that prevents you
From living in that spacious place.
All is not lost,
