All is Not Lost (So Dance)


I haven’t gotten a chance to upload pictures from the Castle yet.  Till I do, here’s something from the archives (December 12th of last year.) 

This is for my small group from Saturday night.  I think this is what I was getting at.  (Maybe this will erase any other mental images that may come to mind?  Oh what I will say when I’ve had little to no sleep!  GEEZ!!!!!)

He brought me out into a spacious place;
He rescued me because He delighted in me.
– a song of David (Ps. 18:19)

He carried me out of my confinement
the prison of my fears

my aching alone.

He set me free TO BE FULLY ALIVE

to pursue dreams I never thought possible
to dance with my children
to live for discomfort

and sing that song so loud

to enjoy a thing called marriage
to laugh and weap, not in secret
to touch brokenness and find healing in its scars.

He gave me the gift of simple wonder.  Hope.  Joy. 

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.
He smiles.
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.
Much Love,
