  1. Wow. I’m pretty sure much of this post was written about my heart as well. Desiring freedom. Desiring freedom from self-built walls of perfection… needed approval. THANKFULLY, in the past week or so, God has provided that freedom. And now the process of working back through those years of pain in order to move on into the future finding my wholeness and identity in Christ. Thank you for sharing!

  2. At Bible study last night they played the old Amy Grant song, “I’m gonna fly” and now I’ve got it stuck in my head again! Keep soaring, girl, and thanks for encouraging us to do the same!

  3. WOW, I totally seen myself in this. 14 years ago, I gave my heart to Jesus….and I know it was true. But only in the past few months, have I really, totally, completely fallen IN LOVE with JESUS! What a difference in my life!!

    Loved this…thank you for sharing!!

  4. Oh the feeling of being free…completely FREE in Him! There’s nothing like it, but I must confess at times I forget. Thank you for the reminder. Life closes in and I find myself drawn back into fear, anxiety…but I am beyond all that because of Him…

  5. Thank you for this! I fly between freedom and the cage.
    Today was a cage day.
    But your words helped lift my wire gate. Hope to fly by you someday while the sun’s setting 🙂

  6. beautifully written…that is the desire of my heart, too, to be more free…thanks for sharing your heart!
