Today at church, we had a time of prayer for the communities where we live, as represented by those in attendance.
We made a stand, lifting our prayers and hands before God, offering all we have and all we are to Him.
During that prayer time, I started singing part of a new song over and over, and managed to jot down a few of the lyrics.
I haven’t been stirred to do so for a long long time.
It was like coming home.
Which is aptly so considering the lyrics I was singing!
We stand in the gap
For those He loves around us
Feeling God’s heart
For the ones He’s drawing in
Releasing freedom, freedom
to the captives crying
freedom is beckoning in.
We see freedom, freedom
For the sick and lonely
Freedom is calling them whole
We’re bringing freedom, freedom
For the hurt and broken
Freedom is loving them home
When we sense how God feels about one another, we begin to yearn for His plans to unfold.
Plans not to harm, but to bless.
Plans to heal.
Be made whole.
Plans that give us enduring hope.
A forever home.
May God awaken your gifts to bless those He has placed around you.
It takes one to love one.
One act of kindness.
One word of hope.
One hand of mercy.
One gesture of grace.
One listening to God’s voice.
One obeying their call.
Be the one you were designed to me.
There is only and ever will be only one of you.
Be the one you are to the fullest.
