Everywhere I look I see blue skies. “Freedom!” they seem to say. The wide open spaces of grace are beckoning me to come. “Explore with me!” says my Lover. “Come see all that I have in store for you and yours. Come enjoy the blue skies of freedom. Run in the green grass, smell the flowers, and feel the wind kiss your cheeks once again. You are free, dear child. You are free.”
When I see the blue skies, I think about Your goodness. I feel the anticipation of not knowing exactly what’s ahead, but knowing I can trust You with my future. Because you’re holding my hand, I know that we’re going to be just fine. I know that no matter what it looks like when we jump off that cliff, we are going to fly. Because Your ways are not our ways. You ways are higher than ours!
Oh, that I would forget the things that are behind and press on toward the my high calling in Christ Jesus! Oh, yes, Lord… I will fly with You! I will fly into the wide open spaces that you have prepared for me. And I will never look back.
I can just taste the freedom. It is tangible, and it smells like blue skies.
It’s Five Minute Friday again! Today’s prompt was the word BLUE. Come and join us at Kate’s place!
Blessings to you, graceful friend.
