31 days of living free: it is for freedom that i am set free

31 Days of Living Free: Rooted Love for Women who Dream // Many Sparrows Blog // IT is for freedom that I am set free

I’ve missed a couple blogging days this weekend. I’ll be honest with you: the past couple of days have been pretty straight-up, straight-down…bad. In the midst of it, we had a great day of getting to spend a day away at a beautiful cabin with awesome friends (I couldn’t help but take a few photos!), but came back into reality with more heart-dropping news. Life is hard. People we love are hurting and there’s not really a happy, feel-good spin to put on it. I’ve committed to writing for 31 days about living free, but I haven’t had the words.

So, I thought I’d share a song. It’s a favorite of mine from All Sons & Daughters, based on Galatians 5:1: It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.

Today, may we grasp, even if briefly, that we are free from what entangles our hearts. Let’s believe that we are free because we have a hope…an anchor for our souls in the waves of turbulent waters.

You broke my chains of sin and shame
You covered me with grace
You mend my life with Your holy fire
You cover me with grace

You are the hand that reaches out to save

I am set free, I am set free
It is for freedom that I am set free

You broke my chains of sin and shame
You covered me with grace
You mend my life with Your holy fire
You cover me with grace

You are the hand that reaches out to save

And I am set free, I am set free
It is for freedom that I am set free

Yes Lord
We are grateful
For Your grace
And for Your love

Yes Lord
We are grateful
For Your grace
And for Your love

‘Cause You are the hand that reaches out to save

And I am set free
I am set free,
It is for freedom that I am set free

What are you listening to today? How do you find freedom in a season of sadness?
