Celebrating Life 3/27/14

Today I thought for sure would bring sorrow,
I thought for sure today would see many tears.

Today, I thought perhaps would see pj’s and Kleenex,
I thought for sure I would be defeated.

But the Lord granted me my one wish.

Hope.

Now that I have (un)successfully made a shopping trip to Target, Nordstrom Rack, a successful lunch and a stop at a yummy coffee shop to see my sister in law, I sit on my sofa listening to some of my favorite tunes, reading, worshipping and lounging around surrounded by my furry friends. I can’t help but reflect on the deepest outpouring of Hope.

I can’t help but find myself celebrating life. I have known deep down in my soul that the Lord has purchased me with the perfect and spotless blood of the Lamb. Today was just another reminder that we all were purchased with the blood of the Lamb and written in the palms of his hands, unforgotten.

See I have engraved you in the palms of my hands; 
your walls are ever before me!
Isaiah 49:16

Being called His for all eternity isn’t only exclusive to those who have experienced the dirt and sunshine of the outside world. I celebrate the victory of Eternal Life! How could I not be filled with Hope and renewal knowing my little one(s) is up there praising the Lord forever and ever… Experiencing Eternal Life to the fullest at the feet of Jesus! I can’t help but celebrate at the miracle of life living within me and growing, being knitted together in the depths of my being, what an honor and privilege to be included!

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mothers womb.
Psalm 139:13

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Psalm 139:14

I didn’t weep for what would have or could have been. I wept for what He did for us at the cross. I wept for the Joy and the Hope you can only find in the Lord. I wept for the miracles He has done, I wept for what He has done for me, and what He has walked me through. Sounds weird, but I don’t miss what I thought could have and should have been. I am perfectly content knowing where they are and who is loving on them.

He breaks every chain, he broke all my chains. I am free.

And because this is me to a T, I had to share 🙂 Thank you FaceBook for making this pop up in my news feed!
