An old journal entry

I have no idea where this came from but today I found a random page on my office floor when I came into work. It was an old journal entry (written on a random sheet of paper... not actually in a journal). So I thought I'd share it with you today:

March 6, 2008
As I was singing "I Lay Me Down" by Darrell Evans, I began to feel a change in my head and body. When I got to the end of the song I was crying out, "AND FREEDOM WILL BE THE SONG OF MY HEART!" I started to feel chills run up and down my spine and the pain that was in my neck disappeared!

Then I saw a vision of Jesus, my Savior, my best friend, begin to rip off layers of what looked like rotten hamburger but it was hard as rock. It was Jesus tearing away the layers of rejection, bitterness, anger and unforgiveness! I kept singing and singing and He kept tearing and tearing!

When I finished, I litterally felt a weight had been lifted from me! Praise God for He is great! Then I felt led to Psalm 32:7 it says, "You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah"

Praise God!!! I then found an old song I wrote called "The Pieces of my Heart" (its about the rejection I've felt) God told me to rip it up! He said, "you don't need that song anymore; FREEDOM is now the song of your heart!" Amen & Amen

Never forget

Wow God is still so good! I love that verse: "...and [He] will surround me with songs of DELIVERANCE." God's freedom is something I find difficult to put into words... it is so amazing! Well I hope this post encouraged you and remember FREEDOM IS THE SONG OF YOUR HEART!

Soli Deo Gloria
