It would come to me at different times during the week... the reminder that we were going to the concert Friday night. Just remembering brought a smile to my face, and a dollop of hope to my heart. I just knew there would be something just for me at that concert. Something God knew I needed. Something I was having trouble finding on my own. On my own... looking back, perhaps there was the problem right there.
So did I find what I was looking for? On no. It was better than that. He found me in that place, and released whatever it was that I had set in place to block His Light. He reminded me that I need not wait until I get my junk together... or figure out whatever was the cause of my distance was. Mike from Tenth Avenue North spoke such beautiful words to the crowd... the reminder that our Savior is so beautifully backward from the world. Come thirsty. Come dirty. Come broken. Come as you are... just come.
This is not about what you've done, but what's been done for you.
This is not about where you've been, but it where your brokenness leads you to.
This is not about what you feel, But what He felt to forgive you, And what He felt to make you loved.
-You Are More by Tenth Avenue North
And with heart and palms open, raised to the King... my voice sang and my heart felt free. Free...
