Open up my heart and let the healer set me free…

So many times, I realize that while I think I have a handle on understanding “the big picture”, I am blown out of the water sometimes by gentle reminders that I don’t neccessarily always “know best”.

Don’t get me wrong, I think for the most part my heart is in the right place, but aside from that I can only do the best I can. In the great scheme of things, I seem to be much better off when I put things in the Lord’s hands rather then rely on the power of one.  It can be real hard for a “Do-er” to sometimes make that realization, and sometimes even though I think I’ve learned that lesson, God has to keep reminding me.

Lately I’ve just really been thinking about things. I realize that things in our life have a tendancy to get mundane and feel overwhelming. Especially when you have difficulties that aren’t able to be remedied. As a people, we commonly get to a state of apathy. A place where we start working on auto-pilot in our lives. This is not a healthy place to be, and yet I have to admit, that many, many times I will find myself sinking into that hole. 

The thing is, that while we can “only do our best”. We need to make sure we are really giving our life our best effort, and not just saying we are. We have only one chance of living this life, so we should live it! My church recently did a session on the theme of “Live like you were dying” and it was very thought provacative.

No do-overs available, just one chance really to make the most out of our lives.  I have “One chance” to really make sure those around me know what they mean to me. “One chance” to impart to my children lessons I feel important. “One chance” to lend help and support to those around me…  If I don’t make it important to make this “One chance” matter, there may not be time later.  


I have a real reason to offer praise right now, that I will have to wait a little bit before I can write about, but I will soon.

I heard this song this morning, and it just made me feel good. So thought I’d share 🙂


I Could Sing Of Your Love Forever

Over the mountains and the sea,
Your river runs with love for me,
and I will open up my heart
and let the Healer set me free.
I’m happy to be in the truth,
and I will daily lift my hands:
for I will always sing of when
Your love came down. [Yeah!]

I could sing of Your love forever,
I could sing of Your love forever,
I could sing of Your love forever,
I could sing of Your love forever. [Repeat]

Oh, I feel like dancing –
it’s foolishness I know;
but, when the world has seen the light,
they will dance with joy,
like we’re dancing now.

One thought on “Open up my heart and let the healer set me free…”

  1. I am kind of astounded as my wife has celiac. I was thinking about a way for her to share her story and her knowledge. (she can really cook, and gluten free is no problem for her) I was thinking about the lyrics of the song i google searched and viola!
