You might think this is another post about all the rain we're getting right now. Well, not exactly - although the rain is very welcome!
Today was our monthly healing service at church. I sometimes wish that I could go up to the kneeling bench for a special prayer of health, although I'm in the choir singing a song that sends a healing message. Today was the wonderful Chris Tomlin mash-up "Amazing Grace/My Chains Are Gone." I always feel wonderful after singing that song.
I'm sure most of you know the words to Amazing Grace. The refrain is a new lyric that fits perfectly with the classic hymn:
My chains are gone, I've been set free,
My God, My Savior has ransomed me,
And like a flood His mercy reigns,
Unending love, Amazing grace.
It's a beautiful song, and it truly captures that feeling of God taking away the "chains" that bind us, and guiding us to a healthy, abundant life. It's one of those songs that reminds me of how much healing I've already experienced over the past 9 months, and how far along on the path to health I truly am!
Whether you're just starting your health journey with SparkPeople or you've been doing it a long time, you have taken the steps you need to get to wellness. It doesn't happen overnight, but it will happen. You have to want it, and you have to be willing to work for it.
Have a wonderful week, my dear SparkFriends!
