A couple of days ago, I wrote about living with abandon and what that means for me in Surrender and an Apology. Living with joy and freedom in Christ. Stop all the lid-sitting and let the joy overflow. So… How am I doing with that??
Every time I woke up last night, and again this morning, I had Building 429 singing these two lines in my head…
I am a mess, I am a wrecking ball
I must confess that I still don’t get it all
I love these lines from their song, Press On, because sometimes I don’t get it all… But I’m trying, I’m working on it. I Press On. I’ve spent a couple of days saying “YES” more than often than “no.” Not taking things personally. Letting things go… And that’s really hard for me to do on my own!
Philippians 3:13-14 says this.
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
I know that I will continue to be a mess and a wrecking ball because I’m a human being living in a messy world. But I will press on. I will continue to walk with Jesus every day, to learn all I can, to PRACTICE. I’ve spent a lifetime practicing on a piano bench. I know how to do that.
Life goes on, life goes on
But Your love will prove
All I need, all I need
I will find in You
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
