Spring up O’ Well!!

Filed under: Uncategorized — christyonajourney @ 10:48 pm

I’ve got a river of life flowing out of me Makes the lame to walk and the blind to see, Opens prison doors, sets the captive free. I’ve got a river of life flowing out of me. Chorus: Spring up, O well, within my soul. Spring up, O well, and make me whole Spring up, O well, and give to me That life abundantly (Repeat)

 

I have been a captive for so very long. A captive of lies (my own and the lies of others), a captive of fear, a captive of so many things that weren’t of God.  So recently I have been making deliberate decisions on a daily basis.

Today: I am free

Today: I do NOT have to live in fear

Today: I am not a captive

Today: I live in honesty

 

Spring up o’ well, for my prison doors were thrown open and this captive has been set free.

Try as my (soon to be) ex might, he can not bring me down. He tries, he endeavors to manipulate, he strives to be difficult….it’s only serving to cause further problems for him.  I wish him well, but please Lord: continue to protect me and the children.

 

Amen.

Meeting the standard you set for others.

I have been struggling lately with my expectations of others and how I measure up. If I am to expect another to be correct, right, and diligent: shouldn’t I? Why is it okay for me to bend the rules occasionally when it meets my needs but not okay for someone else. Well it isn’t alright. I need to be correct, right and diligent in my walk with God.
