My Soul Revival

"Freedom is oxygen for the soul"

And so the adventure begins!  Summer time and the living is easy!  Summer's officially here and with that comes freedom of longer days, outdoor adventures and road trips!  "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all".    Getting out on the open road can be any road, any highway, any dirt track, any trail, or anything at all.  The "open road" is an abstract concept that can be used to describe freedom.  Freedom defined is the quality or state of being free from constraint.  Freedom liberates us and gives us a feeling of independence.  Freedom releases us from those things that are holding us back and opens doors for us to step out in courage.  Maren Morris sings in her song My Church:

I've cussed on a Sunday
I've cheated and I've lied
I've fallen down from grace
A few too many times
But I find holy redemption
When I put this car in drive
Roll the windows down and turn up the dial

Many times we find ourselves bound by events of the past and in binding ourselves up with guilt, shame and anger we find ourselves feeling like we have fallen from God's grace.  Fortunately God doesn't keep score and regardless of how far you believe you have fallen from grace, it only takes one step to get back.  Redemption is not about the survival of our soul, but rather the revival of our soul that was once dead.  2nd Corinthians 12:9

Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that's my church

We must take adventures to find out where we belong.  Plan your next adventure now, the exhilaration of the challenge and the triumph of the activity will lead to personal growth.  Can I get a hallelujah and an amen!  Put your "car" in drive and get out on the open road and find your freedom!

When Hank brings the sermon
And Cash leads the choir
It gets my cold coal heart burning
Hotter than a ring of fire
When this wonderful world gets heavy
And I need to find my escape
I just keep the wheels rolling, radio scrolling
Until my sins wash away

 

 

Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures!  Break the rules, find your freedom, live your life!
