Once we have experienced the saving actions of our Lord,
once we have been rescued
and brought out to a spacious place,
that sensation is expansive.
Our sense of finally existing with ample security to allow
our heart to grow again, to fill with the power of love again,
to embrace qualities of trust and assurance once again,
the breath we take in is deeper.
The chest widens in hungry inhaling of freedom's air
and Christ's promises.
Our face exudes a light that is only derived from the saving love of God.
Eyes glisten with tears of gratitude and humility.
Lips, once captive to pain, tentatively lift at the corners
releasing the joy of a smile and the long dormant laughter that ultimately escapes.
Praise and prayer slip forth in an unending stream
to honor the Lord God for his abundant mercies!
Put your faith in the Lord.
For there is faithful love with the Lord,
and with Him
is redemption in abundance.
Psalm 130:7 HCSB
