Little did I know that when I picked my One Word, Release, this year, it would come complete with a theme song which was provocatively perfect! As I was listening to Pandora one day, I found myself drawn to an unfamiliar melody. I sauntered over to hit the thumbs up button when to my surprise I noticed the tune playing which had captured my attention was titled Release and was from an album called Porcelain by Helen Jane Long . Listening in stillness, entranced by the beautiful complexity of the music playing, I felt as though I received a gift. Once I began exploring more of Helen’s music I realized that I had a new favorite artist for 2013.
This musical rendition of Release is hauntingly mysterious.
It reminds me of the way God invites each of us into a uniquely beautiful path; just as a musical piece is intricately woven together, His good and perfect will is both complex, and masterfully orchestrated in our lives. We just need to tune our ear to His perfect lead, and follow the melody of His song for us.
I am learning to let go of that which is no longer useful to me on my journey.
I am also learning that sometimes to walk away is grace.
People, Places, Things.
All belong to Him.
I keep nothing for myself – this is the gift and beauty of my journey.
This is the gift that leads to freedom.
And you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
