Flying Lesson

"A bird is not defined by being grounded but by his ability to fly. Remember this, humans are not defined by their limitations, but by the intentions I [God] have for them; not by what they seem to be, but by everything it means to be created in My image."
[The Shack, William P. Young]


I wanna fly.  Teach me to fly.
I am loved, so loved by You.
Love is flying, and You are love.
Teach me to fly in You.

For so long I limited myself
And Your work in me,
Feeling trapped by this fear.
I've clipped my own wings
And I've grounded myself,
When You've not just created me to fly, but to soar.

Jehovah Rapha, God my Healer
Mend these broken wings.
Your love is so beautifully,
Elegantly simple.
Teach me how,
Teach me to live loved.

I am never lost.
You've always got me close.
 I will always be found right
Where You've intended me to be:
I'm in the very center of Your love and Your purpose in me
I'm in the very center of Your love and Your purpose in me
