PLACE

Today I am linking up with the women of Five Minute Friday. The idea is simple: Write for five minutes flat on the week’s posted topic. This week’s word is : PLACE

When I read this week/s prompt I immediately thought of this song by Matt Redman

Once Again

Jesus Christ, I think upon your sacrifice
You became nothing, poured out to death
Many times I’ve wondered at your gift of life
And I’m in that place once again
I’m in that place once again. And once again I look upon the cross where you died
I’m humbled by your mercy and I’m broken inside
Once again I thank you
Once again I pour out my life
Pour out our life’s to you. Now you are exalted to the highest place
King of the heavens, where one day I’ll bow
But for now I marvel at your saving grace
And I’m full of praise once again
Full of praise today
I’m full of praise once again. And once again I look upon the cross where you died
I’m humbled by your mercy and I’m broken inside
Once again I thank you
Once again I pour out my life

Yes, I’m in that place once again. Once again weary and tired of doing things in my own strength, once again weary and tired of carrying worries and anxieties with me.

So once again, I come to that place at the foot of the cross, once again humbled and broken. I come to that place where I can lay down my burdens, that place where I can lay down my anxieties, that place where I can find refreshment for my soul, that place where I can find healing balm, that place where my sins are forgiven.

Once again broken and humbled. But in the right place, at the foot of the cross looking to Jesus.

Are you in the right place today? Are you there at the foot of the cross?

  1. Fiona, great place to be! Jason Gray sings a song titled, “Remind Me Who I Am” that pairs well your thoughts today and also resonates with me. Visiting with Five Minute Friday. Going to stay awhile. 🙂
    Have a great week.

  2. I was listening to that song yesterday and it never even crossed my mind in relation to the prompt! It’s always a good place to be – letting go of trying to do it all ourselves and looking to Jesus.
