Saving Grace

I have been listening to this song on the way to a workshop today - by Planetshakers. I love it:

I'm holding on to You
I'm never letting go'
Cause You have saved my soul
And You have made me whole

You took my brokenness
And filled me with Your joy

All I long to do is worship
All I long to do is bring You praise
For nothing compares to you
My Saving Grace

Jesus Saviour
My life belongs to you forever'
Cause you have set my heart on fire
And You have set me free

I especially love the last 2 lines - you have set my heart on fire and have set me free.

My heart is on fire.. and I want it that way. It is the fire that propels, it is the fire that pushes past opposition. It is the fire that fans persistence. It is the fire that won't let go.

I've been set free. Freedom from condemnation. Freedom from prisons that kept me trapped. The most awesome feeling is to be able to say "no" to something I previously felt powerless against. Eg food, temptations in relationships. I am free to say NO because Christ is my power where I am weak. He took my brokenness and replaced it with His joy, His love, His power and a sound mind!

The Holy Spirit is my fire and my freedom!
