Running Free…

Stand against the wind

I’ve always loved the message of freedom and running wild found in the Scriptures, but there’s something also to be said about the trials and disciplines that lead to that life-transforming freedom that we sometimes neglect to mention. A couple quotes from the book:

The transformation of our character is more revolution than reformation. It is forged from battles fought far more than by beliefs held. It emerges out of crisis, not out of classroom.

Our capacity to run free is related to our commitment to stand firm. There is a discipline of the heart that marks the free spirit. All of us long to play the song in our souls, and more of us would do so if it didn’t require endless hours of studying the notes.

    Thanks for the comments. I was scrolling through your blog and saw that you liked Millions. I loved it and I am glad to hear someone else did. I recommended it to several people who watched it and thought it was blah, so it is good to know I am not going crazy.
