Dry Bones & Broken Laptops

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

I've been quiet.

Do you ever have times in your life when you feel God asking you to take a step back? I do. Do you listen or do you tell God you've got too much going on to stop. Depending, I've done both. Do you ever say no to God and then he does something that makes you take a step back? For me, every single time.

Friends, we can listen to God and obey or we can do it the hard way. This time, for me, the hard way included having my laptop crash. It's been gone for almost two weeks. So I hope that you'll understand and forgive me for taking some time away from this space. You can find me on Instagram and Facebook (links on the right hand side of this page) Follow me there and see what all God is teaching me.

Before I go, I'll leave you with this beautiful song. It says what I really want to say. So instead of trying to work it out here ... I'll just let her sing it for you.

God is working Friends, Oh He is always working. He is faithful to fulfill what He's called you to. For me this week, I have been so thankful for the time spent on my mat wrestling with Him there. He has shown me this week where I'm unwilling to let go of some things. He's shown me some places where I've closed off my heart. He's teaching me how to grown and stretch with Him. How to flow and follow His lead. He's showing me that He's already covered me with His mighty outstretched hand.

It's times like this when I hear Him whisper, "Annie, take up your mat and follow me."

Do you feel Him too? Is He calling you? Where is the Lord asking you to follow Him?

Finding Freedom: July Yoga Playlist

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Oh Friends, this playlist was painful in the process and beautiful in the conception. When I set out to make a playlist for July, I wanted the theme to be freedom. I'm not sure if that's what I've accomplished here, but I can tell you that several of these songs brought me to tears.
"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed." John 8:36
Friend, if you have found freedom in Christ, don't become a slave to anything else. There is such freedom to be had in understanding that we have surrendered our lives to Jesus and therefore never have to be a slave to anything again. Not food, not body image, not money, not wine, not time. We are free. Hold fast to that Friend.
Be Set free: Josh Garrels
Reason: Tal & Acacia
Break Every Chain: Will Reagan
Freedom Road: Amber Hunter
More than Conquerors: Rend Collective
Freedom: Josh Garrels
Alabaster: Rend Collective
Children of the Earth: Josh Garrels
Oceans: Hillsong (Zion Acoustic Sessions)
Vapor: The Liturgists
Oh this last one, Vapor, brought me to my knees Friends. If you don't listen to any of these, please find this one. Beautiful. Holy.
As always, these are my suggestions for the month. I hope that you'll take them and get on your mat. Open your heart and mind before the Lord in worship. If that's not your thing, listen in the car. Whatever you do, I hope that you meet with God in a powerful time of worship and adoration to our King.
We are Free Friend, Free to worship the one who breaks chains.
