Happy Independence Day!

AmericanFlagI am an American. I am born free.

Jesus’ gospel is the gospel of freedom. No more re-defining “freedom” for me! Freedom means you are free.

Fast, on a rough road riding
High, through the mountains climbing
twisting, turning further from my home.
Young, like a new moon rising
Fierce, through the rain and lightning
Wandering out into this great unknown.

And I don’t want no one to cry, but tell em’
If I don’t survive…

I was Born Free!
I was born free
I was born free, Born Free.

Free, like a river raging
Strong, if the wind I’m facing.
Chasing dreams and racing father time.
Deep like the grandest canyon,
Wild like an untamed stallion.
If you can’t see my heart you must be blind.

You can knock me down and watch me bleed
But you can’t keep no chains on me.

I was Born Free!
I was born free
I was born free, Born Free.

And I’m not good at long goodbyes but look down
Deep into my eyes.

I was born free!

Calm facing danger
Lost, like an unknown stranger
Grateful for my time with no regrets.

Close to my destination
Tired, frail and aching
Waiting patiently for the sun to set.

And when its done believe that I will yell it from that mountain highhh!

And I will vow to the shining seas and celebrate God’s Grace on me.

    Happy Independence Day!

    • Free and independent yet fully dependent on God.

      Free and independent yet interdependent with one another.

  2. Mark Mederich

    Martin Luther King, Jr:
    when we allow freedom to ring…from every village and every hamlet…we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children…will be able to join hands and sing…”Free at last! free at last! thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
