Unbridled Spirit


If you’ve ever traveled to Kentucky, you cannot miss the bright blue sign welcoming you to the state. There is a picture of a horse and the slogan underneath says, “Unbridled Spirit”. Yes, Kentucky is known for the Derby, but I wonder if they want you to look past the horses and see the true freedom the state can bring. As my eyes are being redirected to the blue grass state, I am actually getting excited. I am excited for the the next leg of this race and what doors God is going to open.

I feel like an unbridled spirit. I have reached a place of freedom that I never knew existed or could exist. I am no longer confined by a specific career, where I should live (Nashville/Chicago). My successes are no longer dependent by these things….hallelujah! Some may say that I am going backwards, but I KNOW that I am moving forward. As I sit in Church and listen to the lyrics of Moving Forward, I feel as if I am going to burst out of my skin. I’m not going back, I’m moving ahead with Christ.

I simply cannot express this freedom any other way, but to borrow the lyrics from the artist Free Chapel.

What a moment You have brought me
to such a freedom I have found in You.
You’re the healer Who makes all things new
Yeah yeah
I’m not going back I’m moving ahead
Here to declare to you My past is over in You
All things are made new
Surrendered my life to Christ
I’m moving moving forward
You have risen
With all power in Your hands
You have given me a second chance
Hallelujah hallelujah Yeah, yeah, yeah
You make all things new
Yes You make all things new
And I will follow You Forward
Matthew 6:26 says,”If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God.” If I had a sign to display, it would simply say, “Moving Forward.” I’m not looking back; are you?

Love in Christ,
