Freedom caught me by surprise

As hardship and uncertainty in disguise

The Holy Spirit gave remembrance and I realized

That not only did God hear me, He healed me too

Making extraordinary use of everything I went through

Noticing how my prayers shifted from “Lord remove”

To, “Father, if it pleases you, give me wisdom and soothe

Me in my brokenness as I cry, pray, and grow

Help my unbelief so I’ll hasten to know

That even in this wilderness You are He

Who wondrously meets and satisfies every need”

Before I knew what happened, I was swept off my feet

Overwhelmed with Your presence & tenderness, I weep

As I lament over what I allowed to rule in Your place

Before I knew it, I began cleaning my space

For the Master, the crevices of my heart lay bare

I am smitten, forever grateful, unbound without a care
