Funny that it started as the day finished,
just like that first day:
me hearing You. me in full want, grasping Your grace ... just even to remember the anniversary. even to know what day it is.
and, yes - the celebrating.

Yesterday marked seven years of history,
of following,
of repeating: running,
and Your grace, incarnate in history,
even still,
running down to me on my knees.
Your glory, bursting to life a heart wantonly wilted,
now willfully surrendered.
You and I celebrate. Each day, together.

It's Your way,
humbled and the cross
of entering the celebration of You - Your grace.

Seven years. Amen. Seven years.
Captive free. Debt cancelled. Amen.

Thanks for joining in the party - this is good stuff! And glad you enjoy the song; I do too! It was discovered on that "birthday" and it evokes truth so simply the relationship... God & His.

there is no greater anniversary, no? i love this esp.: Your glory, bursting to life a heart wantonly wilted,
now willfully surrendered.

utter humility, complete praise. he is given such glory through your life, friend. thank you for this.
