Imagine Me

I’ve been listening to a lot of Kirk Franklin lately. By far he is one of the most inspirational Christian artists I have ever listened to. He has been through the battle; he is honest about his struggle and still he keeps his focus on HIM.

When Hero came out I was obsessed with the album. I couldn’t stop feeling myself in each of the songs in some way. Each song brought out weakness that I was choosing to hide from the world; but funny enough all I wanted to do was dance them and express how weak I really was. I ended up choreographing three dances, but the ones that sticks with me the most is “Imagine Me.”

Before my quiet time with the Lord today I decided to put this CD on and just soak. Boy did I soak. In no time, an hour had passed and the floor beneath me was damp from the tear I had been crying before the Father. This song hit a nerve and I so desperately wanted to see myself the way Jesus saw me.

I started to imagine me. Imagine a strong woman with very little insecurities because I knew who I was and how much the Father loved me. I began to realize that I DID have the power to stop the enemy and all the thoughts that constantly controlled my ways of thinking. I saw myself letting go of all the people who have tried to bring me down or rob me of my joy because of their own selfish motives. I saw myself free from judgment, free from my past, free from bitterness, free from so many issues that God is constantly working on in me. I imagined myself so free…

How do you imagine you?

Okay - this post totally made me cry! I love that song! How do I imagine me? Jason Upton has a song called, "Fly..." and a part of the chorus is, "God has given you the air, so, fly..." That's how I imagine me - flying with no restrictions or self-made barriers. Going beyond self/man-made walls. Flying without fear of failure because GOD has given me the air. So, I'm flyin'.

Love this post! :)
