Set Me Free

When they were still very far off, I spotted them.

The flock of white ibis were headed my way and I wanted to photograph them as they came near.

Graceful and silent, they flew by, the evening sun giving some of their feathers an orange glow.

They were flying free.

When we discover God’s great love and forgiveness, we are offered freedom.

Freedom to fly away from our old way of life.

Freedom to soar without guilt or condemnation.

Are you free today?

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    for his steadfast love endures forever!

 Let Israel say,
    “His steadfast love endures forever.”
 Let the house of Aaron say,
    “His steadfast love endures forever.”
 Let those who fear the Lord say,
    “His steadfast love endures forever.”

 Out of my distress I called on the Lord;
    the Lord answered me and set me free.

—Psalm 118:1-5
