spacious place

              father sets me free

Job 36:16

“He is wooing you from the jaws of distress to a spacious place free from restriction, to the comfort of your table laden with choice food"


I am reminded of a friend in Swindon who listened to me singing the song ‘I delight in you’ : she  burst to her feet to dance before the Lord , having not done that in years because of judgments and criticisms placed on her about her dancing ( which to all who see her is amazingly gifted )- that day she was brought to a spacious place and out of restrictions spoken over her , and out of the imprisonment of rejection 


From the place of confinement

A cell of restriction

The chains of my prison

And the closed in walls

From the finger pointers 

and rule enforcers

From squeezed in enclosures

And the closers of doors



From thought controllers 

and legalistic minders

From a ‘do this’ ‘not that’ 

And a struggle to break free

From a life of survival

And walking in mud

From a place of distress

Where I find it hard to breathe


You ..have ..brought

 to a.. spacious ..p l a c e

A place to explore

A place to be free

A wide open space in You.. in me

A place to run

With eyes that can see

A glorious land

 of opportunity


And like a child who is free 

I will run like the wind

Like a child I will dance 

Like a child I will sing

Like a child I’ll believe

I will throw of my shackles

Get rid of my clothes

Go flying , go naked , go free

I will fly on the wings of life 

 With You 

In me

Drawing me

Wooing me

Inviting me 

Into You

In me
