Arms High and Heart Abandoned

April already!  Despite the saying "April showers... May flowers," we actually had a warm and lovely, sun-shining April day today.  What a wondrous Spring Saturday this has turned out to be!

We started off with a lazy Saturday morning.  My boy had a buddy sleep-over here last night and they were shooting hoops outside on the driveway.  I stayed inside... in my cozy pajamas until noon-time!  After lunch, hubby and I head out to the grocery store.  During our short drive, the song The Stand by Michael W. Smith came on... simple words, yet profound.
♪♫ I'll stand... with arms high and heart abandoned.  In awe of the One who gave it all.  I'll stand... my soul, Lord, to You surrendered.  All I am is Yours. ♫♪
I found myself thinking... reflecting {especially during this season leading up to Easter}.  Do I really stand with arms high and heart abandoned in awe of Him who gave me all?  Do I really stand with my soul surrendered, giving Him my all?

Coincidentally, my friend and I were chatting about this very thing last night.  How do we live life fully surrendered to God's ways?

Great soul-searching questions to ponder upon... not only during this Easter season but for always!

This is my prayer... with arms high and heart abandoned!

Unwrapping more of His love in this world.
Act justly.  Love mercy.  Walk humbly with God!
