Then Sings My Soul Saturday - I'm Free


2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Galatians 5:1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

This week as we have toured around Washington DC, I couldn't help but be reminded of freedom over and over again. All of the monuments and memorials that pay tribute to those who died for our freedom as Americans are so moving. However, when I think of the One who died for my freedom above all, it so makes my soul want to sing... and it makes me want dance!


Remember to not let yourselves be shackled again. It is for freedom that He has set us free.

It's here again - my favorite night of the week. It's time for Then Sings My Soul Saturday. (I start late Friday night though, because I'm so excited.)

This was such a happy song. I couldn't sit still in my chair. What a great message, too.

Just want to praise him!

I really like doing this. It is making me slow down, listen to music ALONE and reflect on our great God! Thanks Amy!

Glad you guys are back safe and sound!

You always choose some amazing songs. We sure have a lot of problems in our country, but one thing is for sure we do have our freedom.

OK - I'm using my son's laptop and am dancing - he and his friends think I'm crazy, I think I'm blessed to be FREE!!! :-)

I do love this song and it pumps me up each and everyday day when I'm running my badunkadunk off. Good way to start my morning!!

Thanks for hosting this too - I receive blessings each week because I love the music and stories/testimonites that go along!

I first heard this song at a Beth Moore conference years ago and fell in love with it! I'm so glad to see it being used more often now because they're ain't no better thing than to be set free!!

Kelley at Aroma of Joy said...

Have a great weekend,

Freedom is something many people take for granted these days. Thanks for the reminder.

Stephanie (Ocean Mommy) said...

Makes me wanna dance everytime. :)

Ceci said...

A reminder that I need today. This waiting for baby to arrive have been spiritually trying. On one hand I see the blessing that there has been no need to induce for medical reasons, but on the other hand--I want to see our baby girl! And how that desire how bound me this week. I'll keep dancing and walking...she'll show eventually!

Michelle said...

Great song! Always make me want to dance!

Cheri said...

Love this song!

Christina said...

I haven't heard this one in awhile but I love this song. It makes me want to get up and dance. My 4 year old just started dancing as soon as I started the you tube clip playing.

Glad to hear your trip is so much fun. You are right, freedom is nice, but to have a piece of the ultimate freedom is much, much, nicer.

I can't wait to listen to the other peoples song choices. I love Then Sings My Soul Saturday.

I love the song you chose this week. In fact, I was planning on posting it, but you beat me to it. :) That's ok! God showed me another song yesterday that spoke to my heart.

Thanks for doing this. I love it. Blessings,
