O come Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel...
This morning in meeting for worship I was thinking about this hymn.
Partly I was wishing that my new meeting had hymnals handy in the benches. I have got to learn the rest of this song by heart this year.
But mostly I was pondering how fully I am captive to the ways of the world.
In my work.
In my family life.
In my finances.
In my approach to holidays.
I pray that the power of God will liberate me, but I know that it will be in God's time, not my time; with God's strength, not my strength.
A few years ago (I can't believe it's been 4 years already!) I wrote another post about this same hymn (with all the lyrics handy): Skills You Can't Put on Your Resume
