Resisting Excuses

I had every excuse in the world available to me this morning and I chose none.  Did I ache this morning, tired muscles and few bruises, it reminds me of my old squad days when after three hours of hard training, then a 125mile trip home on a train sat on my bag on the floor next to the doors of a train.

A week ago I would have rolled over and gone back to sleep, awaiting a second alarm, this morning I got up, got changed and got out.

It was certainly an odd walk with a bit of a limp, but just as good as any walk I’ve done in a while, despite it being another mist filled, overcast morning, the sun did begin to break through eventually.

I actually started this post about 2½ hours ago, but I fell asleep, regardless I feel alive again.

ALIVE by POCKET FULL OF ROCKS
There was a time I was dead inside. 
You’d call my name and I’d try to hide. 
My heart was dark and so full of shame, 
Full of shame. 
But like the dawning of a brand new day 
Your love has chased my shame away. 
How amazing, now to hear You singing over me! 
Over me! 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive, I’m alive! 

Well, every day I find Your mercy new. 
And every moment that I spend with You 
I am overwhelmed by Grace I can’t keep to myself! 
To myself! 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive, I’m alive! 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive, I’m alive! 

Out of my sorrow, out of my night, 
You called me into Glorious Light. 
Where all of the lost, lonely and broken 
Find Your Light. 
Shine Your Light. 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive, I’m alive! Yeah, 
I’m alive, I’m alive, yeah!
