Set Me Free

One of my all time favorite Casting Crowns songs sets the stage for this dramatic interpretation I found on You Tube. I pray it will encourage you, motivate you, change you...
I love posting about the sweet, pretty side of life, and I will continue to, but I cannot continue to pass by the hurting captives and do nothing...I can't. I've worn many of those same chains and have experienced the freedom that only Jesus Christ can give - I must share that freedom, that hope, however I can...
And friends, there is nothing so sweet, so beautiful as true freedom...
"Rescue those being led away to death; 
hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
If you say, "But we knew nothing about this,"
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it? 
Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?"
Proverbs 24:11-12 
"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor."
Isaiah 61:1-3



  1. Would you believe I've never heard that song before? Such a powerful presentation of the truth of His power and intent toward His children.

  2. What a blessing this was Becky! I love this song and I really enjoyed the interpretation visually. The verses are wonderful in themselves. Thank you for this beautiful post!

    Thank you Becky, that was continue to amaze me....I am so thankful that you are my daughter....God has been really, really good to me (and dad). I love you so much.

  4. Powerful message in that video. None but Jesus. I respect you so much, Becky, for sharing your faith.
    Your creative space is perfect. You and I have some of the same tastes, but I don't have your gift for creativity. I love the stuffed animals and the hand-work vintage items. In fact, I have the very same pansy doily you show in your corner fabric shelving! Take care and God Bless you.


I am deeply appreciative of the time you've taken to leave a comment - thank you!
