welcome back- i've missed you

Hi! I haven't seen you in a while. Welcome back. 




The person staring back at me in the mirror may look the same, but inside, I feel totally different. 
Who am I? I am confident. I am driven. I love the feel of sweat and pain. I can run till I want to vomit. I am joyful. I easily make friends. I am actually good at what I do- I write faster, type faster, and go further than others. I work hard. I play harder. When I lay of my bed at night, I nod off right away because I'm so tired. When I wake up in the morning, I bounce out of bed singing praises. When I eat, I savor the tastes. I take time to ask those I love how their days are- and I listen. I take every opportunity to further his kingdom, build relationships and make networks. 
More and more lately I've felt alive. I've felt like the Karen that I lost is back. I haven't seen glimpses of this Karen for a while.  Please stay for a while longer. 
More and more I am experiencing God - I feel like I keep falling in love with Jesus. It's not just in terms of knowledge for the things that he has done. But the things that he is doing presently and will do for me in the future. He has healed this broken heart. I am living freely because He has set me Free. 
I may not be perfect or a great ambassador for his kingdom, but I am closer than I was yesterday.



Give me rule
I will break them
Show me lines
I will cross them

I need more than
A truth to believe
I need a truth that lives
Moves and breathes

To sweep me off my feet, it's gotta be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance

Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It's like I'm falling, oh
It's like I'm falling in love

Give me words
I'll misuse them
Obligations
I'll misplace them

'Cause all religion
Ever made of me
Was just a sinner
With a stone tied to my feet

It never set me free, it's gotta be

More like falling in love
Than something to believe in
More like losing my heart
Than giving my allegiance

Caught up, called out
Come take a look at me now
It's like I'm falling, oh
It's like I'm falling in

Love, love, love
Deeper and deeper, it was
Love that made me a believer

In more than a name
A faith, a creed
Falling in love with Jesus brought
The change in me
