Coffee Break!

You’ve been working hard, and time for a break!

For me, God drops certain songs into my awareness, and this one by Phil Keaggy, Carefree, was the one I received this morning.

Perhaps the song/lyrics may speak to you, as they timelessly do with me.  If not this one, which song is God dropping into your spirit in an effort to replenish, revive and inspire you?  More to come!

Carefree by Phil Keaggy

A great sunny day, jump in the pick-up

And we’ll go to the park, don’t delay.

I know just the place, under the willow tree

The kids they all run and they play for so long,

They get you singing their song,

It’s a bright and joyful melody,

Just kick off your blues, join in, be carefree.

Don’t you know that everything is gonna be alright,

And haven’t you heard the Father never lets you

Out of His sight, no no no no.

A great sunny day, love to be living

And I know there’s just no better way to be in the race,

Than giving up everything I know

That hindered my pace for so long,

You got me singing your song,

There’s a bright and joyful melody,

Just put on my shoes, join in, be carefree.

Don’t you know that everything is gonna be alright,

And haven’t you heard the Father never lets you

Out of His sight, no no no no.

But He gives you room to grow,

And He wants to let you know

That He really cares about you and me.

So be free, go and run your race, don’t be late,

Go and fight the good fight of faith,

And just like a child be carefree.
