I have no strings...
If you have no strings
Who are you listening to?
"I got no strings to hold me down"
And we know what happened to Pinocchio...
he ended up in the mouth of a whale.
Just doing it his way.
Pinocchio, a wooden puppet,
Now, no strings attached...
He leaves home,
like the prodigal son,
and gets in trouble doing life on his own.
He ends up in the belly of a whale,
just like Jonah.
Just because he doesn't have strings he thinks he is free,
yet he is still wooden.
I think that is like us.
Because of God's grace
He lets us go
He lets us do it our way
Because with God there are no strings attached.
He tells us Who He is and Who we are in Him
He tells us How to live the abundant life
He tells us what to do in order to be filled with peace
He tells us,
but with no strings attached
It is all free
It is quite simple
if we have no strings we can end up in the belly of a whale.
We need strings.
We need connection..
To Him who has the power to transform us from old to new.
BUT as long as we live on this earth we can't do it alone.
We are like puppets,
but not made of wood.
We are a new creation.
We have a brain. we make choices. we have free will.
To activate the strings, we have to be in communion with God.
and we listen to Him
and He directs our paths.
We need strings
Because we can't do it alone.
Just because God has a no strings attached clause,
doesn't mean that I don't want strings.
I need strings.
I need to be attached
Because I need strings to hold me down
To keep me close to Him
So He is close to Me.
Being a puppet is freeing when God is the one holding the strings.
So What strings are holding you down?
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight."
