Freedom! A treasure I am very grateful for. Independence Day is a holiday I value highly. It means much to me. A day to celebrate Freedom. The release from bondage. Standing up against tyranny.
I celebrate the freedoms that have been fought for over and over by our country, the greatest, freest country in the world, that everyone clamors to get into; yet, so many are fighting hard to destroy it and its freedoms, even from within. I honor those in militia and military that have served and given their lives, for a season or literally, to purchase our freedoms, and freedoms for many all over our globe, with their blood.
I celebrate personal freedoms. Freedom to live, to learn, to be all my Maker created me to be, following and clinging to my Savior, the Lover and Redeemer of my Life, my Soul, my All. Living out my purpose and passions.
But above all I celebrate TRUE Freedom! Spiritual freedom that only comes from One Source, in one way–from The Way, The Truth, The Life, The Source Himself, Jesus the Christ.
The problems and sins of the world will be with us as long as this world exists. There will always be evil and injustice in this world. There will always be bondage and tyranny. We can’t escape the physical side of those. They affect us, and this groaning earth, every day. But the day will come when the Maker and Judge, Who sits on His righteous throne, will pronounce and righteously sentence evil, injustice, bondage and tyranny. And they will be no more.
But now, even now, we can be spiritually free of the sin within, that besets every soul born. We can live free on the inside, with a new heart from the One who made us and can make us new–here on earth, and in eternal True Freedom, on the other side of death. An unending life of Joy, Peace, Love! Life with our Loving Father God. Life bought by the sacrificial, atoning death of our Firstborn Brother, Jesus. Because he who the Son sets free is free indeed!
Living Coram Deo,
Jesus has come to set us free and make us whole. But, even when redeemed by Him, and having received that spiritual freedom and wholeness, life on earth can keep us tied up in many ways. Our own sins, the sins of others against us, long term oppression, can all keep us from being all we were created to be. But Jesus is in un-tying business, and working all for good for those who love Him and are called by Him for His purposes.
His means of Liberty are as unique as He has created each of us. Many of us share similar stories of finding that “good in the land of the living”. Many have very different stories. But for all, it is the Journey of Life. For those who belong to our Lord & Savior, it is a Journey that always has the Guide of Life by our side.
This site is a conglomeration of Life–the Life and Passions God has placed within me. A Life that has had many twists and turns, a life now much different than I’d ever thought or hoped for. But, it is the Life and Journey He has for me. And I am living it Freely Whole, pursing the Passions and Purposes He created me for!
Welcome! Come alongside and we’ll journey together.
