Live in freedom.
It sounds like such a wonderful, easy and instinctive way to go about life. It sounds like it's already happening in your life until you realize it's not. That's the tricky thing about freedom: we are in bondage and we don't realize that we truly have been set free.
"Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." John 8:32
"So if the Son sets you free, you are free indeed." John 8:36
The Son, Jesus Christ, is our freedom. Listen to me carefully: my desire isn't to fill your mind with a ton of information just so you can know it or just so I can say it. If I write a single word it is because it has purpose. And He truly is my purpose for these writings.
The Son is truth. The truth shall set us free. And if the Son sets us free, we are free indeed.
Free from WHAT?
That is the screeching question that I don't want to ask. What have I truly been set free from?! Because I go through my day and often don't feel free. I feel trapped by the expectations of others and the the pressures to perform. That's what I feel during the day. Where is the freedom in that?
I have been set free from sin - from bondage. And one day I will live forever with my King because He is coming back. Does that sound muddled? Just let the heaviness of that statement truly set in. He is coming BACK!
And when I remember Him I desire to live in freedom. I want to live for my King and no other. That's the real kind of freedom. This freedom is seeping into the deepest parts of my soul and ready to burst with excitement. This freedom is affecting my business because I am free to create images that inspire me and leave a little pitter patter in my heart. This is the beginning of a journey.
