Thought to share: the freedom society gives you is a blessing. Value and appreciate it. But, real freedom comes from ME. Freedom internally – inside you. Freedom in your mind – in your thoughts. Freedom to be real. No human can give you that kind of freedom. And the freedom I give you is free. It costs you nothing. No debt is owed. I set you free so that you’d know freedom.

John 8:36 (NLT) So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
Galatians 5:1 (Amp) It was for this freedom that Christ set us free [completely liberating us]; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery [which you once removed].

  1. Kim, I just can’t wrap my head around the fact that He could have left me right where I was. Obvlious to the chains. I was forgiven, my debt was paid and I was heaven bound! Emotionally, I probably looked a lot like the Michelin Man. Completely protected from Abba’s most treasured creation. He could have allowed me to just roll along the narrow road (no pun intended) that guides me to my forever home. You know, Heaven -where I will ultimately KNOW and EXPERIENCE ALL that was accomplished on the cross that day when love conquered the world. But, HIS great love- would not allow it. He continued to pursue me and ever so gently pulled on my heart strings taking me deeper into relationship with Him- answering my heart’s cry to experience the life you were living right in front of us. To passionately know and love Him so intimately. That moment is burned in my ❤️ forever…..(just not the date😕). And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. The knowing is experiencing freedom as He intended it, not just freedom from eternal death but the freedom you so beautifully describe above. Thank you for being real, 😘

    • I think if we could wrap our mind around the great mystery of God’s love then it would no longer be great. The fact that it’s beyond our understanding is what’s so compelling. The fact that it doesn’t make any sense it what’s so amazing. The fact that it’s so unmerited is utterly humbling. And to me, that’s the beauty of the whole thing…..it’s so much bigger than me.
