FREEDOM!!  Happy 4th of July!

How many ways can it be declared? How many ways can it be discussed?

We live in the United States of America and we are free. We are free. Let that sink in.

We complain about a lot…and I am one of the chiefs, but we are free.

And I mean really free. I live in a country where I can travel about as I wish, wear any type of clothes I want to wear, marry whom I wish, go to college, have a big family or no family, eat what I like…the list goes on and on.

But the freedom that I cherish…most of all…is my freedom in Christ.

Because of Jesus Christ I am truly free. Free from the eternal death that would face me if I He had not died on the cross. Free to live this life, with all the pain and suffering, hurt and humiliation, and anger….but free to do so with the help of the comforter, the Holy Spirit.

I am free, free indeed.

John 8:36
 “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

Enjoy your holiday, and thank HIM for the freedom we have….

Be blessed
IN CHRIST ALONE

Isaiah 55:8-9

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
