Lately, I have been thinking so much about being “free.” My idea of “free”, my willingness to be “free”, why I am “free”… There are so many things that can inhibit freedom and so many that can allow it. In some ways, I think that freedom is a choice, it is a mind set and an act. In other ways, I think it is a process, allowing a series of circumstances to occur so that you can experience true and complete freedom.
I love that scripture that says “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed”. John 8:36 I spent quite a few years not being free in my heart, my mind and my soul. It was one of the most tormenting seasons of my life. Just constantly feeling inadequate, afraid and ineligible to be God’s child. I fought for years in prayer for freedom from all guilt, shame and failure. One day every single chain was broken and I never looked back.
I entitled the post “Freedom Fighter” because not only did I have to fight for my spiritual freedom but God did too. He died for my complete wholeness and liberty on the cross. Because, I am but human I feel like I have to keep fighting for that “free” mindset. I often have to remind myself of the scripture stated above and most of all that there is nothing that I could do that would make me more free than I am today. Jesus paid it all and now I need to walk it out.
So what is the definition of freedom?
* the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
* absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic government.
* he state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.
I love the last one. NOT being imprisoned or enslaved. FREEDOM. Such a powerful word with so much meaning in SO many aspect of our lives today. What are your thoughts on freedom and being free? Thank you so much for stopping by the blog.
