Okay so the past few blogs I've been writing about freedom or life's freedoms but here is something so dear to my heart. That is why I am a Christian FIRST and then my way in Primerica is my career and my passion for ministry lives in my being. Because I live with truth being taught in and through my life in a time where many think of only self. Boy has it been stretching me in a great way. So here is another thought to the root of my life and where true freedom begins.
"But I will truss in your UNFAILING LOVE; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, for he has been good to me." Psalm 13:5-6
"Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken." Psalm 15
Oh to live true FREEDOM comes only through the Grace that is like an ocean! OH come, drink in the FREEDOM of Christ that sets our (mine and yours) souls FREE! As an American we think we are free but the only ones really and truly free are those whose walk is honestly and fully in JESUS CHRIST. The Lord is a release of the anguish that this world will let you think is freedom, however, to be in a real relationship with the Lord, Jesus Christ is to be able to withstand all things that come your way no matter what comes in the walk of life.
I have drawn upon this since March of 2009 through the present which has upheld me time after time after time. In the good times and the times that seemed like they could be devastating - HE has granted the reality of FREEDOM through the beauty and the storm of life when I think of Him, I AM FREE! And have been since March 18, 1984. I WILL PRAISE THE LORD FOR THE FREEDOM BEGINS HERE - in a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ!
So how about it? Would you like to be a part of that freedom? The invitation's open to you, come. Oh yeah and don't forget about "today's bible reading"
"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possible dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us!" Romans 5:6-8
