Freedom’s Eve….


Freedom comes in increments and measures, inch by inch and no matter what the freedom means in real terms to you, the only way it will come in entirety is firstly in our mind, and then in our will, it may come in our emotions later on…I have experienced freedom in so many ways in my life but as time goes on I learn that there are more areas within me that need to be freed, and even the areas I am more than aware of are still yet to find that place of true freedom.Life is an untangling of ourselves and with each loosened knot comes a little more freedom and space.I am thankful for God that He has brought me the most freedom into my life, and each day I trust him and follow His ways it comes in increasing measures.I realise that I have quite a few more knots that need loosening and untying, as I become free I find knots that I never even knew were there. The knots often get loosened by the things that I least expect, and at moments I never imagined. It can be very uncomfortable as the loosening happens but once I adjust to it I find that I become more of me than I have ever been before and once I embrace this it strengthens my core and helps me to find my place in the life that God destined and planned for me.

The price of freedom is often huge, sacrifices need to be made, sometimes things need to be surrendered, obstacles may need to be dealt with and mindsets need to be shifted but freedom is priceless and its value is priceless.

Whom the Son sets free will be free indeed!

Just something to think about!

Enriched through Experience….


~Enriched through experience~

Over the last few months I’ve been able to see so clearly the growth that is coming in me.

For so many years feeling somewhat handicapped by life and unable to fully or properly deal with the hard lessons that came along Ive slowly gained enough courage to want to work things out that go wrong or are difficult or unpleasant.

Usually… I lived with some of the things that caused me pain… Fear held me in place… But gradually I learnt that pain was too high a price for me and that the price of confronting things in a gentle but firm way was far better for me…

We’re always taught to communicate and express but I didn’t gave a voice… I really didn’t. Fear had clammed it and when I look back now… It’s taken the last 22 years to even begin to really reclaim it… In SO many areas of life.

I’ve lost things by using my voice, changes have occur but really they were already changed or they needed to change. I just hadn’t want to acknowledge or accept the changes but I’m learning and I’m being strengthened. I am being enriched….

Just something to think about….

~May I have this dance?~


 

Life is a dance and you choose which dances you participate in… What a wonderful picture!

This is a picture that my friend shared with me tonight. Will I choose to dance every time I am invited to participate?

There are some dances we need to learn not to join in with.

There are dances that we are so familiar with that as soon as we hear the music are feet start moving, even before we get up to take part, there is melody that we hum along with, but should we?

There have been many dances in my life and many a dance that I have needed to bow out of…. but the other people sometimes can’t dance unless we participate and because we have done it so many times its not easy.

 

The people we dance with are usually the people we love the most, they are close, and so in the familiarity we participate regardless of whether we really want to or not.I’m not really talking about dancing here of course, I am talking about how we live life.

I’m talking about the idea that are things that we participate in without thought, they are habit…

But is the habit really good for us? Is it right?

People will always ask us to dance or they may just be dancing close by and we want to join in soits not necessarily their fault, but if this is not our dance then we need to learn to step aside or let them know this is not for us.Perhaps just by dancing regularly we will get better at the dance but in the end it still may not be beneficial for us.

I am by NO MEANS a dancer. If someone asks me to do ballroom dancing I would more than likely trip up or injure myself. I am far more happier with the two step… but there are tunes that I have been dancing to that have worn me out.

I will sit out the next dance!
