Fireworks, family, picnics, and parades....it all makes for a great celebration. The 4th of July. Independence Day!
Freedom, sweet freedom. Simple question for you. Are you free?
Oh, I don't mean as in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I mean really free?
We all have areas in our life where we are held captive, don't we? An addiction, a bad habit, a bad relationship, even negative thoughts can hold us captive.
For many years I fought with negative emotions regarding myself. Never feeling smart enough, pretty enough, thin enough, just never enough.
I have come to realize that I will never be enough...not in and of myself that is.
Some of you may know I have a tattoo on my foot with Psalm 73: 25,26 on it.
This decision came after I went through divorce and loneliness and searching for worth.
God broke through and I finally understood...He alone is enough.
Enough to fill every empty hole in my heart.
Enough to heal every emotional wound.
I hope you will give Him your place of captivity and ask Him to free you too.
May this year truly be your Independence Day!
"Whom have I in heaven buy You? There is no one on earth I desire besides You.
My heart and my flesh they fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
