faith & freedom

Every life is a story unfolding, waiting to be told. I pray you find encouragement as I share mine with you: Freedom came to me after years of full-on rebellion, extravagant living, and pure desperation. I never thought that one could live in complete freedom. I mean, yes, of course, I know we live in the land of the free. Christ died to set us free, and, well, that freedom is not… FREE.

The truth is that life in this fallen, outside-of-Eden world I was born into teaches me that freedom is the absence of rules and responsibilities. When we launch ourselves in the direction of that definition of freedom, we are looking for that day when we are not obligated to do or be something specific. Freedom, though, when we consider what we are looking for, is not found in what we do, nor in how we define ourselves or our circumstances – Freedom is the life-changing presence of God at work in the life of those who yield themselves to it.
