Thanking God for Freedom

It's Memorial Day! Today we honor those brave individuals who gave their lives so that we can enjoy freedom. It is said that freedom is not free. Freedom is the result of sacrifice and courage. Freedom is the by product of selflessness and heart. Aside from all this, freedom is ours because of love. Love for others, love for country, and love for humanity. Today we thank the brave for their love and we salute them. Because of them we are blessed to enjoy our lives in freedom.

Our lives in freedom are also attributed to Jesus. He provided us the greatest example of love and sacrifice. He gave his life for our freedom. He paid the ultimate price. His love lead Him to give everything so that we could be free in Christ. His love was so great it swallowed up fear and death. Freedom because of love is far greater than anything. 

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. Romans 8:1-2

On the Verge

Maybe you can explain it. For me it just evades my sense of reason. I can't describe it or even wrap my mind around it. The it is that thing that happens to you when you know you are on the verge of something incredible but you just for the life of you can't seem to cross the crest to bring it to being. It may be a chocolate cake your grandma baked for you when you were a child that you are trying to master or an outfit you have been sewing for the kids. Maybe for you it's more about working that perfect solution or deal at work or having the answer to the most difficult and complex system that needs a solution for a client. Whatever the "it" is and the reason you can't get "it", there it is, right there on the verge of being.

God sees you the same way as you see your on the verge project. You are just about to be the most influential, incredible, amazing human that has ever been able to do the exact specific thing you do but you are not quite there. You could easily be there but first you would have to get out of your own way. You would have to see yourself just as Jesus sees you. Really, do you have any clue how uniquely beautiful and special you are? No, you don't, but Jesus knows it and God created you to be it.

You are on the verge of the most rewarding, blessed, phenomenal and transforming positive breakthrough in your self that has ever been. Do not hold yourself back from your blessings. Do not doubt, overthink it, worry and well just plain blow it! You are on the verge of greatness and you were designed just for it. Go do it. Let go. Trust God. Be stupendous and after it happens tell me all how wonderfully great your God is to provide you exactly what you have always dreamed. 

For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power. Corinthians 4:20

Walls. They divide and separate. Not all walls are bad. Some walls are necessary to allow for a partition like the walls in your home, school, church or office. Walls serve a purpose and act as a barrier to entry or as a barrier to sound. Barriers can protect, save lives and establish safe parameters. Some barriers are permanent while others are temporary. The worse kind of barriers are the ones that prevent you from reaching your good. They may be barriers to keep you from reaching your highest potential, someone you love or a place you call home. The good news is that barriers can be broken, breached, destroyed and crumbled. Jesus broke forever the barrier separating you and God. That separation no longer exists. Through Christ you have full access to Almighty God. There is no barrier, wall or chasm to overcome. Is this truth something you believe? Do you speak with and spend time with God enjoying the miraculous gift of total access to Him that you are privileged to have? If not, why? What's keeping you from your good in Christ? God loves you and wants to you to share in a close relationship with Him. Don't let barriers of time, your to do list, distractions, and busyness keep you from God.

For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall..Ephesians 2:14
