FREEDOM

Every passing moment is a gift to us from God..If only we could see things from the eye of the future & look back, we'd believe. We crave for more & what we think we need, when actually where we are at and who we know now are a gift from God already. When we rush into that which is meant for later, we loose out on the beauty and power of NOW. The joy of experiencing timely blessing looses essence & our desires become the entrapment. God offers us freedom. Yet, we choose other wise. We have been taught to follow our hearts but I'd rather follow God's for He knows the plans He has for me; plans to give me a hope and a future.

Know that we are not bound by anything and that the future is ours Know that if we choose the wrong door, there may be no turning back.. no chance to pursue our dreams..maybe no chance to even dream. Even more, know that some decisions cost us everything and that experience doesn't necessarily have to always be our teacher. Learn from the Truth that comes your way through the story of friends who just pass you by..whether through a book, a song, or reality.

However..

it does not mean that we have to live by the norms of man made standards 'cause if we do that, we are setting goals based on others' expectations, not God's. In fact, we find ourselves chasing after someone else's aspirations. After all, there is a God-time for everything and that time line is different for each individual.

Living in the freedom of God means that we are not bound by a time span set by man or culture over our lives. With God it's never too late nor too early. With God's it's perfect and perfectly done. Beautifully put, in the Bible, notice that no two stories or lives are the same. Everyone's life was unique. God limited no one in His perfect will.

If we give in to God's freedom & we'll never find ourselves disappointed. When we walk in His will time nor age binds us. Our story is different.

* There is never a set way as to how & when one has to accomplish things in life except to live in the God-time even if it goes against the norms. There's nothing wrong with standing out as long as you are where God wants you to be.

Our future is limitless when we walk in His will for us today.

Thanks for your comment! It blessed me, sincerely. It's encouraging to know that it extends to people in the Body of Christ I haven't yet come to know! Sometimes we never know how our struggles actually bless others :)

I read everything that comes out of this blog and it always speaks directly to my spirit; thank you for being open to His heart and sharing His thoughts!
