“So if the Son sets you free you will be FREE indeed.” John 8:36
We’ve all wanted something more. A bigger picture. An answer to all the questions we have in life. An answer to the deep emptiness we feel in our own souls. There has GOT to be more to life than this. I know I’m not alone in feeling this way.
I know that through their emails, and other sources of communication, my fellow blogger, Ebony, and a few of my other close friends have wondered where I am as I have fled from Facebook. I decided the best way to explain would be through a blog post, since I feel that not only my friends, but strangers who happen upon this blog, or are subscribed to it need to read this too. Growing up into adulthood hasn’t been the easiest thing for me. All throughout my 20’s, I feel like I have faced more demons than any other age group, yet through all of this, I have come to know my God as a loving and faithful God. This year has been a season of praying and literally crying out to God for certain people in my life, and for my life in general, and I know it sounds bad, but I really feel like Satan has used this moment in which I don’t know anything to attack me. The devil has used this moment in my life to make me flee from a world which desperately needs God’s love, and to not be the friend I need to be. There are days when I feel so completely wrapped up in Jesus’ love that nothing can touch me, and there are days when no matter how much I study the Bible and pray I still want a bigger picture. I want answers to what I’ve been praying. As I mentioned in my previous blog post, God gives us that bigger picture, because He gives us the story of redemption. He gives us the story of freedom through His Son, Jesus, as the verse above states. Friends, God also gives us a choice. We can either get to know God, and His life for us which is full of promises and dreams beyond our imagination, or we can choose to stick with this life. I feel like I kind of lost my purpose for writing, especially later this past summer, but I have decided I want to tell you my story of Freedom, and the story of Jesus in my life, and I’m not going to stop writing until He tells me to. I’m about to be 27 in a couple of months, and I might not know everything right now, but I trust in my God to give me the bigger picture. His bigger picture. There’s something I read recently off another blog that I loved, and want to leave you with: “God doesn’t just patch us up, but He HEALS us.” As I wait and pray for His healing and plans in my life, I pray for the one reading this as well. Just remember, He loves you more than anyone ever could, and He has a life full of promises waiting for you no matter who you are, where you’ve been, or what you’ve done. Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to PROSPER you, and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE. Then you will call upon me, and come and PRAY to me, and I will LISTEN to you. You will seek me, and FIND me when you seek me with ALL OF YOUR HEART.”
In Christ’s FREEING Love,
