We will be celebrating in like fashion today as I am currently packing our bags with swimwear, sunscreen, and potato chips and making sure that all of us are dressed appropriately in patriotic colors.
This morning, I also celebrate the freedom I have in Jesus - the true and real freedom-giver. Remembering a very special time where a little over two years ago, I walked away from the chains and bondage that had a choke-hold on me for nearly a lifetime.
I partied my ass off. I danced (for the first time) until the music stopped. I will always remember that day, that moment, that night of celebration. It will forever be a moment in time I will always remember where I accepted the freedom that Jesus had for me. And two years later, though it can be often temping to pick up those chains and try them on for size, I am still walking in that same freedom. I am still celebrating.
If the Son has set us free - we are free indeed.
We are free!
May you be walking in the freedom Jesus has for you.
Happy Independence Day!
