Let Freedom Ring

The blood of Jesus that was viciously shed in our place so that we can have eternal life.

When we ask Jesus to forgive us for our ugly sins, we are washed as white as snow.
When we live life away from having Christ as the center of it, life can feel very defeating. Learning to trust in Jesus and rely on Him for the little and big things in life can be an everyday battle, but worth every minute.

Freedom is giving God areas of our life that we would rather control.
Freedom is letting go and letting God.
Freedom is looking in the mirror and seeing Jesus in you.
Freedom is when the tomb was empty.
Freedom is giving God permission to deal with Satan, our Enemy.

Have a blessed 4th of July.

~Many Blessings~

Happy 4th of July to all of you over in the US.

Isn't it funny how here in Australia we've never really had to fight for our independance, and I would have to say that we are nowhere near as patriotic a people as you guys.

I guess you never really appreciate something unless you had to fight for it.

Just like our freedom in Christ. We become complacent because that is also something we have never had to fight for. We live in a country that is free. We are free to worship without fear of persecution.

hmmmmm....methinks it's time I did some appreciating!
