Creating She Walks in Freedom – Here We Go

Well this sprung up out of nowhere. But here I am. And here you are. And praise God He knows how to work with my impulsivity and run with it. ☺ Somewhere among the last better half of a decade, God has shown me that I am not called to follow Christ to save myself (and others out of obligation) from the firey pits of hell. I accepted and claimed that at age 10 or 11 (and I mean what kid wouldn’t want a pass from hell when given those options?) but it never clicked for me mentally. As I said, over the last almost 10 years I have finally begun realizing that Christ offers way more than salvation.

He offers FREEDOM. (John 8:32)

And by freedom I mean – you name it, and He can free you from it kind of freedom. Maybe you don’t think you are in need of freeing from anything because you do whatever you want, but I don’t know about you – but that didn’t go so well for me. I was empty, unsatisfied, quickly irritable, discontented with life situations that seemed to “just happen” and just blah. As we continue digging into my aim for this blog, chances are God will reveal that you are enslaved to things that you had no idea were causing you to feel the way you feel or that you act ways you wish you wouldn’t act or live in a way that doesn’t compare to how you are intended to live. I, for one, have finally realized so many things that I have let control my life without even realizing it. I thought that following Christ would put me in a box with rules, but I am dropped-jaw-amazed at the freedom I have found in Christ in so many strongholds in my life that I never really even knew were holding me hostage until I was FREE. And I am still working on me, or more accurately, God is still working on me. But it is about time I shared some sweet secrets I have learned that are too good not to share with anyone looking for more in life. Our friend Tat who accepted Christ in his college years said it best. He said something like –

“So many people say they will get right with God once they’ve had their fun in life. But no one should want to wait because being a Christian is exciting, joyful and the best thing that ever happened in my life. Why would you want to wait for that?”

And do you know what? It is so true. If you checked into this blog, you are not here by accident. It doesn’t matter where you have come from, what kind of set backs, dysfunctional family or experiences you have had, what you have done, what you are doing or where you are in life, God is good and He promises freedom and a full life that you will not want to miss if you just consider what He offers. Until I learned the true experience of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the freedom and joy it produced and continues to produce in my life, I thought it was boring and confusing. But Jesus came so that we may live life, and live it abundantly (John 10:10).

And my prayer is that you humor me and check back here for this upcoming “series” – if we’ll call it that – to maybe just see if anything hits home and that God do amazing things with my mess of words and raw testimonies of how these truths that I will be writing about have been real in my life. I believe there is power in the Word of God and, if I will follow through with writing, His Word will be powerful and effective and reach the purpose for which it was meant on this blog. It might not be pretty, but it’s going to be real lol.

So I think it will only be most appropriate to start with a general version of my testimony which I will write in the next few days.Friends and family – this blog idea came from my love and desire to connect and share with you – especially the girls in my life ☺. I was not blessed with a sister, and as I watch my beautiful cousins and friends grow up around me, I realize I was actually blessed with many. And I know it may sound odd since I live further from you all than ever, but I treasure you in my life now more than ever, and I want to see the power of Christ do amazing things in your life…and if anything I have to share as I am learning or pondering scripture and its application in my heart and my life can relate to, encourage, or help you, I am more than excited to share even my most embarrassing struggles lol. I will probably be referencing other books/sources I adore along the way so I have created a resource page to check out if you are desiring further reading materials! If you begin following and think it would encourage someone around you – please share this with them as I have faith that God can easily multiply what I intended for a few to reach the eyes and hearts of whoever He sees fit. If you are a friend of a friend or whatever – welcome! I hope this will be beneficial for you too!

Feel free to contact me anytime and we will have fun along the way!

If you are a believer in Christ I am going to ask you to help me in prayer and encouragement. Pray that I will be disciplined to stick with this and see it through. Pray that anything that would get in the way of getting these messages out there be cast aside so that the messages God wants to share happen. Pray that this blog develops a focus and points to the truth in the midst of our daily circumstances. Pray for readers of this blog, that their hearts are changed for better. I would also LOVE your help if you have decided to read along with us and feel you have a testimony to share that correlates with the messages. Feel free to comment or email me. ☺
