True Freedom







 
So,
I was out for a walk tonight and listening to some worship music and
this came on my playlist. I am a huge fan of Bethel Music. It is
powerful and it can break you to your very core. As I was listening to
this song, I could feel God speaking to be me...
 
The truth given to me was...
Why do you worry so much?
Why do you fear so much?
Why do you not fully trust?
Why don't you give it all up to me?

See,
we hold on to so much stuff. One of the biggest is our time, talent,
and possessions. We are so afraid that if we do not maintain control
(or a the image of control) then we will lose everything. Guess what,
you can either give it to God or the world will take it, but you control
NOTHING!

God
liberates us when we cast off our meager and pitiful attempts to
control our lives. We must give it ALL TO HIM and then we are no
longer slaves. I am not sure who said it, but there is a famous quote
that says, "Show me your bank statement and show me your calendar, and
I’ll tell you where your true priorities are." If these are not FULLY
committed to Christ, then you are currently serving the god of self and
self control. Give these two items along with your life to Christ and
you will experience freedom! 
 
Allow me to share a few of the lyrics...
I am surrounded
By the arms of the father
I am surrounded
By songs of deliverance
We've been liberated
From our bondage
Were the sons and the daughters
Let us sing our freedom
 
Look at those first few words from the bridge... I AM SURROUNDED BY THE ARMS OF THE FATHER.  He is protecting you, He is freeing you, He is supporting you, HE IS DELIVERING YOU!  Trust Him and be not afraid!  

I hope this blesses you tonight!  

God Bless!

-Michael

Can We Just Be Real?

You will have to forgive me because I am about to get on a soapbox.  Social media has frankly just ruined us.  No, you know I love social media, but the filter that it is run through has ruined us.  We just have to be perfect now.   Want proof?  Let me share with you.  Now, I know this is a joke, but it is the truth as well. 
Why do I use this as an example?  Because let's be honest, no little child, unless pressured by parents would choose the outfit on the left.  They want to be messy, play, be comfortable, and all sorts of things, but we feel so pressured as a society to be perfect for the camera that we have ALL stopped being real.   Everything in life must be Instagram worthy and it is making us ALL depressed.  
LIFE IS MESSY!  LIFE IS NOT PERFECT!   LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS CAMERA WORTHY!
Stop pressuring yourself to make every occasion look perfect.  Stop making yourself feel like every Birthday Party, Baby Reveal, Engagement Photo, and the rest of life's occasions needs to b…
