This Royal Life to me is all about freedom.
What is freedom?
free·dom – noun, the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
We can’t truly enjoy life if we are not walking in freedom.
There are so many areas of our lives where freedom is calling out to us.
Are we truly living free? What does that look like?
Are we at a job we hate?
If so, why?
Do we keep ourselves from speaking because of what people think?
Do we have racing negative thoughts?
Are we dreaming? If not, why? Do our dreams seem impossible?
Are our decisions made based on our love for God and ourselves or are we settling?
Are we truly happy?
Like do we wake up and look around and feel grateful? If not, why?
Is there peace? In ourselves, our relationships?
A few years ago, I had a dream. In that dream, God showed me that I had extended grace and was slow to pulling back, but there was a relationship that I needed to shut the door on for my own peace. This family member was angry and didn’t do anything to help himself and it was negatively affecting my life. I’m talking about my father. His lifestyle and his decisions and his addiction. It wasn’t until recent years that I realized that I had spent most of my life worrying and working around him.
Did he see the children? Did I take them to him? If not, when will I?
Call it what you want, but that’s bondage.
Catering to others and their wants and their problems and their addictions in thoughts and actions is slavery.
