Independence Day

They fought for our independence. There were lives lost and some very difficult decisions had to be made. Here we are though. We are here and we are free. To me that has more than one meaning. We are free. We are independent. When I think of this day, I can't help but think about God and how He sacrificed His only son Jesus to die so that we can be free. He paid the ultimate price for our freedom, yet some of us are still bound. Some of us are still not independent. We live our lives afraid to live, afraid to be who we were created to be. We depend on the world to tell us who we are, how we should dress, what we should say and what we should do. That is in no way how we are supposed to live. It's time we let go and let God guide us through any and everything that comes our way. It's time that we begin to thank Him for all that He's done and will do. It's time for us to truly have our Independence from bondage, free from sin, free from the world...led by God into the greatness He planned for us.

Let's start now!!!
