Word for 2013 - FREEDOM!

The holidays are over - thank goodness!

There's a new year out there, all sparkly and fresh just waiting for us to step into it and begin... what will you begin this year?

I want to live this year in the freedom of Christ. Maybe I'll make that my word for the year. FREEDOM.

Freedom from fear.

Freedom from second guessing myself.

Freedom from the little box I've been living in.

Freedom from guilt.

Freedom to love others as Jesus loves me.

Freedom to speak my heart.

Freedom to try outrageous things.

Freedom to laugh.

Freedom to become whatever is next.

Freedom to try and fail...and try again.

Freedom to live according to God's mandates, not the world's.

Freedom to step out of the rat race and live a life of abundance and fullness.

"If the Son sets you free, you
will be free indeed."  John 8:36

Sometimes I forget that my cell door has been unlocked and not just flung open, but knocked completely off its hinges. It will never be closed again!! I  remain a prisoner - un-free - only because I have yet to walk out of my cell.

This year I'm walking out! Will you join me?

In my dictionary the word "indeed" means "certainly"  or "truly".

I am certainly and truly free. I like the sound of that. What about you? What would you add to the list above? Add it. Write it down. Say it out loud. Then live free in Jesus.

Following the plan,
