So the last few days I have been struggling. Struggling with freedom. God has given us freedom in Him; freedom to eat what we want, freedom to make choices for ourselves, freedom from sin (I like that one). Yesterday was the final day of a 40 day fast and I feel sad. Sad that I now have to make MY own food choices again. I liked dedicating my food choices every day, every meal to HIM. Eating only what I promised Him I would eat. Now I have freedom again. Freedom is great but I am a rule follower. As a rule follower, freedom is hard. Couple that with no self control and I can have problems. If food is there, I eat it. Thank you, Lord for freedom. Help me to make wise choices when it comes to food and to life. Lord, thank you for these past 40 days to connect with you in a different way than I have ever done before.
How about you? Is freedom a blessing ALL the time for you or can it make things difficult because of your flesh?

Today I have been mulling over our great God. He truly is amazing. Every night I pray for my kids that they will know how great it is to have Him as our God. I mean, think about it. He made the world and everything in it. AMAZING! He has no beginning or end! INCOMPREHENSIBLE! He sent His Son to earth to save us, even though we are sinners, HUMBLING! We get to have a personal relationship with Him when we ask Him to be our Savior and Lord. WOW! You amaze me God. Thank you for being my GOD. Help to serve you all my days!
for His glory!
