Day 27 of Chartering the Unknown

The word today is FREE.

I am participating in a 31 day challenge to bloggers everywhere to write for five minutes everyday in October. This challenge was issued by Kate Motaung’s link up. Join me everyday as I chart our progress (in 5 minutes) on the unknown adventure with a known God.


I am free! I am a bond servant to Christ but I am free! I am more free today than I was yesterday. I am free to choose. I am free to live. I am free to believe. I am free to repent. I am free to run and I am free to love. Yes I am free!!

Where is all this excitement coming from? In my free time today, I spend some good quality time with the Father and he brought some freedom to my heart. I am free to forgive. I am free to trust. I am healed and I am free!

I have been dealing with some heart issues and today was the day to deal with it and be free! Being on these uncharted waters, I have been sinking in the spirit of rejection, and it became evident over the past few days when I took some things personal that really should not have bothered me. I took my eyes off Christ which is actually disobedience since He commands us to keep our eyes fixed on Him.

But God loves us so much that He disciplines us when we are not obedient to him, and that discipline frees us to live within some holy perimeters to keep our ships on His course.

He has said in Galatians 5 that it is for freedom that Christ has set us free so why then do I let myself be burdened again by a yoke of slavery?

Be free to see the freedom that obedience brings.
