“…And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”
“The truth may hurt but a lie can kill” …Unknown
Everyone that’s close to me knows that I love Lauryn Hill and what she represents for the Kingdom of God! When I started my transitioning journey I fell in love with Lauryn’s MTV Unplugged album. It was like this album was assigned to me to keep me encouraged and motivated as I moved through the process.
The theme of this album is about dealing with reality, living in truth and enjoying the fruits of FREEDOM! Her song titled “War in the Mind” highlights the darkness of bondage and the freedom of TRUTH.
I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His undeserved Mercy and Grace!
“…Get free be who you suppose to be“
My moment of truth is when I was faced with back to back life changing events. Events that included but not limited to the unexpected death of my mother, divorce and foreclosure. I was living in depression, working a dead end job, unhealthy & overweight.
I was so smothered in misery, I looked up one day and realized that I had a drink of alcohol every day for a year. This is when I realized that my life had to change! I needed to make a decision to either stay in the bondage of depression or invest in my spiritual, emotional and physical health. #freedom
According to Genesis 1:27 “we were created in the image of God”. I’m pretty sure God is not depression, anxiety or fear, therefore neither are we! However if we do not know our identity, our true, authentic self we WILL believe a lie.
Goodbye bondage and condemnation & Hello Grace and Mercy!
“But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, you have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life”
Once you are operating in truth & freedom there is no space in your life for guilt, shame or condemnation. Amen to that!
- Are you living in unhappiness, hopelessness, anger or unforgiveness?
- Are you dealing with self-doubt and fear?
- Are you having self-defeating thoughts?
Think about what you are thinking about. Arrest those lies that are holding you back from freedom. Consider investing in you and your relationship with God. Invite Him in to make you over from the inside out so you can go from Past to Purpose and blossom into that beautiful butterfly you were designed to be!
I am praying for you, Love you God Bless you!
