Today is Veterans Day, I’m off work because my schedule hasn’t started yet. I appreciate and am thankful for what those who have served our country has provided for me. Freedom to live!! We are blessed to live in a country that is still, for the most part, free. We can work, worship, and interact with others as we see fit. I know that I take the freedom for granted, they ‘just are’, I have grown up here and have just accepted them as part of our due process.
Not only do I take the everyday freedoms for granted, I have come to realize that I also take my freedoms of worship and life in Christ for grated. I was raised sleeping under the pew of a Pentecostal church. The presence of God ‘just is’ in my life. I have always had the opportunity to worship and attend church. I have not always lived my life as I should, I have decisions in my past that I willingly made that I know go against the teachings I grew up under. These decisions have altered my life. What I do know is that God loves me, He is still working on me…I just have to be willing to allow Him to work and change me into what He intended me to be from the start. I altered my life plan, but He still has plans for me. I need to move forward and get beyond what I see in the present, and stop taking things for granted.
Changes are hard to make, walking away is not always easy, and being what we are meant to be is the number one thing in life…just getting our heart, mind, and soul in agreement and on the same page. It is a daily process, and sometimes I still fail. But I am working on being who I am meant to be.
