I have continued to pray 1 Chronicles 4:10
“Oh, that you would wonderfully bless me and help me in my work; please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all evil and disaster!” And God granted him his request.
When I started this prayer journey 24 days ago, I was thinking my life would change radically. I am committed to praying this prayer for 31 days. After 24 days, my life continues to look the same. I am still too busy “doing stuff”. Just when I establish a balanced routine, something happens to throw my rhythm off.
The world doesn’t look the same. The freedoms I have always depended on are being threatened.
The roles of parent and child are changing. The people I always thought would be there for me, now need me to be there for them.
Since November 11, I have been doing a lot of thinking about freedom. The dictionary defines freedom like this: the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint.
I am free to confine myself to whatever gives my life meaning and purpose.
Leviticus 26:13 Living Bible For I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, so that you would be slaves no longer; I have broken your chains so that you can walk with dignity.
My freedom was bought for a price. I am free to love with a Christlike love. I am blessed to worship my Creator who keeps all of His promises. The world I live in will change. The people in my world will change.
No matter how many events in my life shift, the truths of God’s word will not change. That is the freedom I need to depend on.
