“So if the Son frees you, you will truly be free.” (John 8:36)
This hit me like a ton of bricks.
If Jesus sets me free from any burden that I have, then I am actually free.
There are so many things right now that have me in chains tighter than I can imagine. School. The thought of perfection. Work. The thought of success. Just to name a few.
But what if there was more to life than just perfection and success?
What if there was freedom and joy and happiness? Do those things exist? Are they real?
What changes to I have to make to get there? How do I possibly find the room in my life to find joy and happiness?
I clearly have a lot to pray about and think about.
Overarching the thing that I have come to learn is that my life is good. I have so much when so many people have to go without.
Now is the time for me to listen to what He is telling me and unabashedly respond: here I am Lord, I come to do your will.
Will I be able to do it? This is the most important question. I will be reflecting on this for the next few days as we approach holy week, then will be coming back to the foot of the cross to ask for clarity on the way that I should be spending my life.
What is your advice for living your best life? I would love to hear it.
