I've always admired people who were comfortable in their own skin. Who just seemed relaxed, unhurried, not trying to overly impress.
I'm not sure all the reasons why, maybe from school, trying to get a good grade, or being third in the birth order out of four, (you know the one no one notices) but, I found myself too often striving to meet the expectations of others.
I think of Jesus' words, "You will know the Truth and the truth will set you free."
I believe only God's word can free us from guilt,
pressure to please,
anxiety, worry, resentment,
all the things that keep us from living a joyful, purposed filled life.
It is God word that teaches us the truth about who we are and how we're to live. A life built on God's word helps us avoid many of the heartaches that we "feel" we are captive to.
So let's find freedom in and through in God's word.
Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.
Words of life.
