living in liberty

Galatians 5:1,13
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

These verses played over and over again in my mind today......
Reinforcement in my heart and mind to let Christ worry about the issues of life.  Free from the bondage that easily constricts me.........( Prices rising on everything from milk to insurance, people coming and going saying nice things or things that hurt, if my kids are going to be ok, if my husbands cancer will come back......bondage),  when Christ is controlling me I have liberty.....liberty to not worry, liberty to  love no matter what......

The liberty that Jesus Christ gives us is to live a carefree life "care full for nothing", NOT worrying.
We  can trust Him with the biggest issues and the small ones that peck away at our sanity.
Trust......faith.......surrender, brings liberty!
Our God is bigger and stronger and higher and He is enough!

I believe God's vision for Mothers is to love....  Agape Love.  Life giving love that is born from a heart that gives.  She puts her children and others at a high priority.  It doesn't mean she's perfect.  If that were the criteria there would be no examples.  Some people were given  Mothers who had or have this kind of love.  A Mother who waits until everyone else has a full plate before she eats, a Mother who does everything she knows to do to bring us a good life.  As I reflect,  my Mother was far from perfect.....as a matter of fact, I didn't really feel love from her until after my Father died and our first son was born.  But listen, I also realize she gav
