Live Free!-Part Two.

In last week's post I shared a wee bit about a season in my life which began my pursuit of living in greater spiritual freedom. I choose those words more carefully this week, as I hope I didn't give the impression when I wrote that I'm living free that I never struggle. What I want to make clear is that when I shifted my focus, (with God's help!), from being a victim and blaming other people and outward circumstances for my unhappiness and instead focused on the things in my life that I could change, much greater freedom resulted. I had a request, via Facebook, for some more details about my pursuit of freedom mentioned in last week's post. So this week, I decided to share a part two.

The summer I turned fifty I went to the beach by myself overnight.  I knew there were some things twisted up inside my heart that could only be straightened out with a good long talk with God while I walked by the sea.  My heart was full of unforgiveness and bitterness towards others and about circumstances in my life that I was unhappy about.  I can take you to the exact spot on the beach where God spoke to my heart these words, "Quit focusing on others and circumstances that you can't change but instead change the things you can. Build your life!" With those words came the realization there were plenty of things that I had the power to change.  (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, July 7th at Woman to Woman Ministries, where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)
