The Faith of July

I could be a

parade marching

or a flag waving

or a barbecue grilling

but what I really am
                           is FREE because of the Son
                                  (John 8:36)
I could be a

kite flying

a sparkler shining,

fireworks bursting

but what I’m thankful for
                           is the FREE gift
                                 (Romans 5:15,16,18)

I could be a

song singing

a lake jumping

a picnic feasting

but what He did for me
                         is make me FREE
                                 (Romans 6:20,22)

Vacationing in the Northeast (upstate NY)where history surrounds us at every turn. We traveled to Fort Niagara yesterday where one of the battles from the French/Indian War was fought.  Men have been fighting each other for freedom in our country for over 200 years….some things never change. I praise God for freedom from man’s tyranny but more so, freedom from soul tyranny, freedom from sin that so easily entangles us. Praise God for a new day!

    Oh, yes. Praise God for the glorious freedoms we enjoy because we are his–in addition to those we enjoy as Americans. We are incredibly blessed!
