Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
Free to define who I am, but not to define who you are.
…Free to reach out to others, but not to make myself responsible for their choices.
…Free to love but not to lean.
…Free to submit, but not to be a doormat.
…Free to talk, but not at the cost of listening.
…Free to believe, but not without asking questions.
…Free to be positive, but not to be a Pollyanna.
…Free to face issues, but not to lose sight of priorities.
…Free to state my beliefs, but not to harbor anger or bitterness when your beliefs are different from mine.
…Free to dream, but not to forget that the dreams come from God.
…Free to fail and make mistakes, but not to abandon my dreams because I’ve failed.
…Free to see living as a privilege, not as a problem.*
Prayer: Lord, please touch my heart with your finger of love. Leave a print that will set me free.
