Day 6: Contradictory No More


Take a moment and read the sign above

Pure Freedom

for this business owner

To do what he wants to do when he wants to

even when he doesn't know what he wants to do

Opened or Closed

I know, but I don't know

I can, but I can't

Maybe or maybe not

But...

can you just tell me if you are going to be there or not?

Hmm...

Well

He just doesn't know.

He means what he says and says what he means

but he really doesn't know.

A contradiction to himself

Living always on the fence

Stuck in the middle.

Pure Freedom?

Hmm.

Never knowing

Never going

Just staying in the same place~

stuck in the middle.

When have you been stuck in the middle and just didn't know how to get off the fence

so you just stayed stuck?

Maybe you are there now~

Knowing but not knowing

You can, but you just can't

Drinking caffeine and decaf at the same time

Stuck in the middle.

But if

I don't know, but I do know

how do I stop being a contradiction to myself?

I will be weary, yet at rest

I will be anxious, yet peaceful

I will be afraid, yet courageous

I will be a sinner, yet forgiven

I will be hopeless, yet hopeful

Because

Jesus is never contradictory

He means what He says and

Says what He means

Come to me all who are weary and burdened, I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.

Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

Take courage it is I, do not be afraid Matthew 14:27"

Go now and leave your life of sin. John 8:11

For nothing will be impossible with God. Luke 1:37

Now that is freedom~

Moving forward with the

One

who takes you off the fence

when you are

stuck in the middle

so that you can cry out

the most contradictory truth~

"I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!" Mark 9:24

Because

If the Son has set you free

you will be

Free

Indeed John 8:36

So

let's

Put Off

Being a contradiction to ourselves

by

Knowing for sure

&

Believing for sure

the

One

who

Says what He means

&

Means what He says

because

He knows what He says

&

He knows what He means

even when

we are

Somewhere in the Middle~
