Day 13: Cost Of Freedom


Oh it is FREE,

but it will COST you.

It will COST you your life.

SURRENDER!

I put up the white flag

because it is the only way

if I want & if you want

REAL PEACE~

"the peace which surpasses all understanding," (Philippians 4:7)

REAL CONTENTMENT~

"whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want” (Philippians 4:12).

REAL LIFE~

"It pays to take life seriously; things work out when you trust in GOD" (Proverbs 16:20)

I SURRENDERED

because in the past

I SURRENDERED

to what felt right

to what looked right

through the eyes of the world

because everyone else was doing it

&

I ended up at a dead end

even though

I was told

THE TRUTH

& people where praying for me.

But

I just laughed

because

I just couldn't see

&

I just didn't know

that there was so much more

beyond

what I could see

&

what I could feel

because everyone else was doing it.

Until

I hit the bottom

because

my way wasn't working

&

because

GOD

wouldn't let me stay where I was

because

HE SO LOVES

you & I

&

your neighbor

&

every single person on the face of the earth

because

HE

created every single person on the face of the earth~

all because

HE

does not want

anyone to perish~

"And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?

Is anything worth more than your soul? " (Mark 8:36-37)

Therefore

HIS SON

cries out

to the broken

to the lost

to the hurting

to the angry

to the bitter

to the abused

to the confused~

"COME TO ME" (Matthew 11).

So simple

because

all it takes

is one little step

to jump into

HIS ARMS

like a little child

&

bring your mess

because

JESUS said, "I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with ME hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever. I have told you this explicitly because even though you have seen ME in action, you don’t really believe ME. Every person the FATHER gives ME eventually comes running to ME. And once that person is with ME, I hold on and don’t let go. I came down from heaven not to follow MY own whim but to accomplish the will of the One who sent ME" (John 6:35-38)

THE FREEDOM OF SURRENDER!

I raise the white flag

to

JESUS

&

it is not coming down

because

I can't go back

to doing things my way

because

"If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed" (John 8:36)

Oh THE FREEDOM OF SURRENDER~

Just

"RUN TO THE FATHER" (listen to the song below)
