Summer of Freedom
July 31, 2019
He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me. ~Psalm 18:19 I pray your summer has been wonderful. I'd love to sit down with you and find out how God brought opportunities for you to practice dependence and rejoicing. As I considered my encouragement for this month, I came across Psalm 18:19. It was sometime right after 4th of July and freedom was on my mind. I started thinking about how greater dependence and greater rejoicing can lead to greater freedom! Yet many of us feel imprisoned. Imprisoned by an overrun schedule that we try to convince ourselves we can manage by controlling everyone and everything. Imprisoned in what feels like a life of drudgery, a missing significance, or a fear of going unnoticed by those around us. The walls feel like they are closing in around us and we have no place to run!
