Overcoming Sin

“Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.” -- 1 Timothy 2:26

My dear friend Debbie always says, “You have a choice. You can be
UNcomfortable for a little while, right now and live a life of FREEDOM, or you can choose to be comfortable right now and live a life of bondage and captivity.” TRUE! This statement is so true.

I am in an exciting, scary, freeing, wonderful season right now. The Lord is clearing my plate of responsibilities that were getting in the way of Him. In some areas I’ve had to go back to square one and start all over again. I needed to learn to be a student, to be teachable. He has me letting go of things and people that are keeping me from HIS best. It is humbling AND FREEING at the same time. I absolutely hate feeling vulnerable.

However, one day I will close my eyes here and stand before a HOLY GOD.  I want to hear:

Well Done Precious Daughter!

"Now go up into the hills Mary, bring down timber, and rebuild my house. Then Iwill take pleasure in it and be honored, says the Lord."--- Haggai 1:8
