Set Free

Sometimes, as people, Christians or not, we get ourselves into messes.  We are not sure how we got ourselves there, and then before we know, we are panicking, trying with our own might to get ourselves out of trouble.

The more we struggle, the more we seem to worm our way further into the muck and mire.  It can be many things that get us there: our sin, our insecurities, our self lies, our doubt, our belief that the Enemy is right. 

But, we can ask the Father for help, and He will come running, and in His time and way, He lovingly works to set us free from our own trap and snare.  We can rest knowing that He is coming.  Our panic changes to relief and trust and waiting and hope.  And then He does His work, and before we know it, we've been set free.

Then we feel as though we can do nothing but bask in our glorious freedom and Praise the One who set us in His glorious Light of freedom.


  1. Jamie - I love this! My cousin did the same thing when she was little and it's such a beautiful illustration. I love the last photo best of all!

  2. Oh. My. Gosh. I love the first photo and that sheepish look. I've seen that look in my children's eyes, felt it in my own heart.

    Great to have you as a member of The High Calling!


I love to receive your thoughts. I am blessed and encouraged by them. May God bless your day today!
