Father, you’ve reminded me through your word that I am free. Free to be who you made me to be..free in knowing that you have forgiven all my past missteps, mishaps, misunderstandings, and misjudgements. You have forgiven all the times I turned away from what you wanted of me. You have forgiven all the times I lied to myself and to others and to you. Father, you have lifted the burden and blown away the dark clouds of doubt. You have shown the light of your Spirit into my soul and captivated my heart. I am free from guilt, free from worry, free from self-incrimination…truly free. I am free to love, free to choose, free to be loved. All because you first loved me. Father, I trust you. I praise you in the name of Jesus, the Christ, and according to your good and perfect will. Amen

 “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5: 1 ESV)
