We just don't get it.
It's not to restrict us,
Make us robots,
Ruin our day.
It's true freedom--
The freedom of children playing safely in the streets,
Harmony in our homes,
Crime and corruption crushed,
Politicians faithfully serving;
All God's creatures sound, safe, and secure.
It's not stoically accepting fate
Or letting others run us.
It's the joy that comes from healthy boundaries
And living in harmony with His beautiful design,
Doing good because it resonates with our deepest family values.
Jesus put it this way in John 14:15:
"If you love me, keep my commandments."
And He commissioned us in Matthew 28:20:
"...teaching them to obey everything I have commanded
STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY
Doing God's will is not imprisoning our desires.
Quite the opposite!
It's setting them in the perfect place and time for joyful expression!
