I loved reading through Courtney Defeo's link ups to One Big Truth.
If I've taught anything to high school girls and women in my church the last 8 years, I've tried to always stress the importance of WHO we are in Christ and how just by that relationship, we are FREE.
That simple statement has been difficult for me to grasp myself, if I'm honest. But after years of defeat and depression, I set out to truly believe His word and receive it as Truth.
In a journey to combat fear that has controlled my emotions, my responses, my life, I decided to allow God to peel back the layers and expose where my fear originated from. I found out some tough things. I wasn't only fearful of something happening to my family or my children getting sick, but I was fearful of letting others down, not being accepted and feared other people's opinions.
It's difficult for me to admit that because I have always said I was the total opposite. That was the lies talking.
Through Christ, I have been set free. I know my acceptance and approval only comes from Him.
You have no idea how liberating that is!
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
2 Timothy 1:7
