Freedom Through Faith

Over the last few months, in my walk with God, a sense of freedom has overcome me. For those who know me, you probably also know that I tend to be somewhat of a control freak and also a major planner. I have been freed of my anxiety through my faith. I know that my thoughts are not His thoughts, and no matter how much I try to control, I need to release all control to Him. He knows what is best, I do not. All I can do is remain faithful to Him and trust Him and let everything else fall into place.

He has never promised a trouble free life, but He does offer the strength and determination to get through anything and everything that we face. He also takes those burdens off our shoulders and happily puts them upon His. “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken” Psalm 55:22.

In our family, our future is uncertain. Jesse has a little over a year left before his second enlistment in the Air Force is over. We can get orders at any time to move wherever we are told to. This used to be a huge stress on me. When I take this burden on myself I worry about owning two homes in this economy, that I won’t have a job where we move, for the first time in my life I will be far away from my family and friends, the list goes on and on. I can honestly say I have cast this care upon Him. I am not at all worried about our future, because I trust that He has wonderful plans for our future and they are so much more perfect than anything I could plan or prepare for.

To others, He has so much freedom to offer. He can take away any struggle with addiction, loss of a loved one, emotional and psychological bondage, job loss, marriage problems, and the list goes on and on. It is not weak to cry out to Him, it is strength!

  1. I have to remind myself this every day. It is so much easier letting Him carry the worries of life. Thanks for the reminder.

  2. My husband and I have been really focusing on these truths lately, too. God knows all our needs before we even think to ask for them.

Jesse is active duty Air Force and is originally from southern Minnesota. He has also managed to become a follower of just about every hobby known to man (which drives his wife crazy!).

Henry was born on July 4, 2007. His hobbies include playing with his squeaker toys, barking a little girls, dock jumping, going to the dog park, and being spoiled rotten by his grandparents.
