Happy Independence Day!!!
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life.
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are downtrodden, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord."
This is the day when we Americans celebrate our country's independence, but today I am celebrating my freedom from those things that had been keeping me in bondage - those strongholds over my life like anger, depression, anxiety, loneliness, fear and low self-esteem. As a result of being sexually assaulted, all of the aforementioned symptoms (as a result of being sexually violated) held me in such bondage that at times I didn't want to live. BUT GOD!!! God healed me and showed me that there is life after the silence! God gave me a will to live and helped me to believe that I am FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made, that I do MATTER and that I am ENOUGH...AND SO ARE YOU!!!
So on today, know that you can be free from any and everything that is holding you down or in bondage. God freed me and can free you as well, if you let Him...will you?

Hope you enjoy it! ~Phynyxx Skyy
