The Path to FREEDOM!

What do I know about freedom? I’m in a wheelchair, and I have a past that SHOULD keep me trapped in feelings of unworthiness and shame. So in all respects, I should be feeling dejected and fearful, thinking that I’m defined by my past, and not worthy of a “happy ending.” It’s ironic really, because physically I have more limitations than ever, but I have never been more free.

Why? Because FREEDOM I assure you, has nothing to do with my physical limitations, or how pain or barrier free my life is, but everything to do with my complete dependency and trust in God. When your trust is placed entirely on Him you have nothing to fear and you are free.

I want to challenge you to see freedom as a state of mind, and a daily commitment. You see your freedom, your joy and your peace has nothing to do with the absence of suffering, pain or conflict, but everything to do with the presence of God in the middle of it all. I’ve learnt that, if I put my hope or trust in people or things that I can lose, I can never be free. My freedom didn’t come because my life was one day void of suffering, or because I made this ONE big decision on my own that set me free. No, it came as a result of making ONE tough choice after another in obedience to my heavenly father.

The following quote, was from my husband in response to an individual who was inquiring about how we were able to walk through infidelity in our marriage and still find happiness. He said…

“In Vahen’s path to freedom, we have been able to look back see the hand of God at work, even through the disillusionment and bitterness. Her spirit has been healed and restored and the chains that the enemy meant to bind her through shame or pride was released through her willingness to be open and transparent.” Vaughan King

These words made my heart burst with love. Yes, we ARE healed and free from the hurts of the past, but hearing those words truly blessed my heart, and it NEVER gets old. When you’ve experience the power of God’s grace in your life as I have, I can’t help but share it. Which is why, this is just a taste of what you’ll be seeing in
book # 2. Which is appropriately titled…

“The Path to FREEDOM, and the GRACE it takes to walk it.”

The Power of Prayer & A Father’s Heart!

Do you find it hard to trust? Maybe wonder if God even hears your prayers? I know we aren’t shocked by the questions we have for God, or how weak we sometimes feel in our request, but what about spending some time sharing stories about the times HE DOES answer? What about sharing stories of miracles and the power of prayer? Would that encourage you today?

If I Had ONLY Known…

I would have put off all the things I had to do.” A very powerful lyric from the Casting Crowns song, Scars In Heaven. 

Hearing this song, in light of hearing the news of my dear friend Dr. Garry E. Milley, who passed away in his sleep this past week, was what inspired me to write this blog for you today. Dr. Milley was my professor, a mentor, and dear friend, and I pray you are encouraged, as I share some golden nuggets from our interview, that I always PLANNED on sharing.
