Whenever I consider our nation’s freedom and the men and women who sacrificially served to ensure liberty for you and I, my thoughts immediately jump to the freedom we have in Christ. If I were to daily reflect on all this entails, I’m certain I’d never reach the depths of this gift. And while I’m super thankful for the precious promise of heaven, where sin and pain will no longer exist, there’s also much I’m celebrating today. I'm rejoicing in the girl that's dead and gone. Click To Tweet The woman once so enslaved to fear, her defense mechanisms rose up much quicker than her love. The woman who once got drunk on Friday, Saturday, and maybe Sunday, too. Who nearly fought her way to divorce. The woman who could’ve––who would’ve––created a ripple effect of hurt and dysfunction, but didn’t.
The woman, who thanks to Christ, began taking firm and steady steps toward healing, relational health, courage and confidence, and impact.
You see, when God calls you and I to freedom, this gift isn't meant for us alone. Click To TweetHe loves us and wants to see us free, absolutely! But He also knows all the lives we’ll touch, the culture we’ll change, once we fully live and then embrace His freedom mission. Like 1 Peter 2:9 states, “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”You and I are chosen, royalty, God's special possession.

Okay. I have to stop there.
God’s special possession.
Why? So that we might declare the praise of the One who called us out of darkness, out of slavery, and into the freedom of His marvelous light.
You and I were created to proclaim––through our words, our lives, and our giving.
This Giving Tuesday, will you partner with us in this freedom call? Will you help us reach and encourage even more women for Christ? Your donation will be matched up to $500!
Together we can change families, neighborhoods, communities, and our culture for the better. Because life is far too short for any of us to live enslaved.
