So many conflicts and protests have erupted this year amplifying the truth that still too many people groups are not fully free to live flourishing lives.
There’s still a lot of work to do but if we know anything about history, it is that human beings have come a long way. The pace of change is slow but today, I want us to be thankful for all the many ways the needle has moved on global/national/local scales to ensure we have basic freedoms.
I’m thankful for the freedom to dream and hope, even if my current circumstances are light years away from the future I wish for.
I’m thankful for the freedom to worship God freely and unashamedly. The very words I’m typing right now would be considered a crime in some parts of the world.
I’m thankful for the freedom to be me and not compare myself with others.
I’m thankful for freedom from legalism and self-righteousness.
Most of all, I’m thankful for freedom from SIN through Christ’s perfect work for me.
I’m free; so are you!
Prayer of Thanksgiving
Father, I am thankful for the freedom I enjoy through the sacrifice of your dear Son. Thank You for the freedom to dream and hope for better days despite current strain and discomfort.
