At Liberty

I started this painting five years ago in tribute to my Dad. He loved orchids. I have tried and tried to grow them and have never had much luck except to barely keep them alive for a while. I finally finished it this past April.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

I have the free will choice to choose.

Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Every time my anxiety flares, my doubts and fears creep in and I find myself struggling in some way. I find that I am giving myself over to bondage and the worries of this life. For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death. 2 Corinthians 7:10

It takes time and grace to work though it. When I can bring it back into perspective and remember Jesus is on the throne (such a good service Sunday) all of it fades away.

To remember to live like I have been set free. To choose life.

The whole business of serving God becomes simply a matter of adjusting yourself to the pressures of existing conditions – Hubert Van Zeller
