Live free...

Have you ever felt like you are trapped, in a stuck place, in a pit due to circumstances or due to other people and their choices, their decisions, things that affect you but are simply beyond your control? I’ve been there. But today, I'm living free!

Years ago, during a time of feeling trapped, helpless, and desperate, I got away by myself seeking to hear God. His words to me were, in essence, “Stop being a victim. Quit focusing on what you cannot change about other people or outward circumstances. Start doing something about the things you can change."

It’s easy to do nothing, remain unhappy, and blame it on others. The truth is, no one and nothing can rob you of your purpose and a fulfilled, abundant life but you. That day, the words God spoke to me began a change in my life. Not all at once, but step by step, I started making choices to build my life, to do the things I loved to do, to be the person God made me to be, to quit using others or circumstances as an excuse to remain in a pit.

Freedom is a beautiful thing, friend. Christ died so that we might live free. What's one thing you have the power to change? Why not start today? 


  1. Dear Elizabeth, thank you for the exhortation! I'm transitioning from working full-time to writing full-time and needed a jump start to take back control and accountability. Blessings upon your life of freedom!

  2. Needed to read this- thank you!
