When I sat for even a few minutes asking, Father what would You have me ask from You this year?
I knew. Freedom, Stephanie. More freedom...
I believe that God is inviting me to be more freely me: that "me" He intends, He purposed and He created. I believe He is inviting me to live more freely in who I am, what I think and what I feel. ...to say what I think. To feel what I feel. And, to be who I am.
For so long the opinions of others, the fear of man and the many "voices" and expectations have informed the "me" and shaped who I am. I want more freedom from these things... these other voices. I am asking God that I might know more of who He says I am, who He created me to be!
Freedom to be me.
And, freedom from...
Freedom from worry and fear and control and perfection and angst. I believe that God is inviting me to walk fully free from these things... as I grow in trust and peace and rest in Him alone. I actually never again have to be worried. What a thought! I am free from this. I can walk in full freedom from fear and worry.
and freedom from...
This is my prayer for 2013. Teach me Father, I ask!
What would you ask God for this year?
