Man, I've been very nostalgic the last two days, not sure why, but I went back to my old blog ( yeah xanga!) and got this excerpt from there...

Where the Spirit of the Lord is, There is freedom!
Wow, isn't that the truth? that song just speaks volumes. There is definitely Freedom in Christ. I am no longer held down by the chains a sin, because Christ broke those chains long ago on the cross. Which reminds me of a song.
Remember your chains, remember the prision that once held you, before the love of God broke in, remember the place you were without grace,
It is definitely true to say that there is freedom in Christ, but we also have to remember where we came from to know where we are going. ( i know very cliche) but God wants us to remember that so we won't have to repeat it.
Man, this post was good for my heart. It was good to be reminded of my passion for the Lord then and how it looks now. A friend and I were at the Children's park today talking life and enjoying the great outdoors of East Texas ( haha) We started talking about what it meant to pursue Christ and accept grace. It was a great conversation, but it reminded me of the Freedom that He has called us to, not a freedom to sin freely,but a freedom that causes us to walk boldly with the Lord.
I want to walk fully in the freedom that God has given me.. Galatians 5:1
What does walking in freedom with the Lord look like for you?
