A Call To Freedom

Leave a comment

image◽️Today is set aside to honor Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. In Wikipedia’s words: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American pastor, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African – American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his christian beliefs. King helped organize the 1963 March on Washington where he delivered his “I have a Dream” speech. “Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last.”
◽️In his letter to the Romans, Paul says this about freedom…”Offer yourselves to the ways of God and the freedom never quits.” “We’re free to live a new life in the freedom of God.” Romans 6:17, 7:6 MSG.
◽️God’s gift (to us) is real life, eternal life, (thank you God a free life!) delivered by Jesus, our Master. Romans 6:23 MSG
◽️This “freedom~gift” was given by our Papa God when he sent His one and only son Jesus, to be born for us, walk on this earth for us, and die on the cross for us.
◽️Freedom was paid with a price, and Jesus was the sacrifice. His Father sent him from above to show the world his perfect love. A love that reaches from the heights of the Heavens to the depths of the sea. A love beyond all measure for you and for me…..Let Freedom Ring!!!

Hey there....so glad you dropped by! My name is Elizabeth Maxwell, but everyone knows me as "Beth." I am the wife to Kevin Maxwell of 38 years. We have 3 grown sons, one daughter-in-law, and our adopted daughter Maria. God laid on our hearts to experience an awesome journey in 2000, in adopting our special needs daughter, Maria Dean. God has truly been with us every step of the way on our journey. I live in the beautiful foothills state of Tennessee. I love my beautiful Tennessee home. From the foothills to the whippoorwills, God's beauty shines forth here. I love to laugh often. I enjoy old movies, reading books, and I love to sing in my award (Dove) winning choir at First Baptist Church! I love my sweet little job, working with Kindergartners...and yes "kids do say the darndest things!" I am encouraged by God's word and I love to dig into it. I am by no means a scholarly expert, but I do delight in His encouragement for me. I am a friend of God...after all, God's got my back! And not just my back - "He goes before me." (Deuteronomy 31:8) "He's right beside me." (Hebrews 13:5) and, "He surrounds me on every side." (Psalm 125:2) These verses remind me that I am not alone while traveling on this "Journey Called Life!" Won't you travel with me? My prayer is that you will be encouraged, and know that you are not alone on this journey called life!
