UNTANGLED: Rejoice In Freedom

Galatians 5:1 – Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

John 8:32 – And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.

John 8:36 – If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Six weeks ago, I walked into the orthopedist’s office and rolled out on a knee scooter with a hard cast from my knee to my toes.  I have charcot foot, a diabetic issue that caused them to try to set the bones in my foot, the best that they could to avoid bad deformity in the arch area.  
Blah, blah, blah.   I did come out with a hot pink  cast.  I requested black so I could try to be as discreet as possible, but the young lady doing the cast was dismayed by my subtle choice, so I allowed her carte blanche.  She wrapped my leg in neon pink, cut out black hearts and hot glued them to the cast. She was so proud of herself!

With this bright monstrosity around me, I was ordered to use a knee scooter, although my plans for inconspicuousness already fell through miserably. Last spring I got unwanted experience with the little motorized shopping carts, so I was getting this wheeled mentality down pretty well.  At the stores, Jomathan located me easily by following the beeping sound when I reversed. At home it was faster to limp where I needed to be.  Most often I had no time to turn my ride around in the hallway and reach the bathroom.Wednesday, March 1, when I went to Dr. Davis’ office, the girls sawed off the cast!  They gave me a boot in its place, but that is removable.  I have had many little victories in life, but none affording so much relief.

In the shower I would have to put a plastic cover over my leg to protect the cast, and in the rain, I would cover it with a black garbage leaf bag.I have to say, wearing that thing day after day for 6 weeks, all the heaviness from dragging around that extra weight,  shower restrictions, hauling that scooter everywhere, I have gained much appreciation for folks with physical limitations.  I also see the weight of our sins that we carry around with us,unnecessarily.  The Lord has cut us loose from that burden.

Rather than remaining bound, enjoy the freedom salvation brings.

Holy God

Thank You for this day

Please forgive our sins against You, others and ourselves

Please let us realize, appreciate and enjoy the freedom only You can bring

In Jesus Name

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
