ATTEMPTING THE IMPOSSIBLE

“Don’t let the bonds of fear and doubt keep you from attempting the impossible. Each attempt will loosen the chains and you’ll eventually break free, thus finding the ‘impossible’ was actually possible all along.”
― J.E.B. Spredemann

Wow! The best line for me is: “Each attempt will loosen the chains…” Fantastic, isn’t it? So many times we are so reluctant, lethargic and scared to attempt things that look difficult and impossible. But keeping God in mind we should jump in...

Stay Blessed!

FREEDOM FROM PAST

In her book ‘Battlefield of the Mind: Winning the Battle in Your Mind,’ Mrs. Joyce Meyer makes an excellent statement which I am quoting tonight. The quote reads as under:

“Our past may explain why we’re suffering but we must not use it as an excuse to stay in bondage.”

Isn’t it superb? If we can come out of the bondage with little effort from ourselves and little from the outsiders or from God then we should do it as early as possible.

Stay Blessed!

ACCEPTANCE IS THE FIRST STEP TO FREEDOM

My brother in his previous post, asks us all about a bondage that we are in? The question got me thinking. I felt flustered by the question actually. I mean we live in a free world. I am fortunate to be living in a democratic country where the second fundamental right given by the constitution is my right to freedom. Hence I am a free person.

But when I started answering the question, I found myself hesitant. I mean sure I am independent. Free to make my choices but am also bound by those choices. I am in bondage. And one that is sadly self-inflicted. And am quite positive I am surrounded with people with the same ailment. But we are uneasy to even admit that. Well, I am… It makes me feel less of a person to admit that I am not free, that I am bound to my habits actually. And try as I may, I am not been yet far been successfully in breaking free. But I hear they say that acceptance is the first step to everything. So I would urge everyone to try that. Accept the fact that there are shackles which you are bound to. Accept to one-self and you never know.. It might just set you free. So on the count of three… One… Two….

Karl Rahner about Freedom

“How often I have found that we grow to maturity not by doing what we like, but by doing what we should. How true it is that not every ‘should’ is a compulsion, and not every ‘like’ is a high morality and true freedom.” – Karl Rahner

What a quote! So true it is.

Doing good actually has no rules against it but doing wrong things has. Doing good is among the ‘SHOULD’ category which has freedom doing and help us to grow in maturity.

Stay Blessed!

What is your bondage?

Good evening Readers!

How are you doing? Hope you all are reading our posts.

As our topic of the week is “Freedom or Bondage?” I want to post a question for you all.

What is your bondage? Think about it carefully. It might be a bad habit or anger or being cranky… Tell us how you deal with it… We would love to learn and teach alongside.

Looking forward to your answers…
