I have learned freedom, it is letting go of something or someone in order to release the blessings that God has for you. Freedom is letting go of the conformity that one allows others to place them in and surendering one's self to the hand of God to be shaped and molded on the Potter's wheel to His desire and purpose for your life. Freedom is the ability to pursue the dreams of your past and to find the door that will be opened to release those dreams. Freedom is being able to face your fears head on, and collide with them without even being crushed or wounded. Freedom is the ability to face what you once released in pain and see that within that time of sowing, that what you once held onto so close to you, has now flourished into the purpose that God had for it. Freedom is the enablement to sacrifice something or someone that you so deeply cherish, in order to set it free. Freedom is that butterfly that was once embraced in it's cocoon, being released to soar the heights in which God has called it to reach.
