Today's Christian Woman focuses on spiritual disciplines and practices to help you go deeper in your faith

Freedom

True freedom is about living within the bounds of God’s grace. It's about rising above our circumstances to see how God designed us and desires for us to live and love and thrive. What often threatens to control us is our attitudes, fears, insecurities, doubts, and worries. Slavery threatens to overtake us when we forget who God is, and instead focus on our circumstances. This practice helps keep our focus on the freedom that God promises, that he embodies. We were made to be free—and through the blood of Jesus, we can live free indeed.
