We are FREE in Christ!

The past few days I've been sick for the first time since Ethan was born. I've been completed stuffed up (but a constant runny nose - I know, it doesn't make any sense!) and have had a sore throat, headache, tired and just weak. I've been praying for God to heal my body as I really wanted to go to "Justice" tonight at church. There are hundreds of people (all different denominations) coming together at the Fenton Highschool Football Field tonight to worship our Savior and pray for our community. A lot of people feel God is going to do big things tonight in the hearts of many people and I didn't want to miss it! I woke up this morning feeling so much better than the past couple days and I know it's because of Jesus. I went to bed feeling lousy and woke up feeling so much better. We serve an amazing God who loves us so much! Needless to say, I plan on going tonight and cannot wait!

Friday is July 4th and we (our church) will be going out in the community (Fenton) to spread the love of Jesus to people. We will be washing people's cars, filling up gas tanks and much more to bless others. I pray it sparks (no pun intended) conversations about Jesus and His Love and what freedom really is. Jesus died on the cross for our sins so that we could be free...free from the gates of hell...free from all the hurt and pain that we may have in our lives. I know he has freed me from hurt in my life and I know He is big enough to free you of any hurt that is in yours....just ask Him!

This will be Ethan's first 4th of July and I have a little patriotic outfit and matching bib for him to wear :) It should be a fun day but more importantly I pray it is a day for lost souls to become FREE in Christ and what He did for us.

Be Free in Him!
