I thought we weren't free here in this world.
But, as I know God more, I realize we are freer than we think we are.
He didn't just give us life. He gave us a place to stay, food for hunger, water for thirst, clothes to wear, knowledge for protection and love, and so much more.
And another gift He gave was the ability to decide. We got to choose because He chose us.
I thought He was forcing us. But no, He gave us the ability to choose. That's why we have to surrender, because we have to be willing. Imagine, God is waiting for us. He's the one waiting for us to come to Him. We've just got to be willing. He's waiting.
