"If I give up what I want by giving up what I want because I want -- how can I be free of what I want?"
I'm full of joy for you Dallas - I'm right beside you!
I understand totally what you mean that God finally let go and let Dallas. He did the same thing FOR me today, He "let go and let Paul".
Great post. If you have the way to put that into words, God bless you bro. I just know what you mean 100%, but I can't seem to find the right words to say it.
I guess you could say "If I don't want to want anymore, then I'm free of what I want"?
The joy and happiness for me is in knowing that I no longer want anything because I have everything. God let go and let Dallas (and Paul)! It's not a joke or a play on words, Deb - its reality. It's as simple as belieiving what is real and letting go of what is false.
Today my spirit is free, untouched, and unharmed. It's what I mean when I said life isn't gonna get better - it already is.
Maybe another way of saying it is that life is
eternal. If I believe something other than that, then I can't be free of what I want. I don't need to want anymore today because I have today.
