Standing at the water's edge, toes in the sand, listening to waves crash against the shore, this is where I feel the deepest sense of freedom. The wide open spaces standing in front of me as I listen to the laughter of my family with no schedules to keep, nothing demanding my attention, no one judging me and no masks to wear, Just complete freedom. I feel God here. I feel His presence and I see His beautiful artistry as I look out to the ocean. It's just a sweet, sweet freedom.

I want this freedom every day. Yet, this isn't my every day life. I get the blessing of experiencing this a few days each year, the rest of the year is real life. Real life has schedules and agendas. Real life wakes me early and puts me to bed late. Real life has me feeling as though I have to prove myself to everyone about everything. Real life holds regrets and disappointments. Real life doesn't feel free.

In her new book You Are Free, Rebekah Lyons reminds us that Christ doesn't say we can be free or may be free or will be free, He says we are free. We are. We have freedom in our Father. That same sweet freedom I feel standing at the ocean. That freedom I crave.

Rebekah says, "From the beginning of time, all God ever wanted was our union with Him. He didn't create Adam and Eve because He wanted hep cultivating the earth or naming the animals. Believe me, God is capable of that all by Himself! No, He created man and woman because He wanted to offer companionship. They were the pinnacles of His creation.He delighted in Adam and Eve and wanted intimacy with them. His purpose for them -and us- was freedom to walk with Him."

We are free! God wants us to experience this freedom. He wants us to know this freedom from our past, our pain, our regrets, our guilt, our addictions, our schedules, our need to prove ourselves, our disease to please, from anything weighing us down and binding us up. This freedom comes from Him. The One who created us and made us free to walk with Him.

In You Are Free Rebekah invites us to:
•Overcome the exhaustion of meeting others expectations and rest in the joy of God’s freedom.
•Release stress and anxiety to uncover the peace that comes from abiding in God’s presence.
•Find permission to grieve past disappointments and find strength in your journey toward healing.
•Throw off self-condemnation, masks of perfection, and step boldly into God’s purpose for you.
•Discover the courage to begin again and use your newfound freedom to set others free.

You Are Free releases today! Pick up a copy and learn to walk and live in freedom!

I am so excited to share something big with y'all today! Today Dayspring is debuting over 100 brand new Illustrated Faith items! Over 100!

One of my favorite new Illustrated Faith items is the Organization Bag & Kangaroo Pouch. I am a bag lover! My husband calls me the bag lady, and let me tell you, this bag is incredible!

I've been Bible journaling for over a year now and throughout the past year I've collected a pretty big stash of Bible jouranling supplies. The Organization Bag is great for holding all of my supplies and even holds my Bible! The bag has Ecclesiastes 3:11 on it and has an id tag to label with your name or favorite verse. One of my favorite things about this bag is the side zippers which allow you to open the bag to lie flat.

The Kangaroo Pouch is a zipper pouch with an elastic band that fits perfectly over most Bibles, books and planners. This pouch is great for holding your pens or highlighters. I'm really excited to add this to my Bible so that I'll always have my favorite pens and highlighters no matter where I carry my Bible.

Whether you are beginning in Bible journaling or a seasoned pro, the Organization Bag & Kangaroo Pouch is a must have! To check out the bag and pouch as well as all of the incredible new Illustrated Faith goodies, click on the banner below.
