Free? Really?

“So long as your focus is that from which you believe yourself to be free, you not free, you are still in bondage to it.”  Jennifer H MacRae Howie.

David said, “let us magnify the Lord together”. To magnify means, “to make bigger”. That on which you focus will become larger in your sight. Try it!
Focus on something for a while and watch how you notice more and more detail about it,. I do think when I want to paint something, then I really see the colours and shapes like I do not when I just glance at it in the passing.

If what you are focusing on is the thing from which you have been freed; be it religion, alcohol, a bad marriage, an abusive boss, whatever it is, if it is your focus, you are not free. You are still making it large in your life.

Focus on that to which you have been freed; relationship, sobriety, a good marriage, a wonderful job; notice the good things and they also will grow larger.

My school motto was Phillipians 4:8, what great advise to give to children at school;

 “whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things just, whatsoever things pure, whatsoever things lovely, whatsoever things of good report; if any virtue, and if any praise, think on these things.”

If you find yourself posting on Facebook or Twitter or talking to your friends or yourself, about your bondage or lack of it, think again. Change your focus, you will only get more of what you already have if you don’t. What do you want more of?
