June 10, 2014 legalism



‘For you were called to be free, brothers; only don’t use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but serve one another through love. For the entire law is fulfilled in one statement: Love your neighbor as yourself. But if you bite and devour one another, watch out, or you will be consumed by one another.’ (Galatians 5:13-15 HCSB)
Welcome, Beloved of the Most High.
Stiff-necked legalism is poison. It drowns and destroys. By clinging to a harsh, legalistic mindset we become judgmental and critical of others. It turns us bitter, critical, and flat-out creepy. But, mostly, it blocks love from crashing in and moving us forward.
Satan fights to maintain control. He does not want anyone to come under the authority of the Holy Spirit. He blinds the eyes of the believers … never ending attacks.
Here is your relief, SweetOne, there is a certain rush of freedom that comes when we choose to live out love in our daily-grind hours. The only law you and I really need to get right is love. If we miss that mark, we’ve missed them all.
Wake up.
Love with excellence.
Go. http://www.lewis3sunz.com

I am a blessed woman. Wife, daughter, mother of 3sunz, sister, author of 'Spirit Move Me: Memos to you that sway with the Holy Spirit', Jesus loving Oklahoma girl, I love exploring truth, early morning is my favorite time of day, teacher/trainer, lover of books and news and fascinated with butterflies, extreme right brained pondering creature; enjoy helping others find meaning, tap into their own inspiration and intuition to work more effectively, and overcome struggles and the rising and falling of life in the everyday grind and in small business/micro business worlds. Blessed with the crazy notion, the wild-eyed foolishness, and the madcap belief in the simple idea that I might help one to make a decision that makes a difference in the world . . . as stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous quote…“To know one life breathed easier because you lived, this is to have succeeded.” I get to use my small business background as a former owner of a Flower Shop and Hallmark Store and former co-owner of Disability Specialists, LLC, to help folks build dreams. I hold a M.Ed with emphasis on Adult Training and Education. I’d love to get my Doctorate in Educational Leadership . . . someday. My work centers on the belief that inside each of us lives a mesmerizing soul waiting to be revealed. Every day we can choose to trust the magic of our calling and take those unconventional moves to unlock an enchanted journey. I serve as Business and Industry Director and Business Development Services Coordinator at Canadian Valley Technology Center in Chickasha, Oklahoma.
