3 tips to making the holiday season more joyful (link in bio).
The holidays can be a hard time of year as we travel and go back down memory lane. For many, this can mean a lot of stress as we see people we haven't seen in a while or go to a place that brings up memories we've tried hard to forget (high school anyone?). While the holidays are supposed to be such a joyful time, I know for many it's anything but that. The ghosts of the past tend to rise up and taunt us. However, it doesn't have to be this way. God has freedom available to each of us if we'll receive it (John 8:36).
I recently read a book called She is Free by @andiandrew and it opened my eyes to all the areas of freedom available. We have a gracious, forgiving father that wants to provide complete healing and freedom in our lives if we will seek him. You see the biggest problem is not our past, our family or the holidays- it's the lies that hold us captive as Pastor Andi talks about in her book. In her book, she covers several areas of freedom we need from shame, anger, and isolation to fear, unforgiveness and control. •
