Which came first, FAITH or FREEDOM ?
I don't know. The story of "how" FAITH comes about in each person is unique. But what I do know is that my FREEDOM allows me to have FAITH, it gives me space to believe, to doubt, to trust, to depend on God, to wonder about God's mysteries. FREEDOM doesn't tell me what to think, it tells me to listen and observe, and then to believe what my heart it telling me. It's a beautiful thing.
Whether FAITH or FREEDOM was first born in my spirit, FREEDOM is what keeps the FAITH growing. Don't accept a FAITH that is purely prescribed by others. Grow FAITH in the fertile soil of your own soul.
