There is a freedom that only comes from being in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing, the right way, for the right reason. That is also my definition of righteous. The Psalmist, Janis Joplin, said that ‘freedom’s just another word, for nothing left to lose,’ which I agree with. It seems like we only reach our righteousness or our freedom when we come to the end of ourselves. When we run out of gimmicks, games, and tricks we run into our destiny and purpose; which brings peace, freedom and righteousness. If only I would die to myself and my desires and start living. I desire the best for my wife, daughter, and us as a family. That will only happen when freedom comes.
