The life we’re meant to live

It is so natural for us to live a life of holy freedom and joy.

We lived near the end of a dead-end road, and I loved leading my youngest horse into the woods on a trail that looped back toward our land. When we emerged from the woods into a neighbor’s big field, I’d take off his halter and send him galloping the half mile back to his herd, his flaxen mane flying in the wind. I could only imagine how good it felt to him to run free like that—something horses were made to do.

Who doesn’t long for freedom? To some in many parts of the world, it might be freedom from oppressive governments; to others, from limiting fears, unhealthy relationships, debilitating mental or physical conditions, or grief. We may long not only to find freedom ourselves but also to help others break free from these and other problems.
