Thank You, For Letting Me Be Myself

Have you asked yourself why you feel the need to control your child, your spouse, a sibling, a friend? There are many possibilities, but fear is the most probable. Usually, it has nothing to do with them; it’s all about you.

I can’t remember one scripture where Jesus said that one person has greater significance than another. I do recall Him warning, “The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy.”

Fear is a dictator. It ruthlessly controls, with no checks and balances.

Control is a thief. It wants to dominate—to exercise oppressive restrictions over another’s freedom. It robs personal expression—the liberty to be one’s true self.

Let’s get free, and give others their freedom.

Remember: True Love gave free will.

Thank you, God, for lettin’ me be myself, again…and again, without condemnation. Just as I am.

P.S. This fourth verse of “Thank you” says it all:

Flamin’ eyes of people fear, burnin’ into you                                                                      Many men are missin’ much, hatin’ what they do                                                          Youth and truth are makin’ love, Dig it for a starter                                                          Dyin’ young is hard to take                                                                                                  Sellin’ out is harder.                                                                                                            – Sly & The Family Stone, “Thank you” (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)
