This is truly the easiest way for me to express myself. Words often fail me.
But art ~ it's always at my fingertips.
I'm trying to stay free from the law; trying to live in love and grace and mercy; I don't want to settle for anything less than the Real Thing. But I'm still learning what that means. It's a day by day, sometimes hour by hour goal to "not get tied up again." Paul issues the warning because it's a very real danger.
Are we really worshipping, believing, rejoicing, living free? Or merely "attending"?
Am I content to live a decent life in a decent house in a decent neighborhood with my decent family? I don't want to be just content. I want to have joy and drive and determination.
And I don't want to live by the law. I don't ever want to feel "good enough." There's not a list to follow, there's a Person. And He demands much more than a list; He demands it all.
He deserves it all.
Like I said, words fail me sometimes... so I'll keep drawing...
