One of my favorite blogs is the Living Proof blog. I love reading what Amanda and Beth have to say and I particularly enjoy my siestas comments. (and I have found new friends that way.) I visited there this morning and Beth had asked two questions as a part of her revising Breaking Free. She asked that we post our answers anonymously. Here are the questions:
1) What one thing threatens you most with bondage? Try to be specific. If your answer is intimate in nature, then use code language. I'll get what you're trying to say.
2) What is your biggest obstacle to living freely and fully in Christ? (Please don't give the answer you think you're supposed to give. Really share what you think holds you back.)
At the time that I posted my comment, there were already 261 responses. I am certain that there will be many more. I felt compelled to answer and after I posted my response, I began to read some of the other responses. And all I could think was that there are a lot of women hiding a lot of baggage. Struggling to get free. In some pitiful way, I am grateful for the company but mostly I am heartbroken that so many of my siestas carry such heavy burdens. I know this isn't what God has intended for His children. So, my siestas, if you left your burden there, please know that I am praying for you. God bless!
