Freedom in the Lord is a wonderful thing, 1 Peter 2: 16 & 17 talks about living in complete freedom but to never use your freedom as a cover-up for evil.  We are to recognize the value of every person and continually show love to every believer.  Jesus said, “Love the Lord you God with all you heart, mind and soul and the second greatest commandment, love others as you love yourselves.”  If we could all really grasp the truth of those statements and live them, how great the world would be. 

We are living in a time when many freedoms are seemingly being taken away but yet we have a freedom to love in all circumstances.  Upon writing this, I will be getting married in two days. No one can take away our freedom to love, give and be kind to one another.  Read

There are many injustices in the world today and in our country, but we stand before God honoring Him and His commandments. I submit that we should be bold and loud in our love and care for one another and for what is right in the eyes of God. My new wife and I are going to be intentional about loving and communicating with each other as we all should.  

What are you being intentional about today?  

One thing I will let you in on that you can follow for the next few months, I will be working on a new faith-based movie about finding yourself and your worth in God.  You will have a firsthand account of the progress of this movie.  It will be full of music and some sharp turns.  God cares about every aspect in our lives and when we submit to Him and not our selfish ways, your foundation will be strong, even though the trial’s life brings at you.  You have the strength in God to be overcomers! 

We all must overcome many things in our life, and corporately we must overcome fear!  This last year has been riddled with propagating fear.  Just a few days ago, in a state and a city that has been ‘opened up’ I was chastised immediately upon entering a chain deli by the manager as I was putting my mask on to come an order.  Not to mention as I looked around, not one person seated had a mask on.  I am not going to go into the absurdity of masks or no masks and when you can put them on and when you can take them off.  But, fear of what is unknown and what we are told by flip-flopping experts, is dragging us down and pitting us against each other. 

This is one reason I am offering a practical solution to the fear of Sars-CoV-2. This NASA based technology installed in this home and business Surface Pro air purifier destroys the virus, on surfaces and in the air. Order yours today and be intentional about loving others!
