It's Independence Day!

"Let freedom ring. Let the white dove sing. Let the whole world know that today is a day of reckoning! Let the weak be strong. Let the right be wrong. Roll that stone away. Let the guilty pay. It's Independence Day!"

Check out the video posted below of Pat Benatar and Martina McBride singing Independence Day before you read this post.  
It's the inspiration for tonight's blog and shows once again that God can use anything He wants, not just songs from a "Christian" artist, to minister to us.

Are you lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered, queer, questioning, inter-sex?  
It's Independence Day!
Are you straight?   
It's Independence Day!
Have you been hurt by the Church or other Christians?  
It's Independence Day!
Do you think that you don't measure up?  
It's Independence Day!

There is freedom in understanding God's Love for you.

There is amazing Grace that fills your soul when you realize that no matter how many mistakes you have made; No matter how many times you have disobeyed God's plan for you; No matter how many times you have fallen or been hurt........ 
Today is Your Independence Day!

There is no place you can fall that is too far that God's loving arms cannot reach you.
There is no addiction so strong that the power of Jesus cannot destroy it.
There is no sin so great that the blood that was shed on Calvary does not forgive.
There is no hurt so deep that God cannot heal and restore you.

Rise Up and take your place in Equality as a part of the Body of Christ!
Allow God to meet you where you are and Heal You; Love You; Reveal Himself to You!

It doesn't matter what has happened to you, TODAY IS YOUR INDEPENDENCE DAY!

Wake up each morning and drift to sleep every night knowing that the price for your Independence has already been paid on Calvary's Cross.

Take hold of that Hope, that Victory, and Live in it.

No matter who you are or where you have been, there is freedom through Jesus.
His salvation is for you!

If you feel like you have been held back by anything; sin, abuse, addiction, complacency, guilt, or shame, shake off those burdens and claim your Independence today!

Through the Love, Mercy, Grace, Redemption, and Hope that is shown to us from our father God through His Son Jesus, every day is our Independence Day!

Live today in Freedom!
It's Your Independence Day!

Always Remember:
God Loves You!
God Created You!
God Accepts You!

Until next time,
