Thoughts lead to actions. To manage the liberty that we have, it is important for us to resist the temptation to give in to negative thoughts that continue to enter our minds.

Definitions For The Word Liberty

http://dictionary.reference.com/

noun, plural liberties.

1. freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control.

2. freedom from external or foreign rule; independence.

3. freedom from control, interference, obligation, restriction, hampering conditions, etc.; power or right of doing, thinking, speaking, etc., according to choice.

4. freedom from captivity, confinement, or physical restraint:

5. permission granted

Choose Wisely

In Our Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love ~ this is what Deuteronomy 30 says about it: For this commandment which I command you today is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it.

See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.

I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.

Knowing And Believing The Love God Has For Us

And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him. As we glance into Our Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love ~ this we see in 1 John 4.

Guess what? The Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. This interesting bit of information is found in Our Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love In the New Testament Book of 2 Corinthians in Chapter 3.

To All Who Accept Him Christ Makes Us Free

There is a need for us to stand fast in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. This particular thought ~ actually a command ~ comes From Our Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love in Galatians 5:1

Consider this incredible admonition In Our Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love in the Book of Galatians Chapter Five, Verse Thirteen
For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

Don't Be Intimidated Into Giving Up Your Joy

Replace negative thoughts with happy memories.

In Faith ~ Fight ~ against the negative thoughts that continue to pop into your mind. Negativity steals the joy that Our Creator has already provided.

"There is a need for us to stand fast in the liberty by which Christ has made us free."

It is funny to me in a way that only when we fill this need can we be truly free.

In another way, it is not funny at all. It is a great truth.

Nicely written Helen.

Another uplifting post, thanks Helen.

Yes, the continuing fight is to keep negative thoughts away and then get misled by them through thoughtless actions.

I think freedom from within, as in emotional independence is the most important freedom of all...
