PATH TO SPIRITUAL FREEDOM – LIVE A TRANSFORMED LIFE
I heard a story the other day about a man who bought some fries at McDonald’s for his four year old son. His son was eating the fries and the aroma was tempting the dad. He reached over to snag a couple of fries when his son stopped him. “Don’t, Daddy, these are my fries,” the boy exclaimed as he pushed his father’s hand away. Now, in reality, the boy wouldn’t have had any fries if his father hadn’t bought them for him. In essence, it was a moot point. However, what bothered the father was that his son didn’t want to share with him what he had given his son in the first place.
There are times we want to quit. We want to lie down, We’ve had enough: Discouraged, disheartened, frustrated, unsure, disappointed, unhappy. The thoughts roll through our minds. This stinks! I quit. It’s too hard! I don’t want to do this anymore. Frustration is besting us.

We have to look at what we really look like in our heart of hearts. If you want spiritual transformation to happen in your life, it becomes possible with intentional actions that open the door to personal seeking. God says we should come to Him with a meek and contrite spirit. This becomes possible when we humble ourselves before God in humility and openness.
