Freedom Means You Are Vulnerable/With Armor :)

Vulnerable/With Armor; this means that you know who you are and what your weaknesses are or at least that you honor as much as you do know. No one likes to admit that they are vulnerable, that they can be hurt in any way. It is a true component of freedom though. It requires observation, honesty, and a safety net. That is why the gospel is so needed in our lives.

We are all vulnerable and limited in our ability to cope with nature, be it weather or human. The Holy Ghost does so much to keep us in a “safe” environment if we will listen to him. Angels are able to assist us, especially as we live close to the teachings of Jesus Christ. And when we do fail we have the witness that Jesus Christ will be our advocate before Heavenly Father.

We are fabulous creatures, created in the image of God. Currently we are limited in that which we are able to see and understand. Here again the Holy Ghost will guide us. Here is where knowing the word of God through the scriptures allows one to stay on a reasonable forward course. As we move forward and repent, as our understanding expands, we will be taught greater things by the Spirit.

The armor is found in Ephesians 6:11-18. “…Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always…”

It is in this attitude that I add three new categories to my blog, Meditation, PTSD, and Men. These areas will make me more vulnerable and exposed to my readers. At the same time it will allow me to show how freedom thinking can allow us to grow. I pray that you will not use my circumstance to find fault and criticize, but rather to see where you are and how one must consciously and courageously push forward in working out our personal salvation for our benefit and truly for the benefit of all mankind.

About Yvonne Debra Simmons aka Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter

Welcome: Please read at your own risk and be responsible for your own edification and enlightenment. Disclaimer: I no longer consider myself a traditional Christian. I do still follow the Jesus I have come to know and I follow the Holy Spirit, as I recognize Him. I believe that Jesus taught us that we are the Christ and the "I Am" he referred to encompassed all of us. Thus, I believe we have misunderstood many teachings of Jesus. I consider myself a seeker and a believer in humanity and that there is a purpose to being; and an answer as to why we have the suffering that we do. I believe that the Holy Spirit is the instructor we should seek and that means trusting your own heart and being responsible for the guidance we follow. That means learning to hear and heed the voice of warning, instruction, or confirmation. I continue to be a student and an observer. Watching for something that tells me my hypothesis is wrong, or that I need to tweak it in some way. Writing is my greatest instructor these days. When I begin a book I do not know where it will end up or how it will develop, but I do know that I will be a changed person when I finish, knowing myself better. That may just be the best we can hope for in life. I feel as if I have died and gone to heaven numerous times as I have uncovered secrets that I long to share. My body will age and fulfill the contract I made with Christ (meaning all of us) to bare witness of His divine curse of suffering, but my spirit and intellect will bare witness of His innocence and the beauty and expanse of The Father's Love for His Son. To me, this, for now, is the ultimate freedom. I wish no argument with anyone. May we each be true to our own conscience. God bless us every One, Namaste~
