America’s Freedoms, Heart-Breaking Slavery, and the Ultimate Freedom

Freed to Fly

Grace-Sets-Us-Free-by-Holley-Gerth

America’s hard-fought-for independence in 1776 will soon be celebrated again with parades, fireworks, speeches, etc. I wonder sometimes: Am I truly grateful for all the freedoms we have in America? How often do I take them for granted?

When freedoms are taken from us, we learn to appreciate them so much more. I’m not trying to cast a shadow of gloom on the celebration of our nation’s independence. We truly have reason to celebrate. But I can’t help grieving that for many, there is no freedom in sight. Those who have lost control of their own wills and cannot even hope anymore. Yes, even in America.

“There are more slaves in the world today
than at any other point in human history,
with an estimated 27 million in bondage across the globe.
Men, women, and children are being exploited
for manual and sexual labor against their will.

    I had no idea! Like I knew there was a lot but my goodness! I pray the Father sees their bondage and has mercy on them and delivers them in a way that only He can! God bless you my sister, your amazing and graceful heart continues to blow me away! ❤ ❤ ❤

    • I was planning on writing my own post about human trafficking but when I read this one, I had to reblog it. So much attention still needs to be brought to this subject. It is horrible and I pray that God will rescue these victims… Thanks for your support.
