Laura's Story

As I worked on the The Freedom Class workbook, I was reading. I began to really get it! I was filling in the pages, and God pressed on me. I felt weighted down, then it was like He was ripping me out of myself. I could hear ripping, and as this happened, I began to weep. The harder He pulled, the lighter I felt, and the more I cried. Until all at once He yanked really hard, and I brokeā€”but I was lighter than ever! I was bawling like a baby and all up in the Spririt, jumping around. The only way I can describe it is, there was a heat inside this shell, and it got so hot I had to get out.

God set me ablaze and pulled me out of myself to safety. All of a sudden, the heat was gone and a cool feeling rested on me. I was dancing. It was exactly like an insect shedding its old shell. That shell was never really me! Now I will get to know the real me. I have been on this journey for a long time. It wasn’t just Debbie Miller’s class, but it took her class to get me here. Now, I just can’t wait to get to know me!

I don’t feel the weight I used to feel in my head. I know that’s weird to say, but to me it makes perfect sense. Because Satan chained my thinking. I was consumed with how I thought about myself, what others thought about me, what I said, and what I did. I was afraid I was not going to succeed or be loved.

It’s hard to describe how light I feel. Jesus is all I need. Now I will live my life right from this day forward. Will I struggle? Yes, I am human. But praise God, I will no longer be bound!
