“Ain't no feelin' like being free
When your mind's made up
And your heart's in the right place
Ain't no feelin' like being free
When you done all you could
What was misunderstood
It's all good
Ain't no feelin' like bein' free
I'm like an eagle set free
And finally I'm looking out for me
Ain't no feelin' like being free
'Cause my mind's made up
And my heart's in the right place”

This is one of my all time favorite Destiny's Child songs.  I love this song so much and it fits perfectly with this weeks blogpost theme. Free!  Galatians 5:1 tells us to “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ had made us free, and be not entangled with the yoke of bondage.” Man so much said in such a short scripture.   This scripture was the the theme of our women's retreat. The retreat took place last weekend at Solomon Episcopal in Loeranger, La. It was such a beautiful place. Women of Freedom was our theme and chile when it was all said and done I felt just like the lyrics I recited of that Destiny's Child  song. I felt free. All the yoke and burdens I had been carrying around somehow finally took and released from me. Who knew all it would take is one weekend? Really it wasn't the weekend that freed me. When Jesus died He freed me, He was just waiting on me to walk in that freedom. Are you walking in yours?
