Figuring out I didn't need to impress God has changed my faith-life, how I live in my daily life, the weight of my soul in the presence of my loving Lord, how I think about God and serving Him. Basically everything! Freedom changed me. It can change you too. Get free with me.

What's a paper tiger?

pa*per ti*ger

(noun) - a person or thing that appears threatening but is ineffectual. 

It feels like a paper tiger is going to eat you alive, but it isn't really dangerous. It has no teeth. It is paper.

What were the paper tigers in my life? 1. I thought I could impress God by being good and doing good. 2. I was stuck in the rut of people pleasing. I wanted to impress people with a false impression of who I was. 3. I had been working my head off serving in ministry, and I felt like God would be disappointed in me if I didn't do well.

Letting go of these wrong, dysfunctional ideas about God led me to freedom!

Do you need freedom? Are you motivated by fear instead of love?
