To Be Broken Into Freedom:

A Spiritual Journey

By Rene Lafaut



This oil of commitment in the clay lamps (think "us") burns together with the breath of life (think "Holy Spirit") to make the light of the Gospel. The light of the Gospel is love.




Often when we have messed up our lives we may find ourselves so stuck in ruts that we can lose vision, and hope; and fall into self-pity very easily. These ruts seem deep, dark, permanent, and prison-like. But they only hide or blindside more desirable ways of thinking, and feeling, and loving that we would never have imagined existed before except the ache in our hearts tells us it must be there.

I have found turning away from (I) idols, and turning away from attitudes such as (II) self-pity, pride, envy, anger, judgmental ism, and hatred, and (III) forgiving those we resent (dealing with anger in healthy ways) and (IV) uprooting lies we believe will bring freedom to love. In this Website I have listed and explained what works for me. I have read a lot of self-help books, prayed a lot, and listened to a lot of people in conjunction with listening prayer, studied the Bible, and had confessors that guided me. Thanks to them and the leading of the Holy Spirit I have a message of hope that flaws to our characters can be healed, and washed away.

Basically...prayer that incompasses: confession, ownership of sin, apology, accepting forgiveness, repenting in faith, and requesting wisdom and a way out of our places of despair or discouragements, then listening for the advice and obeying it will cement positive changes that are healthy and joyful. This pathway is not an easy one. If we give up too easily we will not inherit the promises of God. Jesus promised that those who will knock will have doors opened. The process is nothing like the goal, the desire, and the promise. That means that patience and getting up each time we fall is key to spiritual progress.
