One of my favorite scenes of all times in a movie is one of the last scenes in the movie Braveheart. William Wallace (Mel Gibson) is laid out across the executioner’s table when the priest asks him to beg for mercy and he will have it. When Wallace musters the strength to say his last word he screams FREEDOM! I have watched this movie dozens of times and tears still stream down my face. Of course you already know this if you read regularly.
Most of the men who know me well know I thrive in Freedom, so now that my chains have been lifted from the corporate world again I find myself at a transition point. Do I look for a corporation to manage, do I pursue my dreams of becoming a writer or do I enter the world of ministry again. As I ponder my next move I realize, what I long for is Freedom!
I don’t feel free again.
When I wrote the blog Defining Freedom back in January I didn’t realize at the time how much that post has haunted me. I knew what I didn’t want:
- I don’t want to work in corporate America anymore. I am too honest for the business world and they can’t take my willingness to stand up for what is right.
- I don’t want to work inside the walls of the church. I am not nice enough to fit in there,
- I don’t want to work in the ministry world because I despise raising money.
- I don’t want a 9 to 5 job that keeps me from experiencing the things I do love about my life now.
I hope it will help others who know there is more to life than what they are currently experiencing. Some of the topics will be: financial, spiritual, emotional and relational, but they will all be with one theme in mind FREEDOM.
Looking forward to sharing this journey with you!
