We Are Not Owned

Today I was flipping through one of my old notebooks (circa 2009-2010). It was one I used for Bible studies, taking notes in Church, and various other Bible-related things. As I was thumbing through the pages,  I found this little monologue I wrote way back when, that I’d thought I’d share with all of you:

{We Are Not Owned}

We are not owned by storms.
We are not owned by trials.
We are not owned by tribulations.
We are not owned by sorrow.
We are not owned by suffering.
We are not owned by pain.
We are not owned by trouble.
We are not owned by darkness.
We are not owned by temptation.
We are not owned by sin.
We are not owned by the curse.
We are not owned by shame.
We are not owned by guilt.
We are not owned by fear.
We are not owned death.
We are owned by Christ.
We are owned life.
We are owned by Truth.
We are owned by freedom.
We are owned by grace.
We are owned by light.
We are owned by righteousness.
We are owned by joy.
We are owned by courage.
We are owned by peace.

  1. You are becoming filled with wisdom and understanding with every passing year. It’s very encouraging to look back thru journals to see where we’ve been and how far we’ve come. Isn’t it amazing what we find there? Aren’t you glad you wrote this down? Knowing these truths will help you to glorify the Lord. I know you will because your heart is already committed to obeying Him.
