Freedom Into Slavery

If you can’t tell, Found Who I Am loves music. Hence, another musical post! This one comes from Anthem Lights with their new song, dubbed “Freedom Into Slavery”. Take time to carefully peruse these lyrics:

“Sometimes I wonder
Sometimes I feel
If I didn’t know that You would forgive me
If it wasn’t so real

Maybe I would act different
Maybe I would be blameless
With forgive and forget left out
Would I still think all this wrong was OK

Why do I push You away
When I know You can’t be gone
Why do I fade black and white to grey
When the lines are clearly drawn?

It seems I found a way, I found a way
To turn freedom into slavery
I found a way, I found a way
To turn freedom into slavery.”

This song really hit home with me. As my life progressed from a toddler and as I got older to where I am now, my parents (generously) gave me freedoms and responsibilities. In fact, they gave me a little too much. Yes, I was a bad boy and abused many of the freedoms, eventually leading to my losing more than 70% (ouch) of them. This is why this song in particular was so meaningful to me.

Another thing I realized is all of the freedoms that we receive in life. As you and I grow from teenagers into the adult world, we are going to be given more and more freedoms until the world is at our fingertips. Be careful not to fall into the pit of slavery, stemming from the freedom that was given you. Otherwise, you won’t have many freedoms.

Have a good Summer,

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Howdy! I’m Collin, 16 years old, and a homeschooled junior. I play the piano, ukulele, and many sports. I’m far from perfect, and that’s why I love to share (through this blog) what God is showing me in His word. Although I have many favorite Bible verses, if I had to choose one it would be Romans 12:12, Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” I believe that prayer is the most powerful tool we are given as Christians and it should not be taken for granted. Toodles!
