Freedom's Heart is still beating, can you hear it?

I asked myself, what is the one thing that every human being has a passionate desire for? After contemplating this question and searching my own soul, I found the answer to be freedom. From the day we were created and born into this world our hearts have beaten to the tune of freedom. Can you hear it?
Free~dom Free~dom Free~dom

What is this freedom? What does it mean to be free? Sure we live in the United States of America; the land of freedom and opportunity. We have the freedom of speech, the freedom of religion, the freedom to come and the freedom to go. But is our freedom being taken from us, or maybe a better question, “Can our freedom be taken from us?” All that America has to offer in the land of the free has come with a price, a price that cost many their lives. Fighting to be free, now isn’t that interesting. We will fight for freedom unto our very deaths. Why do we do this? because our Creator placed this passion for freedom down deep in the heart of every living soul.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence in 1776: “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Our founding fore fathers knew what they were talking about. Our yearning for freedom is powerful and it draws us with a great force. Freedom stirs in our souls like a fire that cannot be quenched. We are determined to have freedom no matter the cost. Give me Liberty or give me death was the words of Patrick Henry. Patrick Henry realized that Freedom is worth dying for, he had concluded that if he couldn’t be free alive then he would be free in death.
Even with a man’s last dying breath freedom’s heartbeat will not be silenced, in fact it will beat louder still, for in death the heartbeat of freedom is now united with the heart of our Creator for it is He who is the Author and Creator of Freedom’s heartbeat. When our heart’s are united with God’s they beat as “ONE” and come what may nothing and or no one will ever be able to silence the Heartbeat of Freedom for it is the Heart of God and it never dies! Freedom’s heart is still beating, can you hear it?

A Prison of Harsh Words

Harsh words may come from another man's tongue

How will you respond what must be done

Do you believe the lie and let it have it's way

Or do you believe the truth and listen to what God has to say

Don't live your life inside a prison of harsh words

Be rescued from the lies that you have heard

Choose the Truth and you will see

That this cage of harsh words was only to deceive
