A seed was planted 5 years ago that took me many years to understand. My reality is this:
I don’t need a piece of paper reminding me that I am chosen by a man or that I have chosen a man. I don’t need a piece of paper to declare to the world that I have chosen someone I adore and that they have chosen me.
I am no longer in the space for a piece of paper giving someone possession of me, as if it is their “human title” of me (like a car title does for a car). I am not an object. I am not anyone’s possession. I am human and I am not to be possessed by anyone.
In my humanness, I just happen to cohabitate a body to do the tasks I am suppose to do while floating around this earth. In reality, I am a being. I am a Spirit. There is no possession of a being or a Spirit.
It took me 5 years to grapple this reality and truth. 5 years! So if this is your first time to have this idea come your way, remember...it took me 5 years for my eyes to be opened.
I grappled with beliefs I had held onto, a society’s thinking and programming, and the safe feelings of being a possession on a piece of paper for someone and vice versus. I took a deep hard look at to who I was in Christ and who God created me to be.
When you choose, you don’t need a tattoo, a piece of paper, or a “title” or certificate to remind you of who you have chosen to love, every day in every way.
There is FREEDOM in choosing, being, and loving!
