It's easy to feel trapped and chained down with illness, disability, or whatever your earthly trouble may be. However God really impressed on my heart the other day that while I may be very limited in my physical freedom nothing can take away the liberty that is in my mind, or especially my soul. After all isn't the human heart one of the deepest wells in the world? I can't drive a car, or live on my own, or run a marathon. But I can do many other things using the brain He gave me, even if it's just dreaming when I'm too sick to do anything but lie still.
So never let anything keep you from feeling free, because there is more to independence than the physical.
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
