Permission: the right or ability to do something that is given by someone who has the power to decide if it will be allowed or permitted
Whose permission do you need to be your best self?
To be bold instead of fearful or anxious?
Self-compassionate instead of self-critical?
Humble instead of puffed-up?
To forgive yourself and others,
instead of being imprisoned by unforgiveness?
To go of the past instead of torturing yourself
Christ has set you free.
You have been called to liberty.
Give yourself permission to be your best self.
You already have God’s permission
and His enabling.
You do not need permission from anyone else.
