When Tradition Gets in the Way
I was watching an episode of Sofia the First last night as I lull my son to sleep (perks of motherhood, this is now my favorite show) and a mother-daughter scene caught my attention. It was Sofia's witch friend, Lucinda and her mom. The mother and daughter tandem are wicked witches. As part of their mother's day celebration, they flew on to their brooms and hex the whole day. However, Lucinda did not want to be a wicked witch anymore. She wanted to cast good spells instead. Her mom, furious, reminded her that they came from a family of wicked witches--her grandma, her mom and now her.

Growing up, I thought everything was about religion. I grew up religious, feeling guilty at times when I fail to do certain religious activities and feeling so good when I ace one. I thought I was doing well. I thought I secured my eternal future because of all these good deeds. Until one day, I got tired of doing the same routine and was seeking for something else. I wasn't even sure what I was looking for. All I know is, something's missing.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. - Romans 8:1
I am still a work in progress, but I'm just really grateful that I am no longer the person who I used to be.
