In the movie “Bruce Almighty”, Jim Carrey is given ultimate power. However, one of the rules is that he cannot mess with free will. In one of his discussions with God (Morgan Freeman), he says “how can I make someone love me without messing with free will?”. To which God replies “If you can figure it out, let me know. I have been trying for years”. Our walk would be so easy if it wasn’t for that darn free will. As Jennifer Knapp sings “Lord, my will has deceived me, please come and free me, come rescue this child”

We all fight the battle that Paul outlined in Romans 7:14-20. The tug of war is what will continue to refine us into the image and the form of our refiner. It will at times be uncomfortable, but the end result is a priceless work of art which is unique to each one. I felt like I was supposed to post this song for anyone that needed to hear it. In doing so I realized maybe it was really meant for me as well.
