Life often finds us bound by circumstances that seem far bigger and stronger than we are. Helpless and discouraged, we find ourselves living far from our potential and the freedom that we long for. But regardless of what surrounds us, there is hope for freedom. If we will surrender our lives and circumstances to God, He will do more than we can imagine as He changes us from the inside out. Though the circumstances which held us captive may still be present, they now serve as the backdrop to our beauty and strength. We are not who we were on the other side of the fence. By God’s grace and work we have broken through what once held us bound and are free to shine in all our beauty, just like this hydrangea.
