Unalienable: not subject to being taken away and incapable of being given away.
Our Creator – God – gives us certain things – including life and liberty, happiness and health. And not only are these things not subject to being taken away, but they are actually incapable of being taken away, and even incapable of being given away! They’re ours.
We have the God-given right to be free from disease, free from sadness, free from anything and everything that would restrict our ability to live a happy and fulfilling life.
Our Forefathers declared their freedom. They wrote a declaration of independence. In it they declared that “…these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free…” They declared that they ARE free, and that they should therefore BE free. They gave their consent to this fact in their thought first and declared it and then it was brought to pass.
Understanding that my Creator has made me free, in my prayers I declare my freedom -my freedom from lack, from disease, from harm, my freedom to think for myself, my freedom to worship, my freedom to be good and to do good, my freedom to feel loved and to be loving and kind.
You can declare your independence, your freedom, too !
The good in your life that God has given you is unalienable. May you experience it abundantly.
Happy Fourth of July !
From our DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
In the video below (take what you will from the brief commentary at the very end) I really like the wonderful images of our beautiful country – our “America the Beautiful” – especially the landscapes, many of which are from some of our national parks, which I enjoy visiting.
