Letting Go Of The Past

My name is Roxana Reyes, and I’m not sure where to begin. I just had the most amazing experience of my life. Last weekend will forever be a milestone moment for me. I attended Freedom Weekend, and going in I thought I pretty much had it all together. I used to ask myself, “What do I need to be free from?” I’m married to my high school sweetheart, I have three amazing kids, I go to church, I accepted Jesus into my life, and I have a rewarding job. What else did I need, right?

Little did I know that God was about to change my life. The Holy Spirit began to reveal things that I had never allowed myself to even think about because I wasn’t willing to deal with them head on (or out loud). God brought some things to light about myself that I didn’t even realize were there.

They were things that had held me back from so much in life.

In order to become the person God created me to be, I had to deal with my insecurities, my shame, my anger, and my control issues. So with the help of some incredible people, that’s what I did. I cried, I laughed, I forgave, and I let go of so many things. I feel like a completely different person!

We all go through difficult seasons in our lives, and we all make mistakes. My own shame and fear used to have control over me, but not anymore. I can tell you this…there’s nothing like seeing people find freedom and fall in love with Jesus, and I say that from experience!

Now, God has complete control of my life.

I am FREE, and I can live the life He has for me.
