So what is all of this Getting Untangled and Conquering Daily stuff mean anyway? Below, I will share with you why I chose the taglines for Clutter Conquest and shed a little light on my passion for helping you Live Free. I will start with defining the words.
All definitions are taken from Merriam-Webster
UNTANGLE: transitive verb
: to loose from tangles or entanglement : straighten out <untangle a knot> <untangle a mystery>
The synonym discussion = to free from what binds or holds back.
CONQUER: transitive verb
: to gain or acquire by force of arms : subjugate <conquer territory>
: to overcome by force of arms : vanquish <conquered the enemy>
: to gain mastery over or win by overcoming obstacles or opposition <conquered the mountain>
: to overcome by mental or moral power : surmount <conquered her fear>
: to be victorious
The synonym discussion = to get the better of by force or strategy.
Free: adjective (Many, many definitions found)
: not costing any money
: not held as a slave or prisoner
: not physically held by something
My combined definition = to enjoy personal freedom; not bound or confined, not enslaved, hampered or restricted.
I have learned much about bondage. Bondage is a state of being a slave. A slave to stuff, believing lies, and negative self-talk to name a few.
First, you must identify the tangle. Name it and claim it. If you fail to admit there is a knot you will never move forward. Get Untangled.
Second, you must gain mastery over the obstacle by having a strategic plan. Hey, this may even mean to take it by force. Conquer Daily.
Third, enjoy the fruit of your labor. Celebrate the small victories along the way. Find joy in the journey. A lavish display of liberation. Live Free.
I am thankful for how far I've come. Grateful to the people who wrote the books I've read, my friends who have encouraged me, the Lord who has healed me, health providers who look outside the box, women of faith that have taught me, and family that has prayed over me and stayed by my side. This is why I share with you so that you too, can walk on the path to freedom. This may seem a little deep, but it can be surprising what is lurking underneath the clutter.
I desire for you to be free from what holds you back; be it clutter, thoughts, or beliefs. I hope I can assist you to go from where you are to where you want to be. It's a battle out there. A battle meant to be won...by conquerors no less.
What has you stuck? Where do you want to start de-cluttering? A closet, a drawer, a thinking pattern? Start today.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 8:37
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galations 5:1
