“Break Every Chain”

As I prepare to attend a women’s conference this coming weekend, I am impressed with the powerful theme: Break Every Chain. When I visualize what chains represent, several things come to mind. The first visual is of someone in bondage/someone who doesn’t have freedom, such as a prisoner. However, when I think about what broken chains represent, my heart rejoices because broken chains indicate that the FORMER captive or prisoner has been set free or has been released! He or she is able to run, shout, dance and declare, ‘I AM FREE’!

Bondage looks different for everybody. Maybe you are bound by bad habits, such as drugs, alcohol, gossip, promiscuity or cheating. Maybe you feel stuck or bound because you’re in an abusive or dead-end relationship. Maybe you are bound by feelings or thoughts of low self-esteem or you struggle with your worthiness and value. Maybe you’re bound by the limitations that you or others have uttered about you not being good enough or pretty enough. What you think about yourself and your abilities (or inabilities) will either propel you to greatness or cause you to get stuck in neutral and not move forward.

Realizing how powerful your thoughts are will be instrumental in your decision to take risks to make your dreams come true. Ask yourself what you want your life to look like and then set about to make it happen. You are free to make your life wonderful! Remember that all journeys begin by taking that first step.

Take action now: Meditate on Galatians 6:1 – “Christ has liberated us to be free. Stand firm then and don’t submit again to a yoke of slavery. (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Embrace this truth: Free your mind and the rest will follow.

  1. What a post my friend, so appropriate now for so many followers of Christ, me included. Break every chain every day what a demonstration of how powerful our thoughts are, if we only DO it! Why are we so slow at times. For me, physical drain at the end of the day BUT that is no excuse is it. Well, we should not allow it to be. Break every change and every yoke of bondage daily. Words to walk by. Thank you for these words of wisdom (WOW) for the week.
