When You Feel Chained
Right now I literally feel stuck. Stuck in a body that won’t quit aching. Stuck in a situation that has a strangle hold on all areas of my life. Stuck with a diagnosis that apart from divine intervention will not change for the better. Stuck in a bed of pain that I would give anything to get out.
These seasons are frightening if you ponder the “what ifs” too long. You don’t know what’s gonna happen next. You don’t want to suffer the rest of your life. You don’t want your suffering to define your life. And you certainly don’t want to lose faith that God can change things.
As a 94 year preacher old once told me, “Theses are the times you must pray, pray, pray!” Pray when you wake up and when you lie down. Pray when you breathe in and breathe out. Ask other true believers to join you in praying for God in His perfect timing to break the chains that presently have a hold on your life, mind, and future. As my dear friend further said, “After you’ve done all you can do pray, pray, and then pray some more.” But, don’t ever quit believing God can do a miracle. Pray scripture and believe God can break the chains that presently bind you.
“He led them from the darkness and deepest gloom; he snapped their chains.” Psalm 107:14
