Break Every Chain

Earlier this week I had a terrible argument with someone that I love tremendously. A simple action dredged up old memories of not feeling (being?) wanted, and of being displaced, and the emotional floodgates were opened up. Gosh, whenever I feel like I might be totally done with those hurts from the past, something happens to remind me that I’m still broken. Just like a piece of china that gets smashed to pieces and put back together with glue, I can be healed, but those cracks will still be there.

I don’t always have to be chained, though. No way will I let the past hold me back from living in the glory of the present. And so, the work continues.

    Be encouraged and know that you can be made whole. Jesus turned water into wine which means He changed the molecular structure of a thing. He can remove the cracks in your china. Be encouraged and hold your faith along the way.

      I will do, Janeane. You are right, He can make anything whole, so my best bet is just to lean on Him.

    Isn’t freedom through Christ a a wonderful thing? I have no idea what I’d do if I had to live this life on my own. I’d be a hot mess!
