Spiritually and Emotionally Connected

Daily Dose August 30, 2016


Set Free

I have been set free.

I have scaled the barbed wired fence

That surrounded the prison of my own making.

Tattered clothes are now restored

With new clothes

Which Jesus has offered.

Set Free

Brought through the Refiner’s Fire.

Years of burning now ended.

Hesitantly I test the ground beneath my feet,

For all I knew was my prison cell.

Set Free

Obedience and constant acknowledgement,

This is now my new way of life.

Following my Saviour only,

So that I may always remain,

Set Free.

By Leola  Durant

I wrote this poem after realizing that I no longer felt tortured by all the negative thoughts that ran through my mind on a daily basis. Many of us are allowing the Enemy to manipulate our minds. We want to be free, but it seems that most will look for complex ways to achieve this goal and we will vilify the only One that can totally set us free.

Day after day many of us are wondering; “Why do I feel so sad?” “Why do I hate myself and others?” “Why do I see no hope?” The list goes on and on. Personally speaking, I believe it’s the strong bond we have with the Enemy (Satan and his fallen angels.) He smiles as he watches the destruction of humans. Many say that they want to be in control of their own lives, but don’t realize we are either under God’s Guidance, or we are under the manipulation of the Enemy. Our minds are so warped that we find what the Enemy has to offer sweet, and what God has to offer as restrictive. We do need a shift in our thinking, so that we may live free and lifted up.

    in agreement with your thoughts. It’s very sad that those who think they are in control of their lives really are not although they would never believe that.
