Breaking the Chains
When we talk about habits, we describe the struggle as breaking free from the chains. Certainly it can feel as if a spiritual chain is binding us to our old ways..and preventing us from changing. If you have struggled to break a chain, do not be discouraged by the strength that the chain seems to have over you. Realize instead that because you feel it, then you are in fact pulling away and moving in the right direction! Picture an animal chained to a stake in the ground.. as long as it doesnt resist, it feels nothing.
If you dont feel a struggle as you seek to make changes, to wouldnt that mean perhaps you are resting in captivity?
Want to break a chain?
Keep on pressing forward, feel the resistance, and recognize that as you walk in faith, your effort is met with the power of Gods Amazing Grace that sets you free!
