Bondage

“How can you be free, If you don’t even know you’re trap or lock inside?” ― Ann Marie Aguilar

I’m looking around the room, it seems small but peaceful — I can’t hear any sounds and I realize that I haven’t spoken in quite sometime, has it been hours or days? Weeks? I used to sing but now I can’t remember the words. Childhood seems like it may have never happened and I’m not looking forward to growing older, either.

Sometimes, I can hear the faint sound of someone, possibly in the room next to me, I hear her screaming. It’s during those moments that I realize I didn’t choose to be here; if I had chosen to be here, I’d be able to find the door and let myself out.

I made the decision to give my life to a Savior, a few years ago now, and He lives in my heart & I live in this room. Sometimes, I can hear Him whisper & sometimes, I believe that He can hear me, too.

I think that’s exactly where the Enemy wants us to be.

I mean, life’s not too hard & we don’t really need a Savior until tragedy strikes; so, we keep Him on a shelf, in our room, where we choose to stay.  The room is comfortable; really comfortable. It’s filled with regrets & lies about how God can’t possibly use us; we’ve fallen too far, so, we become complacent. & we can’t forget about our insecurities, they fill the shelves & we stare at them, that’s how we know we’re safer inside than out.

And, the craziest part is — we don’t even realize that we are in bondage, this room that we’re kept in, it’s not the place that the Lord intends for us to live — He’s unlocked the door & we’re too busy sitting still to even realize that we could have walked out into FREEDOM, so long ago.

In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house & carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man, then he can rob his house. [Mark 3:27]

Jesus entered the strong man’s house; He TIED up the strong man, so that the Enemy can no longer keep you in bondage & He carried off HIS TREASURE [you!]…

So, I just want to say that there is LIGHT outside of the room — so much light — that you can’t even see your insecurities & the more light that you see, the less you hear the lies & the further all of the regrets fade away. All you have to do is realize that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, has unlocked the door & the only thing that He asked you to do is to follow Him out…
