Broken Chains

When lost in the mundane of another predictably unpredictable day

A new chain.

When overwhelmed by the unknown on the horizon

A second chain.

When it’s already feeling like 84 degrees at 4:50a

Another chain.

When the baby wakes up too early

A familiar chain.

When the kids are picking at each other

A degrading chain.

When your heart misses your friends and family

A new chain.

When upcoming holidays seem quiet

A distant chain.

When the heat index makes it feel like 105 and your water is out for most of the day

A new chain.

When dinner didn’t turn out like you had planned and the kids complain

An exhausting chain.

When a headache hits again plus a little nausea

A chain.

When you’re overwhelmed with the need surrounding you

So many chains.

When there’s sand in your teeth and all you’re trying to do is understand one single word in the next person’s sentence

A chain.

When it’s quiet in the still of the morning and your heart cries out to the father for the Chopi

Their deep chains.

When your heart prays over your current city, clinging to the truth that sent you here

And suddenly it’s all put back into perspective.

The perspective in which it belongs.

His perspective.

The only thing you’re clinging to.

Break every chain, break every chain, BREAK EVERY CHAIN!!!

-Power in His Name alone.


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
