Broken Chains

 

thank God for broken chains
now only the symbolism remains
outwardly, these chains one can not see
at times, they seemed as real as could be
when I think back on all the years
I was bound by worry and fears
writhing in pain, struggling to be free
God said be still and listen to me
I had to submit so He could cut loose
the chains 'round my neck tight as a noose
to God I did give in
and He freed me from my sin
I love my Lord and Savior above
He broke the chains and filled my soul with love
faith, hope and love remain
'cause God broke each and every chain

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
