The song below says most of what I want to say in today’s post but, as you listen to Tasha Cobbs hammer it home, I want to tell you that I’m blessed to know exactly what she sings about. She’s singing about a great change that we all need. She’s belting out some gospel-soaked lyrics that testify of a freedom we all need. She sounds like she knows what she’s singing about and I’m convinced that she aims for us to believe the message. You can take 4 1/2 minutes and think upon the things that once held you back, enslaved you, wrapped you up and dared you to ever consider freedom. Think about those old wardens who assumed they’d have you in lockdown forever. For some of us the chains consisted of drugs and alcohol. Others were bound by lust and loneliness. Many sat in the cell-block of bitterness and the solitary confinement of abandonment and abuse. Some of you who stop by here regularly to read can remember being suffocated under the heavy chains of man’s religion and the constant struggle to outrun your guilt. I suppose I personally had all those chains wrapped around me at one point or another. Then I met Jesus Christ on August 4, 1994 and experienced the exhilaration of being freed. I’ve never gotten over it.
Jesus Christ is the Chain-Breaker. Give Him the praise and reconnect with that dormant gratitude in your heart as you listen to Tasha Cobbs sing about it all.
