“Standing up for what is right is a key to freedom…A chain of bondage is placed upon a person link by link each time she turns away from the Truth or refuses to voice what is right.” – Jesus Freaks
You speak lies as if they were rays of light.
You spew anger and deceit like rain.
Untruths pour out of your lips like rivers flowing to find higher ground.
Yet, you never see the chains that have wrapped around you link by link.
You stand proclaiming your stories.
Believing this will bring you fame and glory.
You hold onto your belief that slander will bring you the power you seek.
Yet, you never realize the pit in which you have thrown yourself is destined only for disaster.
You cannot see the chains that bind you.
You cannot see the miry pit in which you tread.
Your release lies within the Truth.
Your liberty is bound within your fight for rightness.
Your freedom is enslaved to the veracity of your words.
There is Hope for this prison in which you dwell.
There is a Promise for these chains that hold you still.
Just turn toward Him to see your redemption.
Let His Truth wash over you and make you clean.
